Week 18: Keravnos gives some interest to the league after beats AEK 81-72

Keravnos Strovolou with an amazing Ronald Ross, (The American guard scored 15 points, dashed down 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals with just 3 turnovers in 39.51' ) was one of the main reason to succeed this crucial victory over AEK, while the biggest surprise from all came from the Canadian power forward/center Walker who not only scored 13 points in 12.21'' but also he played amazing defense over the Slovenian seven footer Brezec and together with O'Brien let him to score just one point in 23.09' in the court.

The final score was 81-72 and it seems that Keravnos found the strength to come back after a lousy month while is interesting the fact that after the replacement of last season's MVP Thomas Massamba, with Ross, the Strovolos team found some how the psychology and the passion that was missing from the roster in the previous games.
