A1 top team - Olympiacos (16-1) managed to deliver another win on Monday. This time they beat tenth ranked KAOD (5-12) in Dramas 91-81. The game without a history. Olympiacos led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 23-of-30 free shots (76.7 percent) during the game. Olympiacos looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. International guard Vassilis Spanoulis (193-82, agency: Beo Basket) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 5 assists. American guard Acie Law (190-85, college: Texas A&M) contributed with 10 points for the winners. American swingman Kevin Palmer (198-87, college: Texas A&M-CC) answered with a double-double by scoring 29 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists for KAOD. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Olympiacos have a solid series of three victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 16-1 record. KAOD lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the tenth position with 12 games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Olympiacos' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Athens Peristeri GS.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Apollon Patras (8-9) and Kavala (5-12), which took place in Kavala. Higher ranked Apollon Patras lost to thirteenth ranked Kavala in a road game 67-85. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Apollon Patras. American forward William Coleman (206-88, college: Memphis) stepped up and scored 35 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds for the winners and Kieron Achara chipped in 17 points and 6 rebounds. point guard Nikos Argyropoylos (186-78) responded with 19 points. Apollon Patras' coach Nikos Vetoulas rotated eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Kavala moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Newly promoted Apollon Patras keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. They share it with Aris. Kavala will play against higher ranked PAOK (#4) in Thessaloniki in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Apollon Patras will play at home against Kolossos in Rodou and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game between fifth ranked AGOR (11-6) and 10th ranked Ilysiakos (5-12) in Rethymno on Sunday ended with biggest points difference. AGOR outscored guests from Athens 95-68. Nestoras Kommatos nailed 24 points for the winning side. Dominique Morrison came up with 21 points and 6 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) for Ilysiakos in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. AGOR maintains fifth place with 11-6 record. Ilysiakos lost third consecutive game. They keep the tenth position with 12 games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. AGOR will meet bottom-ranked Panelefsiniakos (#14) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Ilysiakos' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Athens Panathinaikos.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 17: PAOK beat Peristeri GS on the road 63-55. Panathinaikos destroyed Ikaros on its own court 97-72. Panionios managed to outperform Kolossos in Athens 70-65. Aris managed to beat Panelefsiniakos at home 68-55.

Panathinaikos - Ikaros 97-72

Very expected game when 8th ranked Ikaros (6-11) was smashed by second ranked Panathinaikos (14-3) in Athens 97-72 on Sunday. The game was mostly controlled by Panathinaikos.
