Prometheus 101-72: An amazing performance and a big win towards the goal of survival

Performing for the role of Yannis Bourousis, Karditsa (101-72) downed a disappointing Prometheus in the thirteenth match of the Stoiximan Basketball League.

On Saturday afternoon (6/1) at the Giannis Porosis Indoor Stadium, there was a clear favorite and an obvious outsider. However, as everything happens in basketball, Karditsa not only defeated Prometheus (101-72) in the 19th round of the Stoiximan Basketball League, but also presented a stunning spectacle to his world.

Nikos Papanikolopoulos' team rose to 3-10 (3-1 at home and 0-9 on the road), taking an important step in their attempt to stay for another year in the top division of Greek basketball.

Tevin Mack was unstoppable in scoring and assisting in all areas, Chach Buchanan and Ray McCallum organised, pressed and put up important points and at the end of forty minutes the crowd adored the champions who would remain at home to welcome Aris.

Prometheus fell to 8-5 (6-1 home, 2-4 away), and Ilias Papatheodorou couldn't believe his team's worst performance of the year. Hunter Hill was the only player who played with tenacity, as the Patriots were aware that a loss could play a major role in their bid for a third- and fourth-place finish in the regular season.

7-11 points from fouls, 38-20 points from putters, 19-3 points from second chances (15-10 offensive rebounds), 19-8 points from upsets, 33-37 points from substitutions, Prometheus is unbeatable.

Rulers: Cymboris, Melapides, Bacalis
