Promitheas Patras enters its fourth 7DAYS EuroCup season with the hope of improving on its performance from the 2021-22 campaign.
2022-23 Games to Watch: Promitheas Patras
Last season Promitheas had the worst record in Group B and failed to make the playoffs. Several additions have been made to the roster and there will be greater expectations placed on Coach Makis Giatras's team in 2022-23. Ahead of the new campaign, here are four fixtures for Promitheas supporters to get excited about.
Round 1: Starting off on the right foot
The opening round of the 2022-23 EuroCup season sees Promitheas travel to take on Dolomiti Energia Trento. Both teams finished bottom of their respective groups last year, so they will be equally determined to start the new campaign with a victory. With plenty of new players on the rosters of Promitheas and Trento, it should make for a fascinating contest at BLM Group Arena.
Round 7: Making experience count
One of the new teams that Promitheas will come up against next season is the London Lions, which will come to Patras on December 6. Promitheas can bank on four years of experience in the EuroCup as one of its advantages. Last season, Promitheas went 3-6 at home, so it will be eager to build on that and turn Dimitris Tofalos Arena into a fortress this season.
Round 11: Exacting revenge
Gran Canaria had the upper hand against Promitheas during their two regular-season meetings last year, winning both games, but Coach Giatras and his team will be hoping to flip the script in 2022-23. The first clash between these two clubs comes in Patras in Round 2, yet this Round 11 fixture is likely to have more on the line. A surprise win for Promitheas against one of the EuroCup preseason favorites would provide a massive boost of confidence heading into the final part of the season.
Round 17: Sending the fans home happy
Promitheas has its last home game of the season in Round 17 when it hosts Paris Basketball at Dimitris Tofalos Arena. Of its four wins last season, three of those came in Patras, so it will be eyeing a victory against a newcomer to try to secure its place in the playoffs. New Promitheas signing D.J. Funderburk will also get a chance to face his former team, as he played for Paris in the last few months of last season.
