There were just three rounds played in Regular Season of Express L. and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places. The round was exceptionally exciting as three games ended with a tiny margin. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round.

Express L. round 3 caused change at the leadership position. First defeat of Grindavik (2-1) against eighth ranked Thor Thorl (2-1) 92-83 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Grindavik. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Thor Thorl led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 21-of-27 free shots (77.8 percent) during the game. Thor Thorl looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. It was a good game for American forward Robert Diggs (203-87, college: G.Washington) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 17 rebounds. His fellow American import guard Benjamin Smith (178-87, college: Jacksonville) contributed with 26 points and 9 assists for the winners. American forward Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle, agency: JEMsports) answered with 27 points for Grindavik. Thor Thorl keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 7 other teams including defeated Grindavik. Grindavik will play next round against Njardvik trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Thor Thorl will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked Stjarnan on the road.
The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Fjolnir (2-1) in Reykjavik. Hosts were rolled over by Skallagrimur (2-1) 91-70. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Fjolnir. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 1-1 record before this meeting. American players dominated the game. It was a great evening for guard Carlos Medlock (183-87, college: E.Michigan) who led his team to a victory scoring 29 points and 4 assists. Haminn Quaintance helped adding 20 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 6 steals. The best for the losing side was forward Sylvester Spicer (198-86, college: Rogers St.) with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 10 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Skallagrimur keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 7 other teams including defeated Fjolnir. Skallagrimur will play against IR (#9) in Reykjavik in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Fjolnir will play at home against Tindastoll (#12) in Sauoarkrokur and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Stjarnan (2-1) against seventh ranked Snaefell (2-1) on Thursday night. Visiting Stjarnan was defeated by Snaefell in Stykkisholmur 110-94. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Stjarnan. It was a key game for the top position in the league. It was an exceptional evening for Asim McQueen who led the winners and scored 28 points and 7 rebounds. Justin Shouse came up with 31 points and 8 assists for Stjarnan in the defeat. Snaefell keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 7 other teams including defeated Stjarnan. Snaefell will meet KR (#6) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Stjarnan will play against Thor Thorl (#3) in Thorlakshofn and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very interesting game took place in Keflavik. It ended with only two-point home defeat of bottom-ranked Keflavik (0-3) to sixth ranked KR (2-1) 85-83 on Thursday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. The best player for the winners was Helgi Magnusson who scored 27 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists (perfect behind the arc making all five shots). KR keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 7 other teams. Keflavik at the other side still closes the standings with three games lost. KR's next round opponent will be Snaefell (#4) in Stykkisholmur. Keflavik will play on the road against KFI (#8) in Reykjavik and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Important game to mention about took place in Njardvik. Tenth ranked IR (1-2) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 8th ranked Njardvik (1-2) 82-80 in the fight for the ninth place. American players dominated also this game. It was a good game for A.J. Williams who led his team to a victory with 4 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists. Njardvik's coach Einar Johannson rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. IR left bottom position moving up to ninth place, which they share with defeated Njardvik. IR will face league's leader Skallagrimur in Borgarnes in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

In the last game of round 3 KFI beat Tindastoll on the road 86-83.
The most impressive performance of 3rd round was 30 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists by Darrel Lewis of Keflavik.
