THE TAKE

Panionions On Telecoms hopes to spring an upset and knock off Pamesa Valencia. Head coach Nenad Markovic's Panionios made it to Last 32 with a four-game winning streak though it lost its final two contests to finish at 5-5. The Greek team shot an outstanding 59% from inside the arc and a solid 37% from beyond the stripe. And Panionios needed to shoot well because it was the worst rebounding team in the competition, winning the rebound battle just twice and finishing the regular season with a minus-27 rebounding margin. But Markovic does have balance as five guys who have averaged double figures, with shooting guard Giannis Kalampokis leading the way with 14 points per game. Center Giannis Giannoulis averaged 12.6 points and 5.2 rebounds while guard Brad Newley added 12.1 points and 3.5 rebounds. But Panionios also got double-digit scoring from power forward Dusan Sakota (11.3 ppg) and guard Ivan Zoroski (11.9 ppg) while point guard Vasilis Xanthopoulos dished out 3.2 assists per game. Markovic got some big help in the post by signing center Lonny Baxter, who averaged 5.4 points and 3.7 rebounds for Joventut. Baxter's presence will be critical as Panionios looks to improve its rebounding. Pamesa Valencia meanwhile comes into the game with an excellent 8-2 record. Head coach Fotis Katsikaris's Spanish team also struggled on the boards with an overall minus-1 rebounding margin though it did out-rebound Khimki by 11 in its Week 10 victory. But Pamesa was an excellent three-point shooting team (39%) and proved resilient in the clutch, winning four of six games decided by 8 points or less, including three wins by 3 points or less. Katsikaris relies on a trio of leaders - shooting guard Ruben Douglas (14.4 ppg, 2.8 rpg), power forward Dejan Milojevic (12.7 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 2.6 apg), and playmaker Shammond Williams (11.7 ppg, 5.6 apg). Center Stanko Barac chipped in 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks while Katsikaris also got solid performances over the course of the regular season from small forward Mindaugas Timinskas, shooting guard Albert Oliver, center Albert Miralles, small forward Fred House and power forward Victor Claver. This game will likely be decided by one or two guys stepping up and giving more than they usually do.

Ivan Zoroski - PanioniosPanionios On Telecoms defeated Pamesa Valencia 70-59 at the end of an intense opening leg of their ULEB Cup Last 32 series on Tuesday in Athens, Greece. Both teams have reasons to be optimistic: Panionios dominated early with a 20-0 run the bridged the first two periods and led by as many as 19 points, but lost its edge later on. Meanwhile Pamesa struggled, but clawed its way back, leaving it a real chance to get to the Last 16 when it hosts the second leg next Tuesday. Pamesa led in the first few minutes, but Panionios caught fire with a 20-point charge as everyone on the home team seemed to have a hot hand. However Pamesa quickly regrouped and was soon within single figures, though Alexandar Capin made it 38-24 by halftime. The lead would close to 7 in the fourth quarter, but Panionios held on for a respectable advantage heading into the second leg. Ivan Zoroski led Panionios with 15 points, Brad Newley and Yannis Giannoulis added 12 points apiece and Ioannis Kalampokis had 10 for the hosts, who won the battle on the glass 36-27. Shammond Williams scored 18, Ruben Douglas 17 and Fred House 10 for Pamesa in defeat.

Pamesa came out firing and burst in front 2-6 on triples by Williams and Douglas. Veteran center Giannoulis responded for Panionios with consecutive baskets inside and passionate defense. After the hosts surged into the lead at 11-8, Capin and Newley came up big from downtown and Kalampokis added a fadeaway jumper to boost the margin to 19-8. Pamesa needed a timeout after four scoreless minutes, but the momentum did not shift. Instead, Zoroski knocked down a wild triple to beat the first-quarter buzzer with Panionios fully in charge at 24-8. Kalampokis opened the second quarter with a driving basket to which Lonny Baxter added a free throw to cap an impressive 20-0 Panionios run with the scoreboard showing a 27-8 advantage. Pamesa was in disarray until House buried a triple that awakened his teammates. The visitors then fed Ruben Garces in the paint and he obliged with scored 5 points that trimmed the difference to 27-16. Antonas Kavaliauskas answered with a tip-in for Panionios, but House bettered that with a flying layup and free throws to make it 29-20. Pamesa was back in the game, although Panionios upped the ante with another triple by Capin at 36-20. Even when Douglas reloaded his gun for a late corner triple, Panionios held a 38-24 lead at intermission.

Douglas turned it on big way in the second half, as he first dished to House for a triple and then unleashed a three-pointer, allowing Valencia to claw its way back to 42-32. Sweet-shooting Sakota gunned from beyond the arc to reclaim a double-digit lead, yet Panionios was out of rhythm offensively. Moreover, the hosts were unable to control the boards and as a result, Pamesa managed, with Williams as its go-to-guy, to cut the lead to 50-43 with a period left to play. Williams opened the final period in style with a triple, but Kalampokis responded with a gutsy drive and 2 free throws to make it 54-46. Then, Zoroski and Douglas took over, exchanging baskets. Douglas fired in a triple, Zoroski followed with 5 points and Douglas answered back with another three-pointer to cut the deficit to 59-52. However, the hosts did not lose their composure and remained in the driver’s seat. With the clock ticking down and the score at 65-57, Sakota found Newley for a decisive triple that brought the home crowd to its feet. Williams hit a long jumper, as Pamesa was trying now to trim the lead as much as possible, yet a charging foul by Douglas and 2 free throws by Giannoulis allowed Panionios to set the final score at 70-59.

"We knew that Pamesa had a lot of problems and I told my players to stay focused and keep energy and good offensive options for the entire game. We were expecting that Pamesa should return to the game in the second half, but we kept our concentration, despite some turnovers. I think that energy and good attitude made the difference in that game. We feel lucky, because we have a lot of team players. Lavon Kendall is one example, since de didn’t make a shot in 11 minutes, but grabbed seven boards. Now we will go to Valencia, not to protect the 11-point margin, because it should be a suicide. We must try to win there."
KATSIKARIS, FOTIOS
Pamesa Valencia
"This is a bad result for Pamesa Valencia as a consequence of our late start. We didn't have defensive spirit and missed smartness in our reaction. We played better in the second half, but the situation remained difficult. In such an elimination round, where every single point counts, you have to be smart and to fight for every given ball. Panionios is a good team and they also took advantage of the bad shape of our team. We are in a very crucial period, since we have lost six out of our last eight games and we have to work hard and find ourselves."

Panionios On Telecoms
"It was a great win for our club, because Valencia is a very good team. To be honest, I did not expect us to win by such a margin, but we played well tonight. Regarding the second leg in Spain, we should be mentally ready. We have to take advantage of the 11-point difference and realize that this isn't the time for pompous statements. For, we should bear in mind that we don't have to win in order to qualify to the next stage."
