1962 – Greek Champion

In 1962 Panathinaikos made a repeat performance of what happened in 1961. The Greens lost the local title (16-6), but took its revenge big time in the Greek Championship. This time four teams tied at the top: Panathinaikos (6-3, 607-554), Iraklis, Triton, and Anatolia; but this time the playoffs took place in Thessaloniki, a fact that did not affect the “Greens” at all. They lost to Anatolia (66-68), defeated Iraklis (71-67) and Triton (79-70) and thus won the title.

The lineup of the championship team: Liamis, Tavoularis, Vassilakopoulos, Katsikidis, Panagiotarakos, Zanos, Makridis, Antoniadis, Mandilaris, Panagiotidis, Papadimitriou, Koukopoulos
