There was a change at the Dominos League leadership position after last games. Round 17 most important game was a defeat of league's leader KR (13-4). They were defeated by sixth ranked Thor AK (9-8) 83-65 on Friday night. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of KR. The game without a history. Thor AK led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Thor AK had a 28-17 advantage in offensive rebounds. American guard George Beamon (193-91, college: Manhattan) stepped up and scored 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners and international center Tryggvi Hlinason (215-97) chipped in 16 points and 12 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Forward Thorir Thorbjarnarsson (196-98) responded with 12 points. KR's coach Finnur Stefansson rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Thor AK moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Thor Thorl. Defending champion KR still keeps top position with four games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Stjarnan who have the same record. KR will play next round against IR trying to make it back to the top of the standings. It will be a derby game for which supporters look forward to, where their team will face at home their local rival from Reykjavik - IR. Thor AK will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Thor Thorl in Thorlakshofn.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Stjarnan as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (KR) loss. Stjarnan defeated 4th placed Thor Thorl at home 86-78. The former international power forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82) nailed a double-double by scoring 20 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 blocks (perfect from the field making all eight shots !!!) for the winning side and Anthony Odunsi accounted for 20 points and 12 rebounds. American guard Tobin Carberry (193-91, college: LIU Post, agency: HMS) came up with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 14 rebounds (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!) for Thor Thorl in the defeat. Stjarnan have a solid series of three victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with KR. Thor Thorl at the other side dropped to the fifth place with eight games lost. They share the position with Thor AK. Thor Thorl will play next round against Thor AK trying to get back on the winning streak. Stjarnan will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Tindastoll at Sauoarkrokur.
Bottom-ranked Snaefell (0-17) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 17th consecutive match to third ranked Tindastoll (12-5) 104-59 on Thursday evening. The best player for the winners was Antonio Hester who had a double-double by scoring 43 points (!!!) and 11 rebounds. Arni Hrafnsson produced 12 points and 7 rebounds for the hosts. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Tindastoll maintains third place with 12-5 record behind leader Stjarnan. Loser Snaefell still closes the standings. Tindastoll will meet at home league's leader Stjarnan in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Snaefell will play against Skallagrimur (#11) in Borgarnes and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Njardvik was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked Grindavik (10-7) played at the court of 7th ranked Njardvik (8-9). Grindavik managed to secure a 8-point victory 87-79. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Njardvik. Lewis Clinch orchestrated the victory by scoring 21 points and 8 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Grindavik have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 10-7 record. Njardvik at the other side keeps the seventh position with nine games lost. Grindavik's next round opponent will be Keflavik (#7) at home.

In the last two games of round 17 Haukar was destroyed by IR on the opponent's court 91-69. Keflavik managed to outperform Skallagrimur in a home game 93-80.

Keflavik - Skallagrimur 93-80

Rather predictable result when eighth ranked Keflavik (8-9) defeated at home 11th ranked Skallagrimur (6-11) 93-80. The game was mostly controlled by Keflavik. Skallagrimur was better in fourth quarter 27-25. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Keflavik players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists.

Guard Arni Hrafnsson (185-98) produced 12 points and 7 rebounds and Swedish forward Andre Michelsson (188-97) added 16 points respectively for the hosts. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Tindastoll maintains third place with 12-5 record behind leader Stjarnan. Loser Snaefell still closes the standings.
