After earning his 200th victory in the competition by downing Virtus on Friday, Ergin Ataman will look to guide Panathinaikos AKTOR Athens (5-4) to a fourth straight win by overcoming Valencia Basket (5-4) which has slipped down the standings after losing three in a row.
Surging Panathinaikos faces suddenly-struggling Valencia
The key figure behind the Greens' success in the double round week was Dinos Mitoglou (17.8 ppg., 6.7 rpg.), whose duel with Valencia forward Semi Ojeleye could prove crucial. The battle in the paint will feature a showdown between two players who know each other very well: Panathinaikos big man Aleksander Balcerowski and visiting center Damien Inglis were teammates last season at Gran Canaria, where they became EuroCup champions together.
