Upper Darby, PA – Imposing and dominant, Jim Armenakis was unstoppable last night as he led his team with 28 points. The victory for the Sixers over the Kings reminded us how good the Sixers can play when their peaking. “ We played as a team tonight, and had really good ball movement. And when that happens, we can play with anyone”, said Armenakis.
From the start, the two teams exchanged buckets through the first half. But Big Jim Armenakis kept getting inside, scoring, and wearing out his defenders. The Kings rotated the coverage on Armenakis, but it mattered not as the buckets continued through the night. At one point the Sixers led by as much as 13 points. But a late run by the Kings was eminent. Veronis and Zonios got them within five with a series of three pointers. It wasn’t enough though, as the Sixers took home the win and advanced in the standings now to third place.
The evenings opened featured the Wolfpack and the Revolution playing one of the slowest paced games I’ve ever seen. The Wolfpack featured good ball movement and spread the scoring through the team. Heck, Evan Karas even scored 7 points for the Pack setting a record for himself coming off the bench. Lou Sarris Grau showed off his point guard skills and gave the other Lou, Louie Karapanagiotidis, many breaks through the evening. He dominated and led all scores in this blowout. The Wolfpack remain in first place and appear to be the team beat. They earned their ninth victory and hold firmly onto first place.
In game three, Danny’s Boys played a shorthanded Hellas. For much of the first half Hellas struggled to keep up, until their fifth showed. Danny’s Boys controlled the boards, and kept a comfortable lead throughout. George Pantzaris continued to find a way to score for his team, but it wasn’t enough. Danny’s Boys took home the win and hold onto second place in the PGBL.
