April 27, 2011
Athens, Greece - Finishing her first professional season overseas, former Tiger standout Mallori Gibson went out with a bang as she helped lead Olympiakos to its first ever Greek Cup championship on Saturday April 16. Olympiakos defeated its archrival AEK, 3-2, in the finals of the Greek Cup to take home the trophy.
Olympiakos had to come back from a 2-1 deficit to put an end to their runner-up string in which the team took home the silver in a series of six finals in league and cup play. After winning the opening set, 25-22, Olympiakos dropped sets two and three to fall behind. Gibson and her team would storm back in the fourth set, 25-18, to force a tie-breaking fifth set before bringing home the championship with a 15-10 win in the final set. Gibson played a large part in the rally as the former Tiger scored eight of Olympiakos points in the final two sets while finishing the match hitting over .600.
