In the final of the fourth tournament in memory of Pavlos Giannakopoulos, EA7 Emporio Armani Milan defeated Panathinaikos OPAP Athens with a final score of 77-64 (18-20, 22-13, 18-20, 19-11).

Brandon Davies had a 16-point performance in the second half alone and 20 points in total to lead Emporio Armani to the second title. The Italian club had previously won the Pavlos Giannakopoulos tournament in 2019.

Panathinaikos had reduced the deficit to just 2 points (53-51) with 3 minutes left in the third quarter after Paris Lee's 3-pointer but it was the closest they could get rest of the match.

Emporio Armani gained a 7-point advantage (40-33) after a solid second quarter and never trailed in the second half.

Nate Wolters was the only Panathinaikos player who ended up with double digits in points as he scored 10.

Besides Davies, Armani had also solid contributions from Billy Baron who had 12 points, and Tomasso Baldasso, who finished the game with 10 points.
