Medlock
After 4 rounds played we can already see who rules in the Express L. and who belongs to weaker ones. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with favorites losing the games, games ending by tiny margin and even winless team recording their first victory.

The game had a very big importance for sixth-ranked Skallagrimur as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Skallagrimur defeated 9th ranked IR in Borgarnes 80-71. IR trailed by 16 points after 3 quarters before a 23-16 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 71-80 at the end of the game. Skallagrimur looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Carlos Medlock (183-G-87, college: E.Michigan) who helped to win the game recording 34 points (!!!) and the other American import forward Haminn Quaintance (201-85, college: Kent St., agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) who added 15 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side the former international forward Hreggvidur Magnusson (198-82) responded with 25 points and 6 rebounds. Skallagrimur have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with 4 other teams. IR at the other side keeps the ninth place with three games lost. They share the position with Keflavik and Njardvik. IR will play next round against strong Grindavik trying to get back on the winning streak. Skallagrimur will try to continue on its current victory against twelfth ranked Tindastoll in Sauoarkrokur.
Very significant was Snaefell's (#3) 41-point road victory against 6th ranked KR 104-63. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of KR. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The winners were led by American guard Jay Threatt (180-89, college: Delaware St., agency: Pro One Sports) who had that evening a triple-double by scoring 18 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and 4 steals and Jon Olafur Jonsson supported him with 27 points and 5 rebounds (perfect from the field making all ten shots !!!). Even 16 points by American forward Danero Thomas (193-86, college: Murray St.) did not help to save the game for KR. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Snaefell (3-1) keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 4 other teams. KR at the other side keeps the sixth place with two games lost. They share the position with KFI and Thor Thorl. Snaefell will play against KFI (#6) in Reykjavik in the next round where they are favorite. KR will play on the road against Thor Thorl in Thorlakshofn and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Keflavik has registered their first victory this season after three consecutive loses. The win is especially important as they defeated much higher ranked KFI (2-2)on the road game in Reykjavik 79-69 on Friday. Michael Craion fired a double-double by scoring 18 points and 17 rebounds for the winners. Momcilo Latinovic produced 25 points for lost side. Keflavik (1-3) left bottom position moving up to ninth place, which they share with Njardvik and IR. Newly promoted KFI dropped to the sixth position with two games lost. They share it with KR and Thor Thorl. Keflavik will meet at home higher ranked Fjolnir (#5) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. KFI will play against Snaefell in Stykkisholmur and hope to secure a win.
Bottom-ranked Tindastoll (0-4) is still winless. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their fourth consecutive match to fourth ranked Fjolnir (3-1) 75-72. It was a very good performance for Arni Ragnarsson who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 7 assists (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Fjolnir keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 4 other teams. Tindastoll at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. Fjolnir's next round opponent will be Keflavik (#10) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Tindastoll will play against the league's leader Skallagrimur in Borgarnes and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Stjarnan was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Thor Thorl (2-2) played at the court of seventh ranked Stjarnan (3-1). Stjarnan defeated Thor Thorl 77-62 on Thursday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Thor Thorl. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Worth to mention a great performance of Fannar Helgason who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 13 rebounds. Stjarnan keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 4 other teams. Loser Thor Thorl dropped to the sixth place with two games lost. Stjarnan will face Njardvik (#11) in Njardvik in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Thor Thorl will play at home against KR (#7) in Reykjavik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 4 Njardvik was destroyed by Grindavik on the opponent's court 107-81.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 24 points and 22 rebounds by Marcus Van of Njardvik.

Skallagrimur - IR 80-71

The game had a very big importance for sixth-ranked Skallagrimur as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Skallagrimur defeated 9th ranked IR in Borgarnes 80-71. IR trailed by 16 points after 3 quarters before a 23-16 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 71-80 at the end of the game. Skallagrimur looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Carlos Medlock (183-87, college: E.Michigan) who helped to win the game recording 34 points (!!!) and the other American import forward Haminn Quaintance (201-85, college: Kent St., agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) who added 15 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side the former international forward Hreggvidur Magnusson (198-82) responded with 25 points and 6 rebounds and American guard Eric Palm (188-87, college: McKendree) scored 20 points (made all of his eight free throws). Skallagrimur have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with 4 other teams. IR at the other side keeps the ninth place with three games lost. They share the position with Keflavik and Njardvik. IR will play next round against strong Grindavik trying to get back on the winning streak. Skallagrimur will try to continue on its current victory against twelfth ranked Tindastoll in Sauoarkrokur.

KFI - Keflavik 69-79

Keflavik has registered their first victory this season after three consecutive loses. The win is especially important as they defeated much higher ranked KFI (2-2)on the road game in Reykjavik 79-69 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by Keflavik. KFI managed to win second period 23-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Keflavik had a 31-18 advantage in offensive rebounds. American forward Michael Craion (195, college: ORU) fired a double-double by scoring 18 points and 17 rebounds for the winners.

Fjolnir - Tindastoll 75-72

Bottom-ranked Tindastoll (0-4) is still winless. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their fourth consecutive match to fourth ranked Fjolnir (3-1) 75-72. Tindastoll was tied at the half but could not keep up in last two quarters eventually losing the game. Fjolnir forced 19 Tindastoll turnovers. It was a very good performance for international Arni Ragnarsson (194-87, college: Al.-Huntsville) who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 7 assists (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). American forward Tomas Tomasson (193-91, college: Newberry) contributed with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners. Four Fjolnir players scored in double figures.

KR - Snaefell 63-104

Very significant was Snaefell's (#3) 41-point road victory against 6th ranked KR 104-63. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of KR. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Snaefell led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Snaefell forced 20 KR turnovers and outrebounded them 40-21 including a 30-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 24 assists.

The former international guard Brynjar Bjornsson (191-88, college: Francis Marion) added 10 points and 4 assists for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.

Stjarnan - Thor Thorl 77-62

The game in Stjarnan was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Thor Thorl (2-2) played at the court of seventh ranked Stjarnan (3-1). Stjarnan defeated Thor Thorl 77-62 on Thursday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Thor Thorl. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game was mostly controlled by Stjarnan. Thor Thorl was better in second period 21-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Stjarnan had a 34-21 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Stjarnan made 7 blocks. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international center Fannar Helgason (202-84) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 13 rebounds and naturalized American guard Justin Shouse (180-81, college: Mercyhurst) who added 10 points, 5 rebounds and 14 assists during the contest.

Grindavik - Njardvik 107-81

Very expected game when 10th ranked Njardvik (1-3) was crushed on the road by fifth ranked Grindavik (3-1) 107-81 on Thursday. The game was mostly controlled by Grindavik. Njardvik was better in fourth quarter 30-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 21-of-24 free shots (87.5 percent) during the game. Grindavik forced 24 Njardvik turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists comparing to just 14 passes made by Njardvik's players. Worth to mention a great performance of American point guard Sammy Zeglinski (182-88, college: Virginia) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 26 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists and the other American import forward Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle, agency: JEMsports) who added 21 points, 8 rebounds, 9 assists and 4 steals during the contest. At the losing side American power forward Marcus Van (201-85, college: Cent.Michigan) responded with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 22 rebounds and swingman Agust Orrason (191-93) scored 11 points and 7 rebounds. Five Grindavik and four Njardvik players scored in double figures. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 4 other teams. Njardvik lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth place with three games lost. Grindavik will face IR (#9) in Reykjavik in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Njardvik will play at home against Stjarnan.
