36-year old shooting guard Keith Langford (193-SG-83) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for AEK and receives a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 8.
He had the game-high 33 points adding two rebounds and five assists for AEK in his team’s victory, helping them to beat Lavrio (#4, 5-3) 73-60. AEK is placed at 6th position in Greek league. AEK is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 4-4 record. In the team’s last game Langford had a remarkable 64.3% from 2-point range and got three three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be AEK’s top player in his first season with the team. University of Kansas graduate has very impressive stats this year. Langford is league’s best scorer averaging so far 20.4ppg. Langford

Second best performed player last round was Octavius Ellis (208-C-93) of league’s second-best Promitheas. He is American center in his 2nd season at Promitheas. In the last game Ellis recorded impressive double-double of 13 points and 14 rebounds. Of course Promitheas cruised to a 87-76 relatively comfortable win over the lower-ranked Panionios (#12, 2-6). This victory allowed Promitheas to move up to second position in the standings. His team’s 6-2 record is not bad at all. Ellis is well-known at Promitheas and he already established his position as one of the team’s leaders.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Lefteris Bochoridis (193-PG-94) of Aris (#11). Bochoridis showcased his all-around game by recording 27 points, five rebounds and four assists in the last round. He was a key player of Aris, leading his team to a 72-59 easy win against the higher-ranked Peristeri GS (#3, 6-2). The chances of Aris not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 6 games, recording just three victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Bochoridis could try to bring Aris’ a little bit higher in the standings. Bochoridis has a very solid season. In 2 games in Greece he scored 25.5ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Langston Hall (193-PG-91) of Promitheas – 23 points, 3 rebounds and 7 assists
5. Antwaine Wiggins (203-F-88) of PAOK – 17 points and 12 rebounds
6. Jimmer Fredette (188-G-89) of Panathinaikos – 24 points and 4 assists
7. Samardo Samuels (206-F/C-89) of Panionios – 19 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists
8. Nikos Pappas (194-SG-90) of Panathinaikos – 12 points, 4 rebounds and 10 assists
9. Vasileios Charalampopoulos (205-SF-97) of Ionikos Nikaias – 20 points and 3 rebounds
10. Olivier Hanlan (193-G-93) of Iraklis – 24 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists

The Player of the week is selected based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it’s accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) – 2*BSAG – 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM – 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) – 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) – (FTA-FTM)

The most important game in the last round took place in Lavrio between third ranked Lavrio (5-3) and seventh ranked AEK (4-4) on Saturday night. Lavrio was defeated by AEK at home 60-73. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Lavrio. The game without a history. AEK led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. American players dominated the game. Keith Langford (193-83, college: Kansas) orchestrated the victory by scoring 33 points (!!!) and 5 assists. Power forward Marcus Slaughter (204-85, college: San Diego St.) contributed with 9 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Guard Quenton DeCosey (196-93, college: Temple) replied with 11 points and 8 rebounds for Lavrio. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. AEK have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Ionikos Nikaias and Kolossos HH. Lavrio at the other side dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. They share it with Ifestos. AEK is looking forward to face league’s second-placed Promitheas in Patras in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Lavrio will play on the road against Iraklis in Thessaloniki and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Peristeri GS (6-2) against thirteenth ranked Aris (3-6) on Sunday night. Visiting Peristeri GS was defeated by Aris in Thessaloniki 72-59. Worth to mention a great performance of international point guard Lefteris Bochoridis (193-94) who helped to win the game recording 27 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists (was perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line !!!) and Vladimir Dragicevic who added 8 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. Angolan center Yanick Moreira (211-91, college: SMU, agency: BeoBasket) responded with 8 points and 5 rebounds. Peristeri GS’s coach Ilias Zouros rotated twelve players in this game, but that didn’t help. Aris moved-up to eleventh place. Peristeri GS at the other side keeps the second position with two games lost. They share it with Promitheas. Aris will play against Rethymno (#13) on the road in the next round. Peristeri GS will have a break next round.
A1 top team – Panathinaikos (9-0) had no problems winning another game on Monday. This time they crushed ninth ranked Iraklis (3-5) in Athens 130-81. The winners were led by Jimmer Fredette who scored that evening 24 points and 4 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Even 24 points and 4 assists by Olivier Hanlan did not help to save the game for Iraklis. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Undefeated Panathinaikos have an impressive nine-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 9-0 record. Iraklis lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the ninth place with five games lost. They share the position with PAOK. Panathinaikos will meet Kolossos HH (#8) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Iraklis will play against Lavrio and hope to secure a win.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 8: Kolossos HH beat Ionikos Nikaias on the road 86-79. Larissa BC lost to Ifestos on its own court 58-63. Rethymno was outscored by PAOK in Thessaloniki 56-78. Promitheas managed to beat Panionios at home 87-76.
The most impressive performance of 8th round was 13 points and 14 rebounds by Octavius Ellis of Promitheas.

Ionikos Nikaias – Kolossos HH 79-86

Even 17 points and 6 rebounds by American guard Jamal Jones (203-93, college: Texas A&M, agency: Network Sports International) did not help to save the game for Ionikos Nikaias. The former international Vasileios Charalampopoulos (205-97) added 20 points (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) for the hosts. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Kolossos HH moved-up to sixth place, which they share with AEK and Ionikos Nikaias. Kolossos HH will meet at home league’s leader Panathinaikos in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
