Charron
Fisher

The best of five, finals of the Cyprus OPAP Men's competition started tonight with Petrolina AEK Larnakas adding its first victory in the series after beating the team of CytaVision Apoel with 78-70 in another thrilling game with Charron Fisher (193-G/F-85, college: Niagara) being the man of the match and the MVP of this first final after scoring 31 points against the team that brought hi for the first time in his career, in the Cyprus league.
The game was a derby from the very beginning with the visiting site of Coach Konstantinidis leading the score at the beginning with +6, (7-13) at the first 5.17' minutes, but after the comeback of the home team mainly with the duet Charron Fisher and Mihalis Kakiouzis (206-F-76, agency: Interperformances), the Larnaka team succeeded a solid 13-7 to end the first half with 20-17 and having the American forward already scoring half the points of his team (9 points) and Mihalis Kakiouzis (6 points)

The second half was the worst for the home team and the best for the visitors. Apoel with an offensive crescent after the first four minutes of the game (25-21) succeeded not only to take the lead with Wells, 5.06' to the end of the first half but also to increase it with the bosman center Ales Chan (216-C-80, college: Seton Hill) (scoring his 10th point) with 29-33, 3.11' before the end by doing a 4-12 series. Wells, Stiggers and Porter Troupe (196-G-83, college: Portland) were very good from behind the arc and surprised their opponents after a new series in the last two minutes with 4-8 to end up the first half with 33-41 and making Coach Papadopoulos and his team very sceptical for the continuation as Apoel had more passion and the player of Konstantinidis were better from the parameter.

The third period begun with Apoel being more focused and Kremen's four consecutive points gave a +12 to Apoel, 36-48, and 8.15' to the end. Coach Papadopoulos tried to balance the game and with three changes in his roster tried to change the momentum which was in favor of the visiting site. The next two minutes were "dead" as both teams were not able to score at all. Charron Fisher though broke this silence with 5 personal points to cut the deficit to -7, but Davis scored both the shots from the charity line. Charron Fisher was there for AEK, and with another 5 points cut the deficit -5, (47-52), the American forward had already reached the 29 points for his team in less than 23 minutes. The American small forward, Porter Troupe, was also very hot and with a new three pointer increase the deficit for his team. Panteli and Mihalis Kakiouzis at the end cut the deficit to 53-56, which was the score of the third period.


The thrilling game continued in the fourth period too, with Mihalis Kakiouzis being present in the most difficult part for his team with a new three pointer balanced the game to 58-58, 8.41' to the end. Tutt with a goal-foul gave a lead to his team with +3, 61-58, 7.32' to the end, and 63-60, the same player, 25 seconds after, while Subotic who was pointless in the previous minutes scored his first basket to give a +5 to his team (65-60), 6.11' to the end. Mokongo took over for Apoel and with 6 personal points (they could have been 7 but he missed the one of two free throws, cut the deficit to only one point 67-66, 3.37' to the end, With the time going to an end the two teams were fighting for the best, but the home team was more focused at these crucial last minutes and with Tutt increase the deficit once more to +3 but Ales Chan had a different opinion and with both his free throws made, did the score 69-68. The last two thrilling minutes were as follows: Ales Chan blocked Mihalis Kakiouzis but did a turnover, Panteli scored but Ales Chan answered back with another pair of free throws and 58 seconds to the end the game is at the edge with AEK having the ball and the score being 71-70!, Like all the big men in the sport, Mihalis Kakiouzis proved why he can still play the ball and can play it very well, with a three pointer in the nine seconds of the offense increased the deficit in the most crucial part of the game to 74-70, a basket full of psychology and winning spirit, Apoel couldn't cope as the players of Konstantinidis were not calm enough to fight back so first with Mokongo, his shot was blocked by Morrison and then with Kremen missing the three pointer from the edge, Mokongo had to foul Charron Fisher to stop the clock, Charron Fisher's both free throws 31 seconds to the end, gave the victory to AEK as the +6, 76-60 was enough for Apoel's player to quit the game and simply lose another two offenses with Stiggers as both his three pointers were bad. The final score was 78-70 the win is fair but the score was unfair for Apoel. Mihalis Kakiouzis was the man of the last period since his three pointers at the end was the final knock for Apoel.

Top scorers:
AEK: Charron Fisher 31, Mihalis Kakiouzis 17, 6 rebounds, Tutt 11, 6 rebounds and 6 assists, Panteli 9 and 4 assists.
Apoel: Ales Chan 15, Porter Troupe 13 and Mokongo 10, Kremen 9 and 10 rebounds.
