Zeglinski
The round 17 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

Leader Grindavik delivered the fourteenth win on Thursday night. This time they crushed 8th ranked Skallagrimur (6-11) 107-65. The game without a history. Grindavik led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 18-of-22 free shots (81.8 percent) during the game, while Skallagrimur only scored one point from the stripe. Grindavik forced 19 Skallagrimur turnovers and outrebounded them 51-34 including a 36-23 advantage in defensive rebounds. Grindavik looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists. The best player for the winners was American point guard Sammy Zeglinski (182-88, college: Virginia) who scored 20 points and 7 assists. His fellow American import forward Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle) chipped in 12 points and 13 rebounds. American guard Carlos Medlock (183-87, college: E.Michigan) produced 23 points and 4 assists for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Grindavik (14-3) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place. Skallagrimur lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the eighth position with 11 games lost. Grindavik are looking forward to face Stjarnan (#5) on the road in the next round. Skallagrimur will play against Keflavik and is hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.
The game in Njardvik was also worth to mention about. 5th ranked KR (9-8) played at the court of seventh ranked Njardvik (8-9). Njardvik defeated KR 88-77. American swingman Nigel Moore (195-81, college: Alabama A&M) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points and 8 rebounds. Elvar Fridriksson contributed with 17 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners. Njardvik's coach Einar Johannson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American guard Brandon Richardson (182-88, college: Nebraska) answered with 22 points and 6 rebounds for KR. Njardvik maintains seventh place with 8-9 record. KR at the other side dropped to the sixth position with eight games lost. Njardvik will play against KFI (#9) in the next round. KR's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Reykjavik IR.

Other games of round 17 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Tindastoll was defeated by Keflavik in a road game 93-78. Thor Thorl beat KFI at home 87-79. Fjolnir was destroyed by Snaefell on the opponent's court 108-77. Bottom-ranked IR unfortunately lost to Stjarnan in a home game 88-100.
The best stats of 17th round was 30 points and 7 rebounds by David Jackson of Thor Thorl.


Keflavik - Tindastoll 93-78

There was no surprise when 10th ranked Tindastoll (5-12) was defeated on the road by fourth ranked Keflavik (12-5) 93-78. Tindastoll was tied at the half but could not keep up in last two quarters eventually losing the game. Keflavik made 20-of-25 charity shots (80.0 percent) during the game. Keflavik outrebounded Tindastoll 49-34 including 35 on the defensive glass. They brought some defensive toughness making 8 blocks. The former international guard Darrel Lewis (192-76, college: Lincoln, MO, agency: Two Points) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. American forward Michael Craion (195-89, college: ORU) contributed with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. Four Keflavik players scored in double figures. Keflavik's coach Sigurour Ingimundarson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American forward George Valentine (203, college: Winthrop) answered with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) and the other American import guard Drew Gibson (188-85, college: Wofford) added 14 points and 6 assists in the effort for Tindastoll. The victory was the seventh consecutive win for Keflavik. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Thor Thorl. Tindastoll at the other side dropped to the ninth position with 12 games lost. They share it with KFI.

Thor Thorl - KFI 87-79

No shocking result in a game in Thorlakshofn where third ranked Thor Thorl (12-5) defeated 9th ranked KFI (5-12) 87-79. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 27-14. But KFI won third quarter 21-10. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Thor Thorl made 21-of-24 charity shots (87.5 percent) during the game.

Snaefell - Fjolnir 108-77

Very expected game in Stykkisholmur where 11th ranked Fjolnir (4-13) was rolled over by second ranked Snaefell (13-4) 108-77. The game was mostly controlled by Snaefell. Fjolnir was better in third quarter 25-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Snaefell players were unselfish on offense dishing 31 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Fjolnir's players.

The victory was the fourth consecutive win for Snaefell. They maintain second place with 13-4 record behind leader Grindavik. Fjolnir lost their sixth game in a row.
