On Sunday, Panathinaikos cruised past Promitheas in Round 17 of the Greek Basket League to achieve a perfect 17-0 record to start the season. The 17 consecutive victories in the Greek Basket League, marks Panathinaikos’ best start to the Greek First division in club history.
Previously, Panathinaikos achieved a 16-0 record during the 2007/08 season but fell away to Aris on matchday 17. This impressive record held until Sunday, when Panathinaikos achieved their 17th win in successive matches to start the Basket League season.
The Trifylli have the ability to become the second team in Greece’s First Division to finish the regular season undefeated. Currently, Olympiacos are the only club to have finished the regular season without tasting defeat, when they did so during the 2010/11 season. However, the Erythrolefki were unable to finish off the job in the playoffs as Panathinaikos celebrated the league title in the Basket League Finals.
