Father of Josh Childress diesPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports:
Veteran guard Theodoros Papaloukas scored 20 points to lead Olympiakos to an 87-76 victory over archrival Panathinaikos on Sunday.
The win left Olympiakos alone on top of the Greek league standings, the only undefeated team after six rounds.
Olympiakos forward Josh Childress, who played despite his father’s death on Friday, had a double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds and his contribution to the win was decisive. Childress will fly to the United States Monday to attend his father’s funeral. His father died following a car accident he had over a month ago.
