Georgios
Papagiannis
An astonishing opening for the Host team of Greece took place in the game which just ended in Crete - Heraklion of Greece. The Greek NT dominated at al edges and with an amazing second half the Greek players with Georgios Papagiannis (214-C-97) being the man of the match, thrashed the Korean NT with 28 points difference and they will now play against the Serbian NT for the top place of Group D, as earlier the Serbian NT dominated over Dominican Republic with 77-82 in a very difficult game which decided the very end.

About the game now, the Koreans played as good as they could against the Greek NT with the host team being quite nervous and full of stress in the first period. The entrance though of the younger player of the competition, Michalis Lountzis (191-PG-98) (16 years old) gave a new perspective to the Greek NT and with good organization, good defense and some very nice assists, the Greek NT went to half time with an 8 points difference 28-36.

In the third period though everything changed as the Greek players were quite successful in finding their big men (Georgios Papagiannis and Tsalbouris) who had no opponent in that heights, and the game became an one man's show with Georgios Papagiannis succeeding an amazing double-double figures with 16 points and 16 rebounds. It is worth mentioned that the newcomer in the Greek NT the Greek-American guard Tyler Dorsey (193-SG-96) was among the stand outs of the game with his energy, rebounds, defense and amazing steals, not to mention his 11 points, gave an American style to the Greek NT and offer some really nice scenes in the thousands of Fans who watched the game in the court 'two aorakia'

Top scorer of the teams were as follows:
Korea: Jeon 20 points, Song 16
Greece: Georgios Papagiannis 16 points, 16 rebounds, 5 block shots, Mitoglou and Tsalbouris 12 per head, Tyler Dorsey 11 and Kottas 10
