Billy
Baptist
American forward Billy Baptist (196-F-87) had an amazing evening in the last round for Keflavik, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 16.
The 25-year old player had a double-double of 34 points and 14 rebounds, while his team beat Fjolnir (#11, 4-12) 113-101. Keflavik maintains the 4th position in Icelandic Express L.. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Keflavik will need more victories to improve their 11-5 record. In the team's last game Baptist had a remarkable 84.6% from 2-point range. He turned to be Keflavik's top player in his first season with the team. Billy Baptist averages this season 22.8ppg and 11.2rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 27-year old American Marcus Van (201-F/C-85) of Njardvik. Van had a very good evening with a double-double of 17 points and 23 rebounds. Of course Njardvik cruised to a 87-77 relatively comfortable win over slightly higher-ranked Stjarnan (#6, 9-7). Njardvik's 7th position in the standings has not changed. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 7-9 record. Van is a newcomer at Njardvik, but is already one of team's top players.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Christopher Smith (204-PF-82, agency: R.H.Consultancy) of Fjolnir (#11). Smith got into 30-points club by scoring 35 points in the last round. He went also for ten rebounds and four assists. Despite Smith's great performance Fjolnir lost 101-113 to the higher-ranked Keflavik (#4, 11-5). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Fjolnir can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 4-12 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Smith he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Smith has individually a great season in Iceland. After only 4 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 23.0ppg (2nd best) and assists with 2.8apg (7th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Darrell Flake (193-F-80) of Thor Thorl - 25 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
5. Benjamin Smith (178-G-87) of Thor Thorl - 31 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists
6. Sigurdur Thorvaldsson (201-F-80) of Snaefell - 34 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Dandre Williams (177-G-90) of IR - 29 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists
8. Jarrid Frye (194-G/F-85) of Stjarnan - 20 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists
9. Michael Craion (195-F-89) of Keflavik - 20 points, 18 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Aaron Broussard (195-F-90) of Grindavik - 22 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists

The Player of the week is chosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)

Haukur Palsson selected the top Icelandic playing abroad in last week's games - 20 hours ago
We bring you last week's top performances from Icelandic who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level. This week's number one is an international small forward Haukur Palsson (197-92). He could not help SPO Rouen (10-13) in their last game. Despite Palsson's very good performance SPO Rouen was badly defeated 94-78 on the road by the much higher-ranked (#5) ADA Blois.    [read more]

Dominos League Round 3 of Quarter-Finals. KR and Stjarnan reach semifinal stage - 22 hours ago
Tindastoll - Keflavik 107-80 Tindastoll avoided elimination as they cruised past Keflavik at home court. The game was mostly controlled by Tindastoll. Keflavik managed to win fourth quarter 22-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Tindastoll looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists comparing to just 8 passes made by Keflavik's players. The best player for the winners was point guard Bjorgvin Rikhardsson (175-93) who scored 22 points and...   [read more]
