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.
