    [02] AEK: Defeat in the Finale

    24 Nov 2005 00:05:00

    By Vasilis Kalpinos

    In Vitoria, AEK tried to overcome the situation, but unfortunately could not, since it was defeated by Tau, 77-62, in the 4th day of the Euroleague. AEK was very good in the three ten-minute periods and was nearing the score, but in the fourth ten-minute period broke down and succumbed to the superiority of its opponent. This was the second defeat for AEK, while the third win in the event for the Spanish. The scores of the ten-minute periods: 12-24, 34-37, 57-54, 77-62.

    [03] Olympiacos Put Up a Fight

    23 Nov 2005 22:15:00

    By Stathis Petropoulos

    In Vilnius, Lithuania, Olympiacos surprised Lietuvos Rytas thanks to the good set up of the team by Jonas Kazlauskas, who seemed to know of all the opponents secrets and thus managed to threaten it until the last period. Lietuvos did not manage to escape at any part of the game, while the "red and whites" often were the ones with the lead and control of the game. All this happened up to the third period, which finished 60-59 for Lietuvos. However, the Lithuanians in the fourth period started their offence crescendo, and with four consecutive three-pointers took the lead and stayed there until the end.

    [04] Olympiacos: The Usual

    23 Nov 2005 23:44:00

    By Stathis Petropoulos

    In its favourite time period, the 88th minute, Olympiacos destroyed its last hope of gaining something from this tragic year in Champions League. In the 25, Rivaldos goal, 1-0, lasted up to all the previous good European nights of the "red and whites," which is the last ten minutes. In the 88, Helstad found the constant gap in Olympiacos defence line and took advantage of it tying to 1-1, and gaining one point; sending Rosenborg to the "16" of the UEFA Cup, and leaving Olympiacos indifferent over the last match with Real Madrid. All this happened, three minutes before the tie, when Nikopolidis had blocked a penalty kick by Johnsen, after being fouled by Pantos. This caused Olympiacos to be left with ten players, since that was the second yellow card of the Greek defence player.

    Referee: Paul Allaerts (BEL) Red Cards: 85 Pantos (2nd yellow card) Yellow Cards: Stoltidis, Danni

    ROSENBORG: Espen Johnsen, Dorsin, Riseth, Kvarme, Basma, Strand (27 Helstad), Solli, Skjelbred (10 Winsnes), Storflor, Braaten (63 Odegaard), Frode Johnsen

    OLYMPIACOS: Nikopolidis, Pantos, Bulut, Schurrer, Anatolakis, Toure, Stoltidis, Kafes, Babaginda (71 Okkas), Rivaldo (86 Maric), Danni
