Going up to 14-0 in the 2022-23 edition of the Greek top division, Olympiacos took down Aris, 89-75, in Peace and Friendship Stadium Sunday.

Nearing an individual season-high Giannoulis Larentzakis poured 20 points and dished out a career-high ten assists to go with five rebounds, two steals, and one block over 25 minutes. Sasha Vezenkov followed with 18 points. Against his former team, Vassilis Toliopoulos recorded a team-high 15 points for the team based in Thessaloniki.

Head coach Giorgos Bartzokas disputing a call with the referees led to his ejection with 8:07 left in the fourth quarter. Another early exit followed with Alec Peters suffering an apparent foot injury after logging 14 points with safe distance established for the Reds.

Moustapha Fall did not dress for the Basket League Regular Season Round 14 contest. Recently suffering a back injury, Kostas Sloukas was sidelined as well. The Greek floor general is considered day-to-day heading to next week’s two-game schedule for the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague featuring an away game versus Fenerbahce Beko Tuesday and a home game against Anadolu Efes Friday.

Enjoying Yannick Franke producing 30 points, a personal best for the 2022-23 season, PAOK mateco made short work of Lavrio Megabolt, 93-68, earlier Sunday.

On Saturday, second-placed Panathinaikos crushed Ionikos, 102-70. Sitting in third place, AEK edged Peristeri bwin, 68-64.
