Olympiacos crowned back-to-back Greek basketball league champions


Olympiacos Piraeus has been crowned Greek basketball league champion for the second consecutive year, completing the season’s domestic double after winning the Greek Cup title in February.

Olympiacos ended the final series with 3-1 over the arch-rival Panathinaikos Athens.

The champions had a 35-63 lead with 2:46 left in the third quarter in Game 4 of their best-of-five final series on Thursday night when the game was suspended, and never continued, due to fan violence.

Sasha Vezenkov and Alec Peters scored 11 apiece, and Thomas Walkup scored 10 points for Olympiacos, which made 11-of-17 three-pointers in the game.

This is the Reds’ 14th Greek League title, and second consecutive after a Panathinaikos’ run of five straight league titles between 2017 and 2021.
