Broussard
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Grindavik as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Grindavik smashed 11th ranked KFI at home 110-82. The game was mostly controlled by Grindavik. KFI managed to win fourth quarter 19-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Grindavik dominated down low during the game scoring 70 of its points in the paint compared to KFI's 36. They outrebounded KFI 48-29 including 33 on the defensive glass. Grindavik looked well-organized offensively handing out 29 assists. American players dominated the game. It was a good game for forward Aaron Broussard (195-F-90, college: Seattle) who led his team to a victory with 28 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals. point guard Sammy Zeglinski (182-88, college: Virginia) contributed with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists for the winners. Grindavik's coach Sverrir Sverrisson felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. point guard Damier Pitts (177-89, college: Marshall) answered with a double-double by scoring 32 points, 8 rebounds and 10 assists for KFI. Grindavik have a solid series of four victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Snaefell. KFI lost sixth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the eleventh place with seven games lost. KFI will play next round against strong Stjarnan trying to get back on the winning streak. Grindavik will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked Fjolnir in Reykjavik.
Important game to mention about took place in Stjarnan. Sixth ranked KR (5-3) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 3rd placed Stjarnan (6-3) 75-73 on Thursday evening. The former international Helgi Magnusson (195-82, college: Catawba) stepped up and scored 20 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners and Brynjar Bjornsson chipped in 21 points and 4 assists. The best for the losing side was naturalized American guard Justin Shouse (180-81, college: Mercyhurst) with 27 points and 4 assists. KR moved-up to fifth place. Stjarnan at the other side dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. KR will play against Skallagrimur (#8) in Borgarnes in the next round. Stjarnan will play on the road against KFI (#11) in Reykjavik and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Tindastoll's fans can finally celebrate the first win of their team after seven consecutive loses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Njardvik, where they defeated Njardvik (3-6) 86-80 on Thursday. Drew Gibson nailed a double-double by scoring 18 points, 6 rebounds and 11 assists for the winning side. Tindastoll's coach Bardur Eythorsson used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. Marcus Van came up with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 15 rebounds for Njardvik in the defeat. Tindastoll maintains twelfth place with 1-7 record. Loser Njardvik dropped to the ninth position with six games lost. They share it with IR. Tindastoll will meet at home higher ranked IR (#9) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Njardvik will play against Keflavik and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Reykjavik. It ended with only two-point home defeat of 9th ranked IR (3-6) to tenth ranked Fjolnir (4-5) 88-86 on Thursday evening. The best player for the winners was Jon Sverrisson who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds. IR's coach Jon Arnar Ingvarsson tried various players' combinations and tested in total eighteen players in this game, but that didn't help. Fjolnir moved-up to seventh place. IR at the other side keeps the ninth position with six games lost. Fjolnir's next round opponent will be league's leader Grindavik at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. IR will play against Tindastoll (#12) in Sauoarkrokur.

In the last two games of round 9 Keflavik was smashed by Thor Thorl on the road 108-82. Snaefell won against Skallagrimur on its own court 98-81.
The most impressive performance of 9th round was 24 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists by Benjamin Smith of Thor Thorl.

Stjarnan - KR 73-75

Important game to mention about took place in Stjarnan. Sixth ranked KR (5-3) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 3rd placed Stjarnan (6-3) 75-73 on Thursday evening. KR players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. The former international Helgi Magnusson (195-82, college: Catawba) stepped up and scored 20 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners and the former international guard Brynjar Bjornsson (191-88, college: Francis Marion) chipped in 21 points and 4 assists.

Thor Thorl - Keflavik 108-82

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked Thor Thorl (6-2) crushed 6th ranked Keflavik (5-4) in Thorlakshofn 108-82.
