Knocked out of the Basketball Champions League playoffs, PAOK signed off with an 103-84 victory over Telekom Baskets Bonn on Tuesday evening at Thessaloniki, Greece. As a result, the visitors finished third in Group C.

Shannon Shorter reserved a 23-point outing and 4/5 threes for Regular Season Gameday 14. Aaron Best followed with 18 points of his own. Branden Frazier went for a team-high 19 points in losing effort.

Interim head coach Chris O’Shea saw his side jump to a nine-point lead to end the first quarter and collapse afterwards. He replaced departing boss Thomas Pach. However, Bonn announced shortly before the match at the PAOK Sports Arena that Will Voigt will take over after signing up to the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.

Also before the game, PAOK accepted Kostas Charalampidis’ resignation. Holding an interim role, Stathis Nerantzakis guided the Greek side to a 5-9 finish in its BCL campaign.
