Aaron Moss
The game between Top Four teams took place in Reykjavik. Their biggest opponent host Fjolnir (13-4) lost to first ranked Hottur (15-1) 87-70. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Fjolnir. The game was mostly controlled by Hottur. Fjolnir managed to win fourth quarter 18-10. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. It was a great evening for American guard Aaron Moss (185, college: Cabrini, agency: Duran International) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 31 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists. Guard Ragnar Albertsson (190-93) helped adding 18 points and 7 rebounds. At the losing side American forward Collin Pryor (200-90, college: Northern St., agency: Mansfield and Associates) responded with a double-double by scoring 28 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists (made all of his ten free throws !!!). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Hottur have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. They maintain first place with 15-1 record. Fjolnir at the other side keeps the second position with four games lost. Hottur are looking forward to face FSU (#7) in Selfoss in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Fjolnir will play against Vestri (#6) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Bottom-ranked Armann (0-17) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 17th consecutive match to third ranked Valur (12-3) 109-62. It was an exceptional evening for American forward Urald King (198-90, college: SE Oklahoma) who led the winners and scored 18 points and 9 rebounds. Birgir Petursson accounted for 16 points and 6 rebounds. Forward Brynjar Fridriksson (200-96) came up with 12 points for Armann in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the sixth consecutive win for Valur. They maintain third place with 12-3 record having four points less than leader Hottur. Armann lost their seventeenth game in a row. They still close the standings. Valur will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Armann will play at home against Breidablik (#4) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

In the last two games of round 19 Vestri lost to Breidablik on the opponent's court 78-94. FSU unfortunately lost to IA in a home game 65-70.

Armann - Valur 62-109

Bottom-ranked Armann (0-17) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 17th consecutive match to third ranked Valur (12-3) 109-62. The game without a history. Valur led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to Armann's 42. They outrebounded Armann 40-24 including a 27-14 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was an exceptional evening for American forward Urald King (198-90, college: SE Oklahoma) who led the winners and scored 18 points and 9 rebounds. Center Birgir Petursson (205-86) accounted for 16 points and 6 rebounds for the winning side. Five Valur players scored in double figures. Forward Brynjar Fridriksson (200-96) came up with 12 points and Arnthor Fjalarsson added 10 points respectively for Armann in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the sixth consecutive win for Valur. They maintain third place with 12-3 record having four points less than leader Hottur. Armann lost their seventeenth game in a row. They still close the standings. Valur will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Armann will play at home against Breidablik (#4) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

Breidablik - Vestri 94-78

The game between closely ranked teams ended with 5th ranked Vestri's (6-10) road loss to fourth ranked Breidablik (11-6) 78-94. The game was mostly controlled by Breidablik. Vestri was better in second period 28-27. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Breidablik players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. It was an exceptional evening for forward Egill Vignisson (198-91) who led the winners and scored 18 points and 7 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field). American guard Tyrone Garland (185-92, college: La Salle) accounted for 15 points and 7 assists for the winning side. Four Breidablik players scored in double figures. Point guard Hinrik Gudbjartsson (185-96) came up with 20 points and 5 rebounds and American forward Yima Chia-Kur (196-86, college: Arkansas St.) added 9 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists respectively for Vestri in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Breidablik maintains fourth place with 11-6 record. Newly promoted Vestri keeps the fifth position with ten games lost. They share it with Hamar. Breidablik will play against bottom-ranked Armann (#9) in Reykjavik in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Vestri will play at home against the league's second-placed Fjolnir (#2) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

FSU - IA 65-70

There was a small surprise in Selfoss where eighth ranked IA (5-12) defeated 6th ranked FSU (6-11) 70-65. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 21-13. But FSU won second period 14-12. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when IA won last quarter 20-16. It was an exceptional evening for guard Armann Vilbergsson (190-85) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds. American guard Derek Shouse (188-93, college: Mo.-St.Louis) accounted for 10 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side. Four IA players scored in double figures. American forward Terrance Motley (201-91, college: Sam Houston St.) came up with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 10 rebounds and point guard Ari Gylfason (186-89) added 17 points and 11 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws) respectively for FSU in the defeat. FSU's coach Eloy Doce rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. IA maintains eighth place with 5-12 record. FSU at the other side dropped to the seventh position with 11 games lost. IA will play against higher ranked Hamar (#5) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. FSU will play against the league's leader Hottur having rather not much hope for a victory.
