There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in A1.

Seventh-ranked Kolossos HH (12-13) gave a tough game to third ranked AEK Athens (19-6) on Saturday. AEK Athens managed to secure only one-point victory 82-81. However their fans expected much easier game. The hosts trailed by 6 points at the halftime before their 26-15 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. AEK Athens made 27-of-31 free shots (87.1 percent) during the game. 29 personal fouls committed by Kolossos HH helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American-Georgian guard Michael Dixon (186-90, college: Memphis, agency: Diamond Sports) stepped up and scored 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists (made all of his eight free throws) for the winners and naturalized Serbian Dusan Sakota (210-86, agency: BeoBasket) chipped in 21 points. At the losing side American point guard Langston Hall (193-91, college: Mercer) responded with 18 points and 8 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. AEK Athens maintains third place with 19-6 record having five points less than leader Olympiacos. Kolossos HH lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the sixth position with 13 games lost. They share it with AGOR. AEK Athens are looking forward to face Aris (#5) in Thessaloniki in the next round. Kolossos HH will play at home against Aiolos Trikallon and is hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.
A1 top team - Olympiacos (24-1) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed ninth ranked Promitheas (10-15) in Patras 72-53. Forward Thomas Zevgaras (201-1) nailed 14 points and 6 rebounds for the winning side and Vassilis Spanoulis accounted for 10 points and 4 assists. Senegalese forward Mouhammad Faye (208-85, college: SMU) came up with 9 points and 8 rebounds for Promitheas in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Olympiacos have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 24-1 record, which they share with Panathinaikos. Newly promoted Promitheas keeps the ninth position with 15 games lost. They share it with Trikalla. Olympiacos will play against Kymis (#11) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Promitheas will play against Koroivos and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Rethymno supposed to be also quite interesting. Second ranked Panathinaikos (24-1) played at the court of 6th ranked AGOR (12-13). Panathinaikos smashed AGOR 101-74 on Monday. Mike James fired 19 points and 4 assists for the winners. Toarlyn Fitzpatrick produced 14 points and 5 rebounds for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the twelfth consecutive win for Panathinaikos. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Olympiacos. AGOR at the other side keeps the sixth place with 13 games lost. They share the position with Kolossos HH. Panathinaikos will meet at home PAOK (#4) in the next round. AGOR will play against Doxa Lefkadas and hope to secure a win.
An interesting game took place in Lavrio where 4th placed Aris (14-11) was upset on the court of ninth ranked Lavrio (11-14) 75-70. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Aris. Worth to mention a great performance of Demarius Bolds who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 6 rebounds. Aris' coach Dimitris Priftis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. The victory was the third consecutive win for Lavrio. They moved-up to eighth place. Aris at the other side keeps the fourth position with 11 games lost. Lavrio's next round opponent will be Apollon Patras (#13) on the road which should be theoretically an easy game. Aris will play against AEK Athens (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 25: Koroivos lost to PAOK on the opponent's court 66-75. Trikalla managed to outperform Doxa Lefkadas in a home game 74-68. Apollon Patras recorded a loss to Kymis on the road 76-70.

AGOR - Panathinaikos 74-101

The game in Rethymno supposed to be also quite interesting. Second ranked Panathinaikos (24-1) played at the court of 6th ranked AGOR (12-13). Panathinaikos smashed AGOR 101-74 on Monday. The game without a history. Panathinaikos led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 20-of-23 free shots (87.0 percent) during the game. Panathinaikos looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. American point guard Mike James (185-90, college: Lamar) fired 19 points and 4 assists for the winners. International point guard Nick Calathes (198-89, college: Florida) chipped in a double-double by scoring 10 points and 11 assists. Four Panathinaikos players scored in double figures. American forward Toarlyn Fitzpatrick (203-89, college: S.Florida) produced 14 points and 5 rebounds and forward Haralampos Giannopoulos (200-89) added 9 points and 6 rebounds respectively for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the twelfth consecutive win for Panathinaikos. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Olympiacos. AGOR at the other side keeps the sixth place with 13 games lost. They share the position with Kolossos HH. Panathinaikos will meet at home PAOK (#4) in the next round. AGOR will play against Doxa Lefkadas and hope to secure a win.

