Jarrid Frye
The Regular Season in Express L. is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, derby games and favorites losing the games.

Top ranked Grindavik (14-4) recorded its fourth loss on the court of fifth ranked Stjarnan on Sunday night. Visitors were rolled over by Stjarnan 104-82. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Grindavik. The game without a history. Stjarnan led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 21-of-23 free shots (91.3 percent) during the game. Stjarnan looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Stjarnan made 8 blocks. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was swingman Jarrid Frye (194-85, college: Sacred Heart) who had a double-double by scoring 24 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists. Forward Brian Mills (203-88, college: Mercer, agency: Pro One Sports) chipped in 25 points, 10 rebounds and 5 blocks (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). At the other side the best for losing team was forward Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle) who recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Stjarnan maintains fifth position with 11-7 record. Defending champion Grindavik still keeps top place with four games lost. Stjarnan are looking forward to face Skallagrimur (#8) in Borgarnes in the next round.
