The most important game in the last round took place in Borgarnes between third ranked Skallagrimur (3-2) and fifth ranked Grindavik (4-2) on Thursday night. Skallagrimur was defeated by Grindavik in a tough game at home 86-93. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Skallagrimur. The guests trailed by 7 points after three quarters before their 30-16 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Grindavik dominated down low during the game scoring 66 of its points in the paint compared to Skallagrimur's 44. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. It was a good game for American point guard Sammy Zeglinski (182-88, college: Virginia) who led his team to a victory with a triple-double by scoring 25 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. The other American import forward Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle) contributed with 23 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. American forward Haminn Quaintance (201-85, college: Kent St., agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) replied with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists for Skallagrimur. Defending champion moved-up to third place. Newly promoted Skallagrimur dropped to the fourth position with two games lost. They share it with KR and Thor Thorl. Grindavik are looking forward to face league's second-placed Stjarnan at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Skallagrimur will play against Keflavik and is hoping to win this game.
An interesting game for Snaefell (5-1) which played road game in Reykjavik against 4th ranked Fjolnir (3-3). First ranked Snaefell managed to get a 7-point victory 102-95. Forward Jon Olafur Jonsson (199-81) scored 32 points and 5 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Asim McQueen chipped in 25 points and 13 rebounds (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field) during the contest. The best for the losing side was American forward Sylvester Spicer (198-86, college: Rogers St.) with 27 points and 7 rebounds. Snaefell have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 5-1 record, which they share with Stjarnan. Fjolnir at the other side dropped to the seventh place with three games lost. They share the position with Keflavik. Snaefell will play against bottom-ranked Tindastoll (#12) in Sauoarkrokur in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Fjolnir will play on the road against Thor Thorl (#6) in Thorlakshofn and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Tindastoll is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their fifth consecutive match to eighth ranked Keflavik (3-3) 92-84 on Thursday evening. Michael Craion notched a double-double by scoring 21 points and 17 rebounds to lead the effort. Keflavik's coach Sigurour Ingimundarson used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 16 points and 9 rebounds by George Valentine did not help to save the game for Tindastoll. Keflavik have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Fjolnir. Loser Tindastoll still closes the standings with five games lost. Keflavik will meet at home higher ranked Skallagrimur (#5) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Tindastoll will play against the league's leader Snaefell (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
The game between 10th ranked KFI (2-4) and seventh ranked Thor Thorl (3-2) in Reykjavik ended with biggest points difference. Guests from Thorlakshofn outscored KFI 128-84. The best player for the winners was Benjamin Smith who scored 25 points and 6 rebounds. KFI's coach Petur Sigurdsson gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Thor Thorl moved-up to fourth place, which they share with KR and Skallagrimur. KFI lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the ninth position with four games lost. Thor Thorl's next round opponent will be Fjolnir (#8) in Reykjavik. KFI will play on the road against Njardvik in Njardvik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 6 IR was smashed by Stjarnan on the road 89-69. KR won against Njardvik on its own court 87-70.



Stjarnan - IR 89-69
