THE Achille Mitchell he may have been off target (4pt. on 2/12 shooting), but with the 13 rebounds he pulled down in victory of AEK in Patras (61-69) climbed even further in the ranking of rebounders of the Basket League, but also of his team… historically.
The “Union” center had double-digit rebound performance for the sixth time and finishing the game with 13, widened the gap from Goodwin, Davis and Hawkins who follow him with 94. With these, he reached 114 rebounds in 13 games and entered the top 40 foreign rebounder of AEK in the years of the professional Championship. He left behind Mark Carter (101), Blagota Sekulic (105) and Anthony Bouy (111).
If he continues at this pace, given that he is averaging 8.76 rebounds and the season we are in is the 13th, Mitchell can catch up, even through the playoffs, to become the 17th foreigner in AEK history to reach 200+ rebounds in the Basket League.
The Panamanian collected 10 of his 13 defensive rebounds, reaching 78 and also entering the top 40 of AEK’s foreign players in the Basket League. He “caught” in 39th place Mark Carter who wore the “Union” jersey in the 2015-16 season.
At the same time, Vassilis Xanthopoulos made his 64th appearance with AEK in the league, entering the top 30 of the relevant list in the years of the Basket League. To do this he surpassed Angelos Koronios, Spyros Maggounis, Mikael Larsen and Martin Meursep.
Kostas Papadakis had a significant contribution to AEK’s victory with eight points in 6:39 minutes of presence on the floor. At the same time, he reached two career achievements in the Basketball League. He reached 100+ field goals and 50 steals. The AEK guard has 101/128 shots (78.9%).
*With the nine points he had yesterday, Dimitris Flionis surpassed 700 in his 160th appearance in the Basket League.
At the team level, AEK reached the victory although it recorded a double, negative season record in the two points having 9/30. This is the lowest performance of accurate two-point shots, since the previous one was the 10 that Lavrios Megabolt had in the 6th game against Apollon Carna. Peristeri bwin and Apollon Carna had the same performance last year in their games with Aris for the 9th and 26th matchday respectively.
At the same time, the “Union” also set a new negative season record, executing with 30% on two-pointers. The previous one was the 34.28% that Ionikos had in the premiere against Kolossos H Hotels and Karditsa Biologiko Chorio in the 12th game against AEK, both having 12/35.
