The match that took place in the “T. Papadopoulos – Eleftheria”, in a game that was for the 17th round of the1st phase of the OPAP Basket League.

The Famagusta team, continuing the successes of the last time, reached the victory with a score of 93-62, while at half-time they were leading 44-31.

Giorgos Tretiakov (13 points, 3/4 free throws, 2/2 two-pointers, 2/3 three-pointers, 5 rebounds) was the top scorer for the winning team.

A slow-paced game was the general picture during the first part of the game. The two teams had not managed to gain a significant difference at any point and the lead kept changing hands at the beginning.

However, shortly after 8 minutes, Anorthosis led 19-13 and although Skinner had already been charged with three fouls, at the end of the first quarter, Anorthosis led 22-17.

At the beginning of the 2nd quarter, Anorthosis maintained a slight lead, while as in the1st quarter, the pace remained slow. Shortly after 15 minutes, Anorthosis led 35-22, in some periods during which the Famagusta team had dominated in defense and offense.

With a 5-0 run, ETHA closed the gap to 35-27, but then again the guests increased the difference over +10 and by the end of the half, the team from Famagusta led 44-31.

Anorthosis increased the difference to +17 at the beginning of the 3rd quarter, when they led 48-31 and continuing to find more solutions, just before the halfway point of the 3rd part of the game, they opened the difference to +28, when they led 67-39.

From then on, things became more difficult for ATH and then it became even more difficult, when the difference reached +30, always for Anorthosis. Score 71-41.

At the end of the 3rd quarter, Anorthosis led 73-48.

After this development, it was very difficult to change the question of who would be the winner as the difference was quite big.

From the beginning of the 4th quarter, Anorthosis kept the difference at levels above +25 and now, their ally was the timer.

Taking advantage of the fact that they had more solutions than the team of ETHA, shortly after 37′, they led 89-61 and by the end of the game, they reached the victory with a final score of 93-62.
