Urald King
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 5 rounds. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader, extra overtimes, derby games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Hottur (18-2) in Egilsstadir on Monday night. Hosts were defeated by third ranked Valur (14-4) 76-68. The guests were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. American forward Urald King (198-90, college: SE Oklahoma) had a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and guard Sigurdur Sturluson (186-94) chipped in 15 points and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side American guard Aaron Moss (185, college: Cabrini, agency: Duran International) responded with a double-double by scoring 32 points, 20 rebounds, 7 assists and 7 steals. Valur have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 14-4 record having six points less than leader Hottur. Hottur at the other side still keeps top place with two games lost. Valur are looking forward to face FSU (#7) in Selfoss in the next round. Hottur will have a break next round.

Armann - FSU 59-86

Rather expected game in Reykjavik where bottom-ranked Armann (0-20) was crushed by seventh ranked FSU (7-13) 86-59 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by FSU. Armann was better in third quarter 19-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Armann's 36. FSU forced 19 Armann turnovers. American forward Terrance Motley (201-91, college: Sam Houston St.) had a double-double by scoring 19 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and point guard Ari Gylfason (186-89) chipped in 21 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. Four FSU players scored in double figures. At the losing side forward Brynjar Fridriksson (200-96) responded with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 13 rebounds and point guard Daniel Fridriksson (175-95) scored 16 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. FSU maintains seventh position with 7-13 record. Loser Armann still closes the standings. FSU will face higher ranked Valur (#3) in Reykjavik in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Armann will play on the road against Hamar (#5) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Top scorers:
FSU: A.Gylfason 21+6reb+2ast, H.Hreinsson 20+3reb+3ast, T.Motley 19+11reb+4ast, A.Tryggvason 10+6reb, J.Jokull Thrainsson 5+3reb, S.Stefansson 4

Vestri - Hamar 65-111

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both fifth ranked Hamar and 6th ranked Vestri had identical 7-11 record. But Vestri was not able to use a home court advantage and was smashed by the opponent from Hamar 111-65 on Friday night. The game without a history. Hamar led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Vestri's 34. Hamar had a 32-20 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists comparing to just 8 passes made by Vestri's players. Vestri was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. American forward Chris Woods (195-89, college: Pfeiffer) scored 28 points and 8 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and guard Erlendur Stefansson (190-95, college: Black Hills St.) chipped in 31 points during the contest. Four Hamar players scored in double figures. At the losing side guard Nokkvi Hardarson (183-96) responded with 12 points and 7 rebounds and point guard Hinrik Gudbjartsson (185-96) scored 14 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Hamar maintains fifth position with 8-11 record. Newly promoted Vestri keeps the sixth place with 12 games lost. Hamar will face bottom-ranked Armann (#9) in Reykjavik in the next round. Vestri will play on the road against IA in Akranes and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Top scorers:
Hamar: E.Stefansson 31+4reb+2ast, C.Woods 28+8reb+3ast, S.Thorvaldsson 16+6reb+1ast, O.Sigurdarson 16+3reb+1ast, H.Petursson 7+1reb+3ast, O.Olafsson 4+6reb+7ast

Hottur - IA 101-66

Not a big story in a game in Egilsstadir where 8th ranked IA (5-14) was rolled over by first ranked Hottur (18-2) 101-66 on Thursday. The game without a history. Hottur led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Hottur outrebounded IA 50-28 including a 35-22 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by IA's players. American guard Aaron Moss (185, college: Cabrini, agency: Duran International) had a triple-double by scoring 11 points, 10 rebounds, 13 assists and 5 steals to lead the charge for the winners and the former international forward Mirko Virijevic (201-81, college: Freed-Hardeman) chipped in 24 points and 8 rebounds during the contest. Four Hottur players scored in double figures. Hottur's coach Vidar Hafsteinsson felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side American guard Derek Shouse (188-93, college: Mo.-St.Louis) responded with a double-double by scoring 28 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists and 5 steals and point guard Askell Jonsson (188-86) scored 15 points. Hottur maintains first position with 18-2 record. Loser IA keeps the eighth place with 14 games lost. Hottur will have a break next round. IA will play against Vestri (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
