UMCOR U18 European Championship: Greece - Turkey 82-67

Another wonderful basket show from Konstantinos Koufos (216-C-89), the talented Greek center succeeded another double-double with 25 points 15 rebounds (his third in three games!) and the Hellenic NT beat the Turkish NT with fifteen point's difference in the decisive third game of the Group B for the European Championship U19, in Madrid.
The Hellenic NT fulfilled this first round games undefeated, showing in reality the young Hellenes mood for the tournament.
In regards to the game which supposed to be the derby of the second group, since the Turks beat quite easy the Israelis and the Bulgarians and already qualified for the next round, the young talented Hellene players were dominant from the early beginning with the usual suspects, the duet Konstantinos Koufos and Nikolaos Pappas (193-G-90) being in a great day and Marios Matalon (188-G-89) and Charalampos Giannopoulos (200-F-89) very aggressive, the Greek team took an early lead in the first quarter and with a 10-27, showed to Turks what is the meaning of total dominance in all the areas, scoring, assisting and rebounding. The Turks tried to change their destiny but both Dogus Balbay (184-G-89) and Ozcan were not enough to beat the Greeks, the two Turks tried really hard and they finish the game with 22 and 17 respectively. Turks were so “traumatized” by their opponents' presentation that couldn't even score from the charity line as they had only 40%.

The points for the Hellenic NT were as follows:
Nikolaos Pappas 16 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals in 28 minutes, Papanikolaou 1, Simeon Ioakeimidis (195-G-89) 8 points and 3 rebounds in 18 minutes, Marios Matalon, 11 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists in 27 minutes, Charalampos Giannopoulos 8 points, 4 rebounds and 3 steals in 28 minutes, Dimitris Arapis (202-F-90) 3 points in less than 2 minutes, Konstantinos Sloukas (187-G-90) 2, Georgios Bogris (210-C-89) 6, Konstantinos Koufos 25 points, 15 rebounds and 3 block shots in 35 minutes!, Zisis Sarikopoulos (212-C-90) 2.

Serbia, Lithuania Latvia and Greece are the only undefeated teams in the UMCOR U18 European Championship.
