Pavel
Ermolinskij
An interesting game for KR (13-3) which played road game in Thorlakshofn against 4th ranked Thor Thorl (9-7). First ranked KR managed to get a 4-point victory 95-91. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Thor Thorl. The guests trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 29-23 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international guard Pavel Ermolinskij (202-87) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 18 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. The former international guard Jon Stefansson (192-82) contributed with 21 points and 6 assists for the winners. American guard Tobin Carberry (193-91, college: LIU Post, agency: HMS) replied with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists for Thor Thorl. KR have an impressive five-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 13-3 record. Thor Thorl at the other side keeps the fourth place with seven games lost. They share the position with Grindavik. KR are looking forward to face Thor AK (#6) in Akureyri in the next round where they are favorite. Thor Thorl will play on the road against the league's second-placed Stjarnan and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Snaefell is still unable to win any game. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their 16th consecutive match to second ranked Stjarnan (12-4) 101-77. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international power forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 blocks and Arnthor Gudmundsson who added 25 points during the contest. At the losing side guard Arni Hrafnsson (185-98) responded with 24 points and 4 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 second position with 12-4 record behind leader KR. Snaefell at the other side still closes the standings. Stjarnan will play against Thor Thorl (#4) in Thorlakshofn in the next round. Snaefell will play at home against Tindastoll (#3) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Thor AK (8-8) and Haukar (6-10), which took place in Hafnarfjordur. Higher ranked Thor AK lost to eleventh ranked Haukar in a road game 72-79 on Friday. The winners were led by Sherrod Wright who had that evening a double-double by scoring 42 points (!!!) and 12 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws). Even 22 points and 8 rebounds by George Beamon did not help to save the game for Thor AK. Haukar moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Skallagrimur. Newly promoted Thor AK keeps the sixth position with eight games lost. They share it with Njardvik. Haukar will meet higher ranked IR (#9) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Thor AK will play against the league's leader KR having rather not much hope for a victory.

Other games in round 16 were not that significant. Njardvik beat Skallagrimur on the road 100-91. Tindastoll won against Keflavik on its own court 86-77. IR unfortunately lost to Grindavik in a road game 79-94.

Thor Thorl - KR 91-95

An interesting game for KR (13-3) which played road game in Thorlakshofn against 4th ranked Thor Thorl (9-7). First ranked KR managed to get a 4-point victory 95-91. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Thor Thorl. The guests trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 29-23 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international guard Pavel Ermolinskij (202-87) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 18 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. The former international guard Jon Stefansson (192-82) contributed with 21 points and 6 assists for the winners. American guard Tobin Carberry (193-91, college: LIU Post, agency: HMS) replied with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists and naturalized Polish Maciej Baginski (195-95) added 19 points and 6 rebounds in the effort for Thor Thorl. Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. KR have an impressive five-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 13-3 record. Thor Thorl at the other side keeps the fourth place with seven games lost. They share the position with Grindavik. KR are looking forward to face Thor AK (#6) in Akureyri in the next round where they are favorite.

Haukar - Thor AK 79-72

Higher ranked Thor AK lost to eleventh ranked Haukar in a road game 72-79 on Friday. Haukar forced 19 Thor AK turnovers. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Haukar made 14 blocks. The winners were led by American guard Sherrod Wright (193-91, college: George Mason) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 42 points (!!!) and 12 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws) and guard Emil Barja (192-91) supported him with 7 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Even 22 points and 8 rebounds by American guard George Beamon (193-91, college: Manhattan) did not help to save the game for Thor AK.

Haukar moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Skallagrimur. Newly promoted Thor AK keeps the sixth position with eight games lost. They share it with Njardvik.

