OLYMPIACOS PIRAEUS: FACTS OF THE CHAMPIONS!
May 12, 2013
...Olympiacos has just won its third Euroleague title! Olympiacos won its first Euroleague title in 1997 and did the same last season.
...Olympiacos has successfully defended the Euroleague title! Olimpia Milano (1987, 1988), KK Split (1989, 1990, 1991) and Maccabi Tel Aviv (2004, 2005) were the only teams to win consecutive titles in the Final Four era – but Olympiacos just joined them!
...Vassilis Spanoulis and Stratos Perperoglou have won their third Euroleague title! Both players won it together with Panathinaikos in 2009 and with Olympiacos tonight! Spanoulis lifted the trophy with Olympiacos in 2012 and Perperoglou did it with Panathinaikos in 2011.
...Perperoglou and Giorgi Shermadini have joined a select list of players to win the Euroleague with Olympiacos and Panathinaikos? Shermadini won it with Panathinaikos in 2009. Only three other players won the Euroleague with both teams - Lazaros Papadopoulos, Dimitris Papanikolaou and, of course, Spanoulis.
...as many as 10 Olympiacos players won the Euroleague together last season – and have repeated as Euroleague champion! Spanoulis, Kyle Hines, Georgios Printezis, Kostas Papanikolaou, Pero Antic, Kostas Sloukas, Martynas Gecevicius, Acie Law, Dimitrios Katsivelis and Vangelis Mantzaris won the competition in 2012.
...Pero Antic and Giorgi Shermadini are the only players from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Georgia, respectively, to win the Euroleague title – and are not two-time Euroleague champions!
…Georgios Bartzokas is the first Greek coach to win the Euroleague title! Even when Greek teams combined for 9 Euroleague titles, this is the first-ever win for a Greek coach.
