But that was another game of his team in Swedish Basketligan which we would like to mention. Sigurdarson, who plays in the Swedish Basketligan. He could not help Sundsvall Dragons (22-4) in their last game on Friday. Despite Sigurdarson's very good performance the league leader Sundsvall Dragons was defeated 81-76 on the road by the league outsider Nassjo (#12). He was the top scorer with 21 points.
