I'm sure that you've all been anxiously awaiting another update on my favorite European basketball team, Olympiacos.
Unfortunately, the Reds suffered their first loss of the HMBC season (the Greek League) last week at the hands of arch-rival Panathinaikos, a 74-73 heartbreaker. Long Beach's own Mike Batiste (Wilson High and Arizona State, he also almost made the Clippers in camp a couple seasons ago) converted a 3 point play with 13 seconds to go to give Panathinaikos the win. MBFGC had only 2 points.
But on Wednesday night, the Reds bounced back 93-86 in their EuroLeague game with Climamio Bologne (at Land Rover Arena). Henry Domercant scored a season high 29, and MBFGC added 17 and 7 rebounds. MBFGC is shooting over 70% in two EuroLeague games, and Domercant is leading the league in scoring. Former Wave Alex Acker is 14th in scoring.
