There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in Express L.. Coincidentally all hosts won their games.

The most exciting game of round 21 in the Express L. took place in Thorlakshofn. This derby game ended with only three-point defeat on the road of second-best Snaefell (15-6) to third ranked Thor Thorl (15-6) 95-92 in the game for the second place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Snaefell. Snaefell was trailing by 4 points at halftime but managed to get 3-point lead after three quarters before a 28-22 charge of Thor Thorl, which allowed them to win the game. They made 28-of-37 free shots (75.7 percent) during the game, while Snaefell only scored twelve points from the stripe. 29 personal fouls committed by Snaefell helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was American guard Benjamin Smith (178-87, college: Jacksonville) who scored 24 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). Guard Gudmundur Jonsson (191-84) chipped in 28 points and 7 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was American-Italian forward Ryan Amoroso (205-85, college: San Diego St.) who recorded a double-double by scoring 28 points and 21 rebounds. Thor Thorl moved-up to second place, which they share with defeated Snaefell. Thor Thorl is looking forward to face Skallagrimur (#8) in Borgarnes in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Snaefell will play at home against Njardvik (#6) in Njardvik and is hoping to win this game.
Leader Grindavik delivered the seventeenth victory. This time they beat 10th ranked Fjolnir (5-16) 97-82. The game was dominated by American players. It was a good game for forward Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 14 rebounds. Sammy Zeglinski contributed with 26 points for the winners. Grindavik's coach Sverrir Sverrisson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Christopher Smith (204-82, college: St.Edward's, agency: R.H.Consultancy) answered with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 17 rebounds for Fjolnir. Grindavik have a solid series of three victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 17-4 record. Fjolnir at the other side dropped to the eleventh position with 16 games lost. They share it with KFI. Grindavik will play against Tindastoll (#10) in Sauoarkrokur in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Fjolnir will play at home against Stjarnan and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Njardvik was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Keflavik (13-8) played at the court of sixth ranked Njardvik (12-9). Njardvik managed to secure a 6-point victory 100-94 on Thursday. The game was also dominated by American players. Marcus Van stepped up with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 22 rebounds for the winners. The best for the losing side was Michael Craion with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 17 rebounds and 5 assists. Njardvik have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They maintain sixth place with 12-9 record. Loser Keflavik keeps the fifth position with eight games lost. Njardvik will meet higher ranked Snaefell (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Keflavik will play against IR in Reykjavik and hope to secure a win.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Reykjavik. Local KR (11-10) outscored 8th ranked Skallagrimur (7-14) 98-78. Martin Hermannsson nailed 22 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists for the winning side. Skallagrimur's coach Palmi Seavarsson rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. KR maintains seventh place with 11-10 record. Skallagrimur lost their third game in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the eighth position with 14 games lost. KR's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked KFI (#12) which should be theoretically another easy game. Skallagrimur will play against the league's second-placed Thor Thorl (#2) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

In the last two games of round 21 Tindastoll was defeated by IR in Reykjavik 80-72. Stjarnan beat KFI at home 97-82.
