In a quick turnaround from the trip to Germany and win against FC Bayern Munich, Olympiacos earned its fourth win in a row across all competitions in the last couple of weeks.

The Reds dominating Kolossos H Hotels generated the wide-margin win, 99-64, in Basket League Regular Season Round 6 action Saturday.

Paving the way, Alec Peters set his personal best for the 2022-23 season at 21 points. The former player of the Phoenix Suns made all of his six two-point attempts and tucked in 3/6 from three-point range.

Shaquielle McKissic had 14 points. Moustapha Fall and captain Kostas Papanikolaou threw in 12 points each. Isaiah Canaan was the odd man out with league regulations permitting six foreign players in the lineup.

For the visitors at Peace and Friendship Stadium, TJ Starks scoring 21 points earned a share of the game-high.

The team coached by Giorgos Bartzokas jumped to 6-0 and sent Kolossos to 2-4.

Elsewhere, AEK took down Ionikos, 92-77, and Vassilis Toliopoulos scored 38 points but Aris fell to Peristeri bwin, 92-90. The remaining games of Round 6 will be held on Sunday with Panathinaikos, currently sitting at 3-1, visiting Karditsa Biologiko Xorio. Recovering from a back issue, Marius Grigonis will stay in Athens alongside Dwayne Bacon, not yet registered to play at the domestic level.

Refocusing on the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and aiming to improve the current 6-2 W-L tally, Olympiacos will visit Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv Tuesday and host Alba Berlin Thursday. The Greens will play host to Virtus Segafredo Bologna Wednesday and LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne Friday.
