The Reds had already secured first place in the standings and are now focusing on the upcoming EuroLeague Final Four and their semi-final vs. Anadolu Efes Istanbul next Wednesday. 

Sasha Vezenkov scored 16 points for the winners, while Kostas Sloukas racked up a double-double of 11 points and 15 assists. Jordan Floyd put up 21 points for Kolossos and Kenny Williams contributed 17.

Giorgos Bartzokas decided to give Shaquielle McKissic some rest for the second straight game, while making an extensive rotation that included all players on the squad, save Quincy Acy.

The former Maccabi Tel Aviv forward played only in the second half and scored 9 points on 3/3 three-point shooting. 

The Reds got the upper hand early on (26-12) in the first quarter against an opponent who shot poorly from distance (1/13 three-point shots). Kostas Sloukas scored 8 points and dished as many assists in 13 minutes, while the hosts were going 7/15 from the perimeter. 

Κolossos reacted in the third quarter, cutting down the deficit to 13 (48-35), however, Vezenkov and Papanikolaou made sure the team coached by Ilias Kantzouris wouldn't get any closer. 

Olympiacos: Sasha Vezenkov 16 (6/9 FG, 2/2 FT, 7 REB), Kostas Sloukas 11 (6/7 FT, 3 REB, 15 AST, 3 TO), Quincy Acy 9 (3/3 3PT SHOTS), Moustapha Fall 9 (7 REB), Michalis Lountzis 9. 

Kolossos Rhodes: Jordan Floyd 21 (9/15 FG, 4 REB, 5 AST), Kenny Williams 17 (5/13 FG, 5/6 FT, 3 AST, 2 TO), Sean Miller 11, Kim Tillie 10.
