Default Riot Brings Greek Basketball Final to Early End

I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere, but I thought it was worth highlighting:

Rival teams Olympiakos and Panathinaikos met in the finals and had the game called with a little over a minute left when angry Olympiakos fans began ripping out seats, hurling plastic bottles and even showering the court with flares. Panathinaikos was then awarded the title with a 76-69 victory. Adding to the dismay is that this is the second consecutive year that violence has broken out when the two teams have met in the playoffs. The start of the game had been delayed 40 minutes because 200 fans without tickets attempted to storm the arena, only to clash with police.
