Olympiacos wins Ilisiakos for Greek cup quarterfinals

Olympiacos played its first official game in Greece, after two victories for the Intercontinental Cup in Brazil. Ilisiakos have eliminated Agia Paraskevi, Ikaros Chalkidas and Apollon Patras for the Greek Cup.Vassilis Spanoulis missed the last training before the game due to a flu and wasn't included in the 12 players for Olympiacos in this match. Besides Spanoulis, Mavroeidis, Begić, Law and Christodoulou were not available for Olympiacos in this game. For Ilisiakos Chatzis and DJ Stephens were not available, which was a great disadvantage for the team. The game started with a delay since the General Secretary of Sports have not allowed spectators in the pitch, although Ilisiakos has only allowed season card holders to enter. Starting five for Olympiacos were Mantzaris, Perperoglou, Lojeski, Petway and Dunston. Petway scored the first points of Olympiacos in Greece for the new season. Dunston and Petway dominated the court in the first quarter with impressive dunks who contributed to the score (12-33) and the show. Ilisiakos seemed unable to follow the score without Chatzis and Stephens, so Olympiacos' coach gave the chance to young players like Agravanis to play. First half ended with 29-47. Olympiacos tried a lot of young players like Katsivelis and Papapetrou in the third quarter but the difference remained around 20 points. Final score in the game was 54-85 with Olympiacos being the fourth team qualifying in the semifinals of the Greek Cup. Quarters' scores: 12-33, 29-47, 43-62, 54-85
