PAOK - Trikalla 97-86

There was no surprise in Thessaloniki where 9th ranked Aiolos Trikallon (8-12) was defeated by fifth ranked PAOK (11-9) 97-86. Aiolos Trikallon was tied at the half but could not keep up in last two quarters eventually losing the game. PAOK made 26-of-34 charity shots (76.5 percent) during the game. 27 personal fouls committed by Aiolos Trikallon helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The winners were led by American power forward Keith Clanton (205-90, college: Cent.Florida) who scored that evening 20 points and 9 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) and the other American import guard Thaddus McFadden (188-87, college: Fairmont St., agency: Higher Vision Sports) supported him with 20 points and 4 assists. PAOK's coach Soulis Markopoulos used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to get some rest. Even 25 points and 4 assists by American guard Kelsey Barlow (196-91, college: Ill.-Chicago) did not help to save the game for Aiolos Trikallon. Lithuanian Gilvydas Biruta (203-91, college: Rhode Island) added 19 points and 7 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for the guests. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. PAOK moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Aris and Kolossos HH.

Promitheas - AEK Athens 67-86

The game in Patras was also quite interesting. Third ranked AEK Athens (16-4) played at the court of 8th ranked Promitheas (8-12). AEK Athens did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 86-67 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Promitheas. The guests trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 7-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 86-67. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international swingman Kostas Vasiliadis (200-84) who helped to win the game recording 17 points and 7 rebounds and the former international center Loukas Mavrokefalidis (207-84) who added 15 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Five AEK Athens players scored in double figures. Bosnian-Serbian power forward Miroslav Todic (205-85, agency: Diamond Sports) responded with 15 points and 6 rebounds and American point guard Jerel Blassingame (175-81, college: UNLV) scored 11 points and 5 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. AEK Athens maintains third position with 16-4 record having just three points less than leader Olympiacos.

AGOR - Kymis 84-73

No shocking result in a game in Rethymno where seventh ranked AGOR (9-11) defeated 12th ranked Kymis (6-14) 84-73. The game was mostly controlled by AGOR. Kymis was better in second period 26-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They shot the lights out from three nailing 16 long-distance shots on high 59.3 percentage.

Four AGOR players scored in double figures. Even 19 points and 6 rebounds by center Stavros Toutziarakis (210-87, agency: Octagon Europe) did not help to save the game for Kymis. American forward Daniel Orton (208-90, college: Kentucky) added 16 points and 5 rebounds for the guests. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. AGOR maintains seventh position with 9-11 record. Newly promoted Kymis keeps the twelfth place with 14 games lost.

Koroivos - Apollon Patras 71-67

Rather expected game when 13th ranked Apollon Patras (5-15) was defeated on the road by eleventh ranked Koroivos (7-13) 71-67. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Apollon Patras won third quarter 16-7. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The winners were led by American Toddrick Gotcher (193-93, college: Texas Tech) who scored that evening 26 points and 6 rebounds and the other American import guard Markel Starks (188-91, college: Georgetown) supported him with 13 points and 6 assists. Even 22 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists by American-Ukrainian guard Steven Burtt (189-84, college: Iona) did not help to save the game for Apollon Patras. American guard Tyler Kalinoski (193-92, college: Davidson) added 8 points for the guests. Both coaches allowed to play bench players in such tough game. Koroivos moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Lavrio. Apollon Patras lost third consecutive game. They keep the thirteenth position with 15 games lost. Koroivos' next round opponent will be Lavrio (#11) on the road. Apollon Patras will play against the league's second-placed Panathinaikos and will have a slim chance for a victory.
