Here is the weekly review of the top performing Icelandic players, who play currently abroad.


Jakob Sigurdarson
Jakob Sigurdarson
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Jakob Sigurdarson (192-82, college: Birm.Southern, currently plays in Sweden). He led Sundsvall Dragons to a victory over the tenth-ranked White Eagles (4-11) 71-66 in the Swedish Basketligan in Friday night's game. Sigurdarson was MVP of the game. He scored 23 points, grabbed 5 boards, dished 4 assists and stole 3 balls in 37 minutes on the court. Sundsvall Dragons (13-2) is placed first in the Basketligan. It was his team's tenth consecutive victory in a row. It's Sigurdarson's fourth season with the team. Sigurdarson belongs to league's top scorers and is ranked #7 with 17.0ppg. He also averaged so far 2.9rpg, 3.1apg, 2FGP: 56.6%(43-76), 3FGP: 43.2% and FT: 92.5%(49-53) in the 14 games he played so far.

Pavel Ermolinskij
   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Pavel Ermolinskij (202-87, agency: I.D.S. Law, currently plays in EuroChallenge), who plays in Sweden. He could not help Norrkoping Dolphins (2-3) in their last game on Tuesday. Despite Ermolinskij's very good performance the third-placed Norrkoping Dolphins was defeated 67-62 on the road by the second-ranked Sodertalje Kings in the group C of EuroChallenge. He recorded a double-double by scoring 15 points and getting 12 rebounds. Ermolinskij also added 6 assists. His team will play only one more game in the EuroChallenge Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This season Ermolinskij averages: 5.8ppg, 5.6rpg, 4.2apg, 1.2spg, 3FGP: 7.1% and FT: 66.7%. He is in the roster of the Icelandic senior national team.

CAI Zaragoza lost 79-94 in Madrid to the leading Real. They ended the series of four consecutive victories. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Stefansson's overall stats are: 8.3ppg, 1.7rpg, 3FGP: 36.7% and FT: 85.7% in the 10 games. He is also a member of the Icelandic senior national team.

Baeringsson is currently second on the league's list of best rebounders. He has very reliable stats this season: 13.5ppg, 9.3rpg and 3.4apg. Baeringsson is also Icelandic national team player.

Hoerdur Vilhjalmsson
Hoerdur Vilhjalmsson
   #5. International point guard Hoerdur Vilhjalmsson (190-88, currently plays in Germany) was the main contributor in a Mitteldeutscher BC's surprising victory against the fourth-ranked Eisbaeren Bremerhaven 89-82 in the German BBL last Sunday. He was the best player in that game. Vilhjalmsson scored 17 points and added 6 assists in 25 minutes. Mitteldeutscher BC Weissenfels (4-8) is placed 16th in the BBL. This year Vilhjalmsson's total stats are: 9.6ppg, 2.0rpg, 2.3apg and 1.2spg in the 12 games. He plays currently for the Icelandic national team.

   #6. Guard Arnar Jonsson (183-83, currently plays in Denmark), who plays in the Danish Ligaen was not able to secure a victory for one of league's weakest teams Aarhus BC (5-9) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite Jonsson's good performance Aarhus BC was defeated in a double overtime (!!!) 104-97 on the opponent's court by the higher-ranked Vaerlose (#5). He scored 13 points, made 7 passes and 4 steals. Jonsson belongs to league's best passers and is ranked #5. He has averaged so far 7.9ppg, 2.7rpg, 5.1apg and 1.5spg. Jonsson is a former international player as he played for the Icelandic senior team six years ago.

Gunnarsson scored 5 points, had 6 rebounds and dished 7 assists. Angers BC 49 was defeated 78-71 at home by the higher-ranked Rueil (#8). It was Angers BC 49's third consecutive loss in a row. But the season just started, so everything may happen. It's Gunnarsson's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 11.9ppg, 2.8rpg and 2.9apg. Gunnarsson plays currently for the Icelandic national team.

Haukur Palsson
Haukur Palsson
   #9. International small forward Haukur Palsson (197-92, college: Maryland, currently plays in Spain) couldn't help Assignia Manresa (1-9) in their game against Gescrap BB (8-2) in the Spanish ACB. He cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. Palsson recorded only 2 points in 8 minutes on the court. Assignia Manresa was badly defeated 83-63 in Bilbao by the second-ranked Gescrap BB. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Palsson has averaged so far 1.8ppg and 1.3rpg in the nine games. He is also in the roster of the Icelandic national team.
