Kavala produces shock of the season beating PAO

European champion Panathinaikos was upset at Kavala on November 27, a result that added fresh interest to the local championship just one week after the Greens’ win over Olympiakos.

Kavala enjoyed a three-point festival that saw it beat the champion 79-70 and climb to third spot on the table, while Panathinaikos showed it had been exhausted by its efforts against Olympiakos and Malaga in the space of one week.

The Greens had just 20 percent in three-pointers, while the hosts had an impressive 12 out 23 outside the 6.75-meter line.

Olympiakos and Panionios top the table with five wins in six games. Olympiakos defeated visiting Kolossos Rhodes 93-82, while Panionios saw off a winless Maroussi 69-67 away.

PAOK came from behind to down AGO Rethymnou 76-71 at home in a very tight game to climb to fourth on the table.

Ilisiakos moved up to fifth, beating Peristeri in comprehensive fashion with a 70-59 score.

Ikaros Kallitheas scored its first league win this year, with a 79-68 victory over newly promoted KAO Dramas at the court of Glyfada.
