There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with few extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game between Top Four teams took place in Stykkisholmur. Their biggest opponent host Snaefell (7-3) lost to third ranked Thor Thorl (7-2) 97-92. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The guests trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 4-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 97-92. Thor Thorl made 18-of-20 free shots (90.0 percent) during the game. Strangely Snaefell outrebounded Thor Thorl 39-27 including 26 on the defensive glass. They shot the lights out from three sinking 13 long-distance shots on high 59.1 percentage. Americans were the main players on the court. Forward David Jackson (201-88, college: Penn St.) scored 22 points and 9 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and guard Benjamin Smith (178-87, college: Jacksonville) chipped in 23 points and 7 assists (made all of his eight free throws) during the contest. At the losing side forward Asim McQueen (203-88, college: Tulane, agency: Pro One Sports) responded with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 15 rebounds. Thor Thorl have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place. Snaefell at the other side dropped to the third position with three games lost. They share it with Stjarnan. Thor Thorl are looking forward to face Skallagrimur (#9) in Borgarnes in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Snaefell will play on the road against Njardvik (#7) in Njardvik and is hoping to win this game.
Bottom-ranked Tindastoll managed to get the second consecutive victory. This time they won against ninth-ranked IR in Sauoarkrokur 96-90. And what about a second win in a row after ...seven consecutive loses. American forward George Valentine (203, college: Winthrop) notched a double-double by scoring 26 points and 14 rebounds to lead the effort and Throstur Johannsson supported him with 22 points and 8 assists. Tindastoll's coach Bardur Eythorsson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 26 points, 5 assists and 5 steals by American guard Eric Palm (188-87, college: McKendree) did not help to save the game for IR. Tindastoll (2-7) moved-up to eleventh place. IR at the other side dropped to the tenth position with seven games lost. Tindastoll will play against league's leader Grindavik on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. IR will play against Keflavik (#6) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Express L. top team - Grindavik (8-2) had no problems winning another game on Thursday. This time they crushed seventh ranked Fjolnir (4-6) in Reykjavik 122-85. Americans were the main players on the court also this time. Sammy Zeglinski fired a double-double by scoring 38 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 11 assists for the winners. Sylvester Spicer produced a double-double by scoring 23 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Grindavik have an impressive five-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 8-2 record. Loser Fjolnir keeps the seventh place with six games lost. They share the position with Njardvik. Grindavik will meet at home Tindastoll (#11) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Fjolnir will play against Stjarnan (#4) and hope to secure a win.
Eleventh-ranked KFI (2-8) gave a tough game to fourth ranked Stjarnan (7-3) in Reykjavik. The visitors from Stjarnan managed to secure only six-point victory 107-101. However their fans expected much easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of Justin Shouse who helped to win the game recording 28 points and 4 assists. Stjarnan moved-up to third place, which they share with Snaefell. KFI lost seventh consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the bottom position with eight games lost. Stjarnan's next round opponent will be Fjolnir (#8) in Reykjavik where they are favorite. KFI's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Reykjavik to the arena KR.
Ninth ranked Njardvik won an overtime thriller edging 6th ranked Keflavik by one point 92-91 on Thursday night. The game took place in Keflavik. But the guests from Njardvik were better at the end. Nigel Moore had a double-double by scoring 23 points and 10 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Njardvik (4-6) moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Fjolnir. Loser Keflavik keeps the sixth position with five games lost. Njardvik will face higher ranked Snaefell (#3) in Stykkisholmur in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

In the last game of round 10 KR won against Skallagrimur on the opponent's court 102-90.

At the losing side the former international guard Magnus Gunnarsson (186-81) responded with 25 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists and the former international guard Darrel Lewis (192-76, college: Lincoln, MO, agency: Two Points) produced a double-double by scoring 20 points and 14 rebounds.
