Keravnos Strovolou did it again!!! After a really tough home loss three days ago with nine points 86-95, the players and the coaching team of Keravnos Strovolou traveled in Denmark to face the Baken bears without many options as the Strovolos team was looking for a victory of 10 points in order to cover up the loss in Papaellinas arena, a home court which the last couple of years is not unbeaten as the home team lost quite many times there even though last year was the absolute winner and won the double. Christoforos Livadiotis and his players were not very successful in their home court, but they were very strong when they were paying visits allover the island, this time they did it abroad….

Having an awful first period, where the Danish were fantastic and succeeded an easy 28-18, gaining the absolute advantage, having in mind the +9 of the first round, and by the 15th minute the deficit went up to 15 points (40-25), Everybody thought that all the hopes died as the Danish has a pillow of 24 points!! but…. Livadiotis’s troops never said their last word, with an awesome and unique for the Cyprus facts and figures, the second half was rejuvenating for the Strovolos team.. With an awesome Jake O’ Brien and Josh Hagins (185-G-94, college: UALR, agency: Haylett Sports) in the offense and solid defense by Stylianou, Rorie, Taylor and the MVP of the game Hagins, the Strovolos team outscored the Danish initially and in the third period with 13-25 and the absolutely fantastic fourth period were the Danish never enter into the court from their shock, and couldn’t score at all 11-30 for Keravnos and somewhere there the history was written!!!

Keravnos will fly home with an awesome road win of +25 and is now getting ready to play against an even tougher team, the Lithuanian power house Lietkabelis once more as an outsider as it was against the Danish!!

Top scorer for Keravnos was Jake O’Brien who ended the game with 22 points and 8 rebounds, but the MVP of the game was the awesome Josh Hagins who ended the game with an amazing double-digits scoring 17 points, dashing down 10 rebounds, giving 5 assists, stealing he ball 3 times from his opponents, and remaining in the court for 32 minutes!!

Coach Livadiotis saw four of his players having double digits (O’Brien 22, Hagins 17, Rorie 14, and Abukar 14) but also another 3 of his players being very close to double digits with Stylianou and King scoring 8 points per head and Vernon Taylor scoring another 7 in an amazing night for the Cyprus team and the Cyprus Basketball!!

The Cyprus team was much better in all the statistical areas and was obviously the fair winner of the game, having 45 rebounds against 32, shooting 86% from the charity line against only 45% of their opponents and having the amazing (for a road game) percentage of 46% from the three point line against only 25% from the home team!!!
