Kolossos still up there with the big boys

Kolossos kept up with fellow leaders Panathinaikos and Olympiakos by beating the season’s other surprise package, AGO Rethymnou, on January 4 as the 11th round of games produced some highly entertaining encounters.

The Rhodes team needed overtime to beat AGOR 93-90 and take its record so far to nine wins out of 10 games.

Olympiakos, which scored an important 80-69 win at Panionios on the same day, and Panathinaikos, victor over Peristeri a day later with a 104-69 score, have the same record as Kolossos.

Panathinaikos was happy to welcome back forward Stratos Perperoglou after a seven-month layoff.

KAOD and Ikaros scored very important wins in their fight to avoid the drop, for which Maroussi is increasingly the favorite.

KAO Dramas thrashed PAOK 93-72 after an impressive performance at home for its fourth win of the season. Ikaros came from behind to down Ilisiakos 75-69 at Glyfada.

Maroussi suffered its 10th loss in as many games at Aris, although it led for a significant part of the game at Thessaloniki. Eventually Aris came out with a 79-71 victory.
