Pitino wins first league title in Europe with Panathinaikos

Panathinaikos won its third consecutive and 38th overall league title on Friday, sweeping proud finalist Promitheas Patras with a 111-77 result at the Olympic Sports Hall and a 3-0 score in the best-of-five finals. Having also beaten PAOK in the final in February, the Greens completed yet another domestic double.

Greek basketball descends into farce

The Basket League was thrown into chaos on Wednesday, after the personal threats to a referee at his home by Olympiakos fans led to his withdrawal from the Olympiakos vs Promitheas match, which in turn provoked Panathinaikos's forfeiting of its game with Kymi. The situation will hopefully be addressed at an emergency meeting of the league on Thursday.
