Hlynur Baeringsson
Hlynur Baeringsson
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82, currently plays in Sweden). He led Sundsvall Dragons to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Boras Basket (11-5) crushing them 127-104 in the Swedish Basketligan in Friday night's game. Baeringsson had a double-double by scoring 25 points and getting 13 rebounds. He also added 5 assists in 37 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Sundsvall Dragons (14-2) is placed first in the Basketligan. It was his team's 11th consecutive victory in a row. Baeringsson is currently second on the list of best rebounders with 9.5rpg. He also averaged so far 14.2ppg, 3.5apg, 2FGP: 56.5%(70-124), 3FGP: 37.9% and FT: 73.7% in the 16 games he played so far. Baeringsson is currently a member of the Icelandic senior national team.

Sigurdarson led Sundsvall Dragons to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Boras Basket (11-5) crushing them 127-104. He recorded 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. It's Sigurdarson's fourth season with the team. Sigurdarson is currently sixth on the league's list of top scorers. He has individually a very good season with high stats.

It was Angers BC 49's fourth consecutive loss in a row. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Gunnarsson has relatively solid stats: 11.8ppg, 2.8rpg and 2.7apg in the 11 games. He is also Icelandic national team player.
