Hlynur Baeringsson
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82, currently plays in Sweden).

Sundsvall Dragons (10-2) is placed first in the Basketligan. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. Baeringsson is ranked second on the list of the best rebounders in the league with 9.7rpg. He also averaged so far 14.5ppg, 3.4apg, 2FGP: 57.0%(53-93), 3FGP: 36.4% and FT: 79.3% in the 12 games he played so far. Baeringsson is currently a member of the Icelandic senior national team.
