Urald King
An interesting game for Valur (13-3) which played road game in Kopavogur against 4th placed Breidablik (12-7). Third ranked Valur managed to get a 10-point victory 85-75. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Breidablik. The game was mostly controlled by Valur. Breidablik managed to win second period 27-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Breidablik 53-27 including a 35-19 advantage in defensive rebounds. Valur looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. It was a good game for American forward Urald King (198-90, college: SE Oklahoma) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 12 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field). Guard Benedikt Blondal (188-93) contributed with 16 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. American guard Tyrone Garland (185-92, college: La Salle) answered with 18 points and 6 assists for Breidablik. Valur have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They maintain third place with 13-3 record having six points less than leader Hottur. Breidablik at the other side keeps the fourth position with seven games lost. Valur are looking forward to face league's leader Hottur in Egilsstadir in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Breidablik will have a break next round.
D1 top team - Hottur (17-1) added another victory to their record. This time they beat fifth ranked Hamar (7-11) 104-98. American guard Aaron Moss (185, college: Cabrini, agency: Duran International) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 12 rebounds and 9 assists for the winners and Mirko Virijevic chipped in 36 points (!!!) and 10 rebounds. The best for the losing side was American forward Chris Woods (195-89, college: Pfeiffer) with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 18 rebounds. The victory was the eleventh consecutive win for Hottur. They maintain first place with 17-1 record. Hamar at the other side keeps the fifth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Vestri. Hottur will play against Valur (#3) in Reykjavik in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Hamar will play against Vestri and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Armann 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 19th consecutive match to second ranked Fjolnir (15-4) 123-73 on Sunday evening. Marques Oliver nailed 29 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals (on 13-of-17 shooting from the field) for the winning side. Grimkelli Sigurthorsson 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. Fjolnir maintains second place with 15-4 record having just one point less than leader Hottur. Armann lost their nineteenth game in a row. They still close the standings. Fjolnir's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Reykjavik to the arena Valur.
The game in Selfoss was also worth to mention about. Sixth ranked Vestri (7-11) played at the court of 7th ranked FSU (6-13). Vestri defeated FSU 80-70.

FSU will play against Armann in Reykjavik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
