Darshawn
McClellan
The most important game in the last round took place in Reykjavik between second ranked Thor Thorl (11-5) and sixth ranked KR (9-7) on Sunday night. Thor Thorl was defeated by KR in a tough game on the road 83-88. Thor Thorl was trailing by 1 point at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 23-17 charge of KR, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Darshawn McClellan (200-89, college: La-Lafayette) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 14 points and 14 rebounds and the former international guard Brynjar Bjornsson (191-88, college: Francis Marion) who added 19 points and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side American guard Benjamin Smith (178-87, college: Jacksonville) responded with 31 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. KR moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Stjarnan. Thor Thorl at the other side dropped to the third position with five games lost. They share it with Keflavik. KR is looking forward to face Njardvik (#7) in Njardvik in the next round. Thor Thorl will play against KFI (#9) and is hoping to win this game.
Bottom-ranked Tindastoll managed to get the second consecutive victory. This time they won against eighth-ranked Skallagrimur in Borgarnes 77-63. The winners were led by swingman Helgi Viggosson (189-83) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds and George Valentine supported him with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Even 17 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 6 steals by American guard Carlos Medlock (183-87, college: E.Michigan) did not help to save the game for Skallagrimur. Tindastoll (5-11) moved-up to ninth place, which they share with KFI. Newly promoted Skallagrimur keeps the eighth position with ten games lost. Tindastoll will play against higher ranked Keflavik (#4) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Skallagrimur will play against the league's leader Grindavik (#1) having rather not much hope for a victory.
Express L. top team - Grindavik (13-3) had no problems winning another game on Monday. This time they crushed twelfth ranked IR (4-12) 102-80. Aaron Broussard fired a double-double by scoring 22 points, 11 rebounds and 6 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. Dandre Williams produced 29 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals for lost side. Grindavik have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 13-3 record. Loser IR stay at the bottom place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Fjolnir. Grindavik will meet at home Skallagrimur (#8) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. IR will play against Stjarnan (#6) and hope to secure a win.
Ninth-ranked KFI (5-11) gave a tough game to third ranked Snaefell (12-4). The visitors from Stykkisholmur managed to secure only four-point victory 110-106. However their fans expected much easier game. It was a very good performance for Sigurdur Thorvaldsson who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!) and 12 rebounds. Snaefell have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place. Newly promoted KFI keeps the ninth position with 11 games lost. Snaefell's next round opponent will be Fjolnir (#11) in Reykjavik and are hoping to win another game. KFI will play on the road against Thor Thorl in Thorlakshofn.

In the last two games of round 16 Njardvik won against Stjarnan on the opponent's court 87-77. Fjolnir unfortunately lost to Keflavik in a home game 101-113.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 34 points (!!!) and 14 rebounds by Billy Baptist of Keflavik.

They outrebounded Stjarnan 49-36 including 17 on the offensive glass. 26 personal fouls committed by Stjarnan helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a very good performance for American power forward Marcus Van (201-85, college: Cent.Michigan) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 23 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). point guard Elvar Fridriksson (180-94) contributed with 26 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Njardvik's coach Einar Johannson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American swingman Jarrid Frye (194-85, college: Sacred Heart) replied with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 11 rebounds and naturalized American guard Justin Shouse (180-81, college: Mercyhurst) added 20 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists in the effort for Stjarnan. Five Njardvik and four Stjarnan players scored in double figures. Njardvik maintains seventh position with 7-9 record. Stjarnan lost fourth consecutive game.
