Jakob Sigurdarson
Jakob Sigurdarson
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Jakob Sigurdarson (192-82, college: Birm.Southern, currently plays in Sweden). He led Sundsvall Dragons to a victory over the eighth-ranked LF Basket (12-16) 89-83 in the Swedish Basketligan in Friday night's game. Sigurdarson was MVP of the game. He recorded 30 points (!!!), 4 rebounds and 6 assists in 38 minutes on the court. Sundsvall Dragons (25-4) is placed first in the Basketligan. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Sigurdarson's fourth season with the team. Sigurdarson is currently fifth on the list of top scorers with 18.5ppg. He also averaged so far 3.3rpg, 3.0apg, 2FGP: 52.2%, 3FGP: 38.6% and FT: 91.8%(123-134) in the 28 games he played so far.

Baeringsson was the main contributor in a Sundsvall Dragons' victory against the ninth-ranked KFUM Jamtland (7-22) 108-90. He was the best player in that game. Baeringsson recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 10 rebounds. He also added and 3 steals. Sundsvall Dragons (25-4) is placed first in the Basketligan.

He could not help Mitteldeutscher BC (9-14) in their last game. Despite Vilhjalmsson's very good performance Mitteldeutscher BC lost 67-75 on the road to the much higher-ranked (#3) EWE Baskets. He was the top scorer with 21 points in 22 minutes. This year Vilhjalmsson averages: 9.7ppg, 2.3rpg, 2.1apg, 2FGP: 43.8%, 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 76.2% in the 23 games.

Karason recorded 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 31 minutes. Vaerlose BBK (9-10) is placed fifth in the Ligaen. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season.

Haukur Palsson
   #6. Small forward Haukur Palsson (197-92, college: Maryland, currently plays in Spain) was not able to help Assignia Manresa (4-17) in their game against Real Madrid (20-1) in the Spanish ACB.
