The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with extra overtimes and favorites losing the games.

The game had a very big importance for third-ranked Snaefell as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Snaefell defeated 6th ranked KFI in Stykkisholmur 108-95. The game was mostly controlled by Snaefell. KFI managed to win second period 21-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated down low during the game scoring 80 of its points in the paint compared to KFI's 46. They outrebounded KFI 47-29 including a 35-22 advantage in defensive rebounds. Snaefell looked well-organized offensively handing out 31 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by KFI's players. The best player for the winners was forward Jon Olafur Jonsson (199-81) who had a double-double by scoring 26 points and 17 rebounds. American guard Jay Threatt (180-89, college: Delaware St., agency: Pro One Sports) chipped in 19 points, 7 rebounds and 15 assists. Serbian guard Momcilo Latinovic (198-89, college: N.Mexico Highlands) produced 28 points and 6 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) for the guests. KFI's coach Petur Sigurdsson rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Snaefell have a solid series of three victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Stjarnan. Newly promoted KFI dropped to the eighth place with three games lost. They share the position with Keflavik and IR. KFI will play next round against Thor Thorl trying to get back on the winning streak. Snaefell will try to continue on its current victory against fourth ranked Fjolnir in Reykjavik.

The best stats of 5th round was 27 points and 27 rebounds by Marcus Van of Njardvik.

Keflavik - Fjolnir 91-69

There was an upset when higher ranked Fjolnir (3-2) was crushed on the road by tenth ranked Keflavik (2-3) 91-69 on Thursday. The game without a history. Keflavik led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 66 of its points in the paint compared to Fjolnir's 46. They outrebounded Fjolnir 57-35 including a 23-7 advantage in offensive 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. Keflavik moved-up to eighth place, which they share with KFI and IR. Fjolnir at the other side dropped to the fourth position with two games lost. Keflavik will face bottom-ranked Tindastoll (#12) in Sauoarkrokur in the next round. Fjolnir will play at home against the league's leader Snaefell (#1) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