Promitheas - Olympiacos 53-72

A1 top team - Olympiacos (24-1) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed ninth ranked Promitheas (10-15) in Patras 72-53. The game was mostly controlled by Olympiacos. Promitheas was better in second period 16-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Forward Thomas Zevgaras (201-1) nailed 14 points and 6 rebounds for the winning side and the former international Vassilis Spanoulis (193-82, agency: BeoBasket) accounted for 10 points and 4 assists. Senegalese forward Mouhammad Faye (208-85, college: SMU) came up with 9 points and 8 rebounds and American guard Lucky Jones (198-93, college: Robert Morris) added 13 points and 5 rebounds respectively for Promitheas in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Olympiacos have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 24-1 record, which they share with Panathinaikos. Newly promoted Promitheas keeps the ninth position with 15 games lost. They share it with Trikalla. Olympiacos will play against Kymis (#11) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Promitheas will play against Koroivos and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Lavrio - Aris 75-70

An interesting game took place in Lavrio where 4th placed Aris (14-11) was upset on the court of ninth ranked Lavrio (11-14) 75-70. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Aris. It looked good early as Aris took a 1-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Lavrio had a 17-15 second period charge getting the lead and Aris was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 70-75. Lavrio forced 21 Aris turnovers. 24 personal fouls committed by Aris helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Demarius Bolds (193-84, college: Missouri Western) who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 6 rebounds. His fellow American import Sean Evans (203-88, college: St.John's) contributed with 8 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Bolds is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. American guard Will Cummings (188-92, college: Temple) answered with 25 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists and Serbian power forward Tadija Dragicevic (206-86, agency: AproK Sports Group) added 11 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists in the effort for Aris. Aris' coach Dimitris Priftis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. The victory was the third consecutive win for Lavrio. They moved-up to eighth place. Aris at the other side keeps the fourth position with 11 games lost. Lavrio's next round opponent will be Apollon Patras (#13) on the road which should be theoretically an easy game. Aris will play against AEK Athens (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Top scorers:
Lavrio: D.Bolds 22+6reb+1ast, M.Perakis 12+1reb, A.Hamilton 11+3reb+1ast, S.Gray 9+1reb+6ast, S.Evans 8+9reb+1ast, D.Kaklamanakis 6+4reb

PAOK - Koroivos 75-66

Very expected game in Thessaloniki where 11th ranked Koroivos (7-18) was defeated by fifth ranked PAOK (14-11) 75-66. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 20-7. But Koroivos won third quarter 25-18. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. PAOK dominated on the defensive end, holding Koroivos to just 7 points in first quarter. 25 personal fouls committed by Koroivos helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a very good performance for Latvian swingman Zanis Peiners (203-90) who helped to win the game recording 14 points and 9 rebounds. Power forward Vangelis Margaritis (203-82) contributed with 12 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. PAOK's coach Soulis Markopoulos allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American guard Eric McClellan (193-93, college: Gonzaga) answered with 19 points and 6 rebounds and the other American import forward Devonta Pollard (203-94, college: Houston) added 11 points and 9 rebounds in the effort for Koroivos. PAOK moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Aris. Koroivos lost their fifth game in a row. They dropped to the twelfth position with 18 games lost. PAOK's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Panathinaikos in Athens and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Koroivos will play at home against Promitheas (#9) and hope to win that game.
Top scorers:
PAOK: N.Sobey 15+1ast, Z.Peiners 14+9reb+3ast, V.Margaritis 12+6reb+3ast, I.Aska 10+3reb, A.Tsochlas 8+1reb+1ast, A.Koniaris 7+5reb+4ast

Trikalla - Doxa Lefkadas 74-68

Rather predictable result when tenth ranked Aiolos Trikallon (10-15) defeated at home bottom-ranked Doxa Lefkadas (4-21) 74-68. However just six-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory.

It was a very good performance for American guard Kelsey Barlow (196-91, college: Ill.-Chicago) who helped to win the game recording 14 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. Naturalized French Angelo Tsagarakis (191-84) contributed with 15 points for the winners. Montenegrin Ivan Maras (207-86) answered with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 11 rebounds and power forward Georgios Georgakis (204-91) added 13 points (perfect from the field making all six shots) in the effort for Doxa Lefkadas. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Aiolos Trikallon moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Promitheas. Doxa Lefkadas lost their third game in a row. Newly promoted team stay dead last with 21 lost games. Aiolos Trikallon's next round opponent will be higher ranked Kolossos HH (#7) in Rodou and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
