Siarre Evans
The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Keflavik (19-3) in Hafnarfjordur on Wednesday night. Visitors were defeated by fifth ranked Haukar (10-12) 67-58. The hosts trailed by 1 point after three quarters before their 19-9 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Haukar made 14 blocks. American swingman Siarre Evans (178-88, college: E.Tenn.St.) had a double-double by scoring 21 points, 19 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and forward Maria Sigurdardottir (180-89) chipped in 16 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 blocks during the contest. At the losing side the former international guard Palina Gunnlaugsdottir (168-87) responded with 24 points and 8 rebounds. Haukar maintains fifth position with 10-12 record. Keflavik at the other side still keeps top place with three games lost. Haukar are looking forward to face Njardvik (#6) on the road in the next round. Keflavik will play against Grindavik (#7) and is hoping to win this game.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Reykjavik. 3rd ranked host Valur (13-9) lost to second ranked Snaefell (16-6) 60-46. American forward Kieraah Marlow (178-85) notched a double-double by scoring 14 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 blocks to lead the effort and Hildur Sigurdardottir supported her with 8 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. Even a double-double of 23 points and 15 rebounds by American guard Jaleesa Butler (185-87, college: Georgetown) did not help to save the game for Valur. Valur's coach Agust Bjorgvinsson rotated ten players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Snaefell maintains second position with 16-6 record having just three points less than leader Keflavik. Valur at the other side dropped to the fourth place with nine games lost. Snaefell will play against bottom-ranked Fjolnir (#8) in Reykjavik in the next round where they are favorite.

The game in Reykjavik was also quite interesting. Sixth ranked Njardvik (7-15) played at the court of 8th ranked Fjolnir (3-19). Njardvik managed to secure a 5-point victory 94-89 on Wednesday.

Britney Jones produced a double-double by scoring 52 points (!!!), 18 rebounds and 4 assists for lost side. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Defending champion maintains sixth position with 7-15 record. Fjolnir lost third consecutive game. They stay dead last with 19 lost games. Njardvik will meet at home higher ranked Haukar (#5) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.