Skallagrimur - Njardvik 91-100

The game between closely ranked teams ended with ninth ranked Njardvik's (8-8) road victory over 10th ranked Skallagrimur (6-10) in Borgarnes 100-91 on Thursday. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Skallagrimur won fourth quarter 25-24. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Njardvik made 29-of-33 free shots (87.9 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 31 assists. The winners were led by American forward Jeremy Atkinson (193-90, college: NC-Asheville) who scored that evening 34 points (!!!), 9 rebounds and 4 assists and the former international swingman Johann Olafsson (193-86) supported him with 14 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. Even a double-double of 32 points, 21 rebounds and 5 assists by American forward Flenard Whitfield (200-90, college: W.Michigan) did not help to save the game for Skallagrimur. Swingman Eyjolfur Halldorsson (194-98) added 22 points and 9 rebounds for lost side. Five Njardvik and four Skallagrimur players scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Njardvik have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Thor AK. Skallagrimur lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the tenth position with ten games lost. They share it with Haukar.

Stjarnan - Snaefell 101-77

Bottom-ranked Snaefell is still unable to win any game. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their 16th consecutive match to second ranked Stjarnan (12-4) 101-77. The game was mostly controlled by Stjarnan. Snaefell was better in third quarter 24-23. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Snaefell 56-36 including a 22-9 advantage in offensive rebounds. Stjarnan players were unselfish on offense dishing 32 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Snaefell's players. They brought some defensive toughness making 9 blocks. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international power forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 blocks and guard Arnthor Gudmundsson (187-91, agency: Dynamics Global Management) who added 25 points during the contest. Gudmundsson is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Five Stjarnan players scored in double figures. At the losing side guard Arni Hrafnsson (185-98) responded with 24 points and 4 assists and American guard Christian Covile (193-93, college: Adrian) produced a double-double by scoring 15 points and 11 rebounds. 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 second position with 12-4 record behind leader KR. Snaefell at the other side still closes the standings. Stjarnan will play against Thor Thorl (#4) in Thorlakshofn in the next round. Snaefell will play at home against Tindastoll (#3) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Top scorers:
Stjarnan: A.Gudmundsson 25+4reb+2ast, A.Odunsi 18+8reb+4ast, M.Valdimarsson 17+5reb+2ast, H.Baeringsson 16+14reb+6ast, T.Hilmarsson 16+7reb+3ast, E.Aevarsson 7+6reb+5ast

Tindastoll - Keflavik 86-77

Very expected game when 7th ranked Keflavik (7-9) lost to third ranked Tindastoll (11-5) in Sauoarkrokur 77-86 on Thursday. The hosts trailed by 3 points at the halftime before their 43-31 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. The winners were led by American forward Antonio Hester (198-90, college: Mobile, AL) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) and point guard Bjorgvin Rikhardsson (175-93) supported him with 17 points. Hester is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top summer league for players who want to play basketball overseas. Even 20 points and 8 rebounds by American forward Amin Stevens (203-90, college: Florida A&M) did not help to save the game for Keflavik. The former international guard Hordur Vilhjalmsson (194-88) added 14 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists for lost side. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Tindastoll maintains third position with 11-5 record having just two points less than leader KR. Loser Keflavik dropped to the eighth place with nine games lost. They share the position with IR. Tindastoll will meet bottom-ranked Snaefell (#12) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Keflavik will play against Skallagrimur (#11) and hope to secure a win.

gschID: 491960


Grindavik - IR 94-79

Rather predictable result when sixth ranked Grindavik (9-7) won against at home 8th ranked IR (7-9) 94-79 on Thursday. The game was mostly controlled by Grindavik. IR managed to win third quarter 24-22. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 19-of-19 free shots (100 percent !!!) during the game. The winners were led by guard Dagur Jonsson (185-95, college: St.Francis, NY) who scored that evening 24 points and 6 rebounds and the former international guard Olafur Olafsson (194-90) supported him with 18 points and 9 rebounds. Grindavik's coach Johann Olafsson used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 22 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists by point guard Matthias Sigurdarson (180-94, college: Columbus St.) did not help to save the game for IR. American forward Danero Thomas (196-86, college: Murray St.) added 18 points for lost side. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Grindavik moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Thor Thorl. Loser IR keeps the eighth position with nine games lost. They share it with Keflavik. Grindavik will meet Njardvik (#7) in the next round. IR will play against Haukar and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
