Home wins see PAO, PAOK and Aris through

Panathinaikos, PAOK and Aris have advanced to the semifinals of the Greek league after their home wins on Tuesday that saw them all win their series with a 2-1 score.

Panathinaikos strolled to a 100-70 home win over Kolossos Rhodes behind closed doors, with young Giorgos Papayiannis getting the opportunity to shine, scoring 14 points.

PAOK shook off an early AGO Rethymnou lead to win 75-62 in Thessaloniki, led by JR Bremer, scorer of 19 points. However the black-and-whites are sweating over the injury to Julian Vaughn.

Aris eliminated AEK after an eventful game in Thessaloniki. AEK led in the first quarter (24-19) and the match was interrupted due to fan action. Part of the stands was evacuated for safety reasons, but the tide of the game changed as AEK was unrecognizable after the restart. Eventually Aris won 79-68 after leading by as many as 20 points.

In the semifinals Panathinaikos will face PAOK and Aris will meet the winner of the Olympiakos vs Korivos Amaliadas pair that will start its series with Game 1 on Thursday.
