The teams have now bigger motivation at this stage of Regular Season. Every game can be crucial and decide about teams' position at the end of Regular Season. Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

The most exciting game of round 25 in the Express L. took place in Keflavik. This derby game ended with only two-point defeat on the road of their biggest opponent Njardvik (18-7) to first ranked Keflavik (20-5) 68-66 in the game for the first place. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Njardvik. Njardvik was trailing by 2 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 20-17 charge of Keflavik, which allowed them to win the game. They dominated down low during the game scoring 48 of its points in the paint compared to Njardvik's 22. Keflavik forced 25 Njardvik turnovers. Americans were the main players on the court. Guard Eboni Mangum (173-G-87, college: TCU) stepped up and scored 21 points and 9 assists for the winners and forward Jaleesa Butler (183-87, college: Georgetown) chipped in 8 points and 15 rebounds. At the losing side Lele Hardy (178-88, college: Clemson, agency: Merit Sports) responded with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 22 rebounds and 5 assists. Defending champion maintains first place with 20-5 record. Njardvik at the other side keeps the second position with seven games lost. Keflavik are looking forward to face Haukar (#5) in Hafnarfjordur in the next round. Njardvik will play at home against Snaefell in Stykkisholmur and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Reykjavik. Seventh ranked Fjolnir (7-18) saved a 1-point victory at home edging 4th placed KR (12-12) 59-58 on Sunday evening. American guard Britney Jones (170-87, college: UAB) nailed 31 points for the winning side and Jessika Bradley accounted for 11 points, 16 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 blocks. Fjolnir's coach Bragi Magnusson allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game.
