1947 – Athens and Greek Champion

In 1947, Panathinaikos recorded the first “double” of that era. The “clover” won the local Athens – Piraeus championship with seven wins and just one loss to the Thessaloniki YMCA and totaled 264-211 points. To win the Greek championship title it took Panathinaikos a tie-break game against Sporting BC, with which they were tied to the top of the ranking. In Triton’s home arena, where 1820 tickets were sold but the attendance rose to 3000, Panathinaikos won the game by 37-30 (17-22 during half-time).

The lineup in that final was: G. Nikolaidis 2, Lamprou 13, Dimitrakopoulos 2, Τ. Nikolaidis 11, Pantazopoulos 4, Arvanitis 4.
