Greeks take on the Spaniards February 21, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Basketball.

The latest round of Euroleague basketball competition pits Greece’s three representatives against Spanish teams in important Top 16 games tonight and tomorrow. Panathinaikos, a top performer in the previous round, hosts Barcelona tonight in an encounter that will produce a clear leader in Group F.

The Greek and Spanish teams began their second-stage quests last week with convincing home wins against Efes Pilsen and Prokom Trefl respectively.

Panathinaikos, the domestic league’s front-runner, goes into tonight’s game having lost at home to challenger and archrival Olympiakos. Also tonight, Aris, an 84-76 loser at home in its second-stage opener against Dynamo Moscow, will be hosted by Unicaja, which beat Benetton Treviso last week, in Group G.

Playing tomorrow, Olympiakos, in a good frame of mind following the weekend win at Panathinaikos which came just days after a win at Partizan Belgrade in the Greek club’s Euroleague second-stage opener, travels again, this time to take on Badalona club DKV Joventut in Group E. The top two teams from all four second-stage groups advance to the quarterfinals.
