With a convincing 85-57 win over Peristeri, Olympiacos confirmed its dominance in Greek Cup, winning it for the 11th time in history.

Alec Peters, with 26, and Sasha Vezenkov, with 20, led Olympiacos towards the trophy, with the American shooting 8/11 from beyond the arc.

Vezenkov was eventually named the Greek Cup Final 8 MVP. He averaged 19.0 points (on 19-31 shots), 7.6 rebounds, and 4.0 assists in the tournament

Moustapha Fall was the only other player with double digits in Olympiacos with 13.

As for Peters, he was named the MVP of the Final after being out of the rotation in the semifinal against Panathinaikos, due to the limit of six foreigners in the Greek competitions.

Coach George Bartzokas decided to leave him out in the previous game, but he was out with a vengeance in the final, while Tarik Black was forced to rest.

For Peristeri, coached by Olympiacos icon Vasilis Spanoulis, only Dimitris Moraitis was in double figures with 16 points.

Olympiacos took control from the very beginning, taking a 23-7 lead late in the first quarter. The difference expanded to 43-13 in the second period, and it was pretty much obvious where the game is going.

The Giorgios Bartzokas team even had a 39-point surplus in the final period, confirming their dominance in the Greek Cup.
