Craion
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in Express L.. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games.

The most important game in the last round took place in Keflavik between second ranked Thor Thorl (14-6) and fifth ranked Keflavik (13-7) on Thursday night. Thor Thorl was defeated by Keflavik in a tough game on the road 100-106. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Thor Thorl. Keflavik made 27-of-35 free shots (77.1 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. 24 personal fouls committed by Thor Thorl helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Michael Craion (195-89, college: ORU) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 29 points and 15 rebounds and the former international guard Magnus Gunnarsson (186-81) who added 27 points during the contest. American guard Benjamin Smith (178-87, college: Jacksonville) responded with 30 points and 8 assists. Keflavik moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Stjarnan. Thor Thorl at the other side dropped to the third position with six games lost. Keflavik is looking forward to face Njardvik (#6) in Njardvik in the next round. Thor Thorl will play at home against the league's second-placed Snaefell in Stykkisholmur and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Fjolnir managed to get a fifth victory, breaking the eight-game losing streak. This time they won against tenth-ranked IR in Reykjavik 79-70. The winners were led by American Christopher Smith (204-82, college: St.Edward's, agency: R.H.Consultancy) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 22 points and 22 rebounds and Isaac Miles supported him with 12 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Even 21 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists by American guard Eric Palm (188-87, college: McKendree) did not help to save the game for IR. IR's coach Jon Arnar Ingvarsson rotated sixteen players in this game, but that didn't help. Fjolnir (5-15) moved-up to tenth place, which they share with KFI and IR. Fjolnir will play against league's leader Grindavik on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. IR will play against Tindastoll (#9) in Sauoarkrokur and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Express L. top team - Grindavik (16-4) had no problems winning another game on Sunday. This time they crushed tenth ranked KFI (5-15) 112-93. The best player for the winners was Aaron Broussard who scored 25 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Damier Pitts produced 37 points (!!!), 9 rebounds and 5 assists for the hosts. KFI's coach Petur Sigurdsson tested ten players seeing no chance for a win. Defending champion maintains first position with 16-4 record. KFI lost sixth consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the bottom place with 15 games lost. They share the position with IR and Fjolnir. Grindavik will meet at home Fjolnir (#10) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. KFI will play against Stjarnan and hope to secure a win.
The game in Reykjavik was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked Stjarnan (13-7) played at the court of 6th ranked KR (10-10). Stjarnan defeated KR 87-75. Jarrid Frye orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 32 points and 12 rebounds. Stjarnan have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 13-7 record, which they share with Keflavik. KR at the other side dropped to the seventh place with ten games lost. Stjarnan's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked KFI (#12) and are hoping to win another game. KR will play against Skallagrimur (#8) in Borgarnes and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Borgarnes was also quite interesting. Third ranked Snaefell (15-5) played at the court of 8th ranked Skallagrimur (7-13). Snaefell managed to secure a 7-point victory 85-78 on Thursday. Worth to mention a great performance of Ryan Amoroso who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 27 points and 15 rebounds. Snaefell moved-up to second place. Newly promoted Skallagrimur keeps the eighth position with 13 games lost. Snaefell will face Thor Thorl (#3) in Thorlakshofn in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Skallagrimur will play on the road against KR (#7) in Reykjavik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
