The Regular Season in D1 is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds.

The most exciting game of round 23 in the D1 took place in Reykjavik. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of second-ranked Fjolnir (16-5) to fourth ranked Breidablik (13-7) 88-85 on Friday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Fjolnir. Fjolnir was trailing by 4 points at halftime but managed to get 4-point lead after three quarters before a 25-18 charge of Breidablik, which allowed them to win the game. The best player for the winners was American guard Tyrone Garland (185-92, college: La Salle) who scored 38 points (!!!) and 5 assists. Swingman Snorri Vignisson (193-97) chipped in 10 points and 11 rebounds. Guard Robert Sigurdsson (187-94) produced 35 points (!!!) and 6 assists for the hosts. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Breidablik maintains fourth place with 13-7 record. Fjolnir at the other side keeps the second position with five games lost. Breidablik are looking forward to face FSU (#7) in Selfoss in the next round. Fjolnir will have a break next round.
Bottom-ranked Armann (0-21) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 111-71 loss to fifth ranked Hamar (9-11) in Hamar. Forward Gudjon Gudjonsson (198-95) orchestrated the victory by scoring 18 points and 9 rebounds. Erlendur Stefansson contributed with 21 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Hamar's coach felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Guard Magnus Hjalmarsson (184) answered with 14 points and 6 rebounds for Armann. Hamar maintains fifth place with 9-11 record. Armann at the other side still closes the standings. Hamar will play against higher ranked Valur (#3) in Reykjavik in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Armann will play at home against IA (#8) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Akranes was also quite interesting. Sixth ranked Vestri (8-12) played at the court of 8th ranked IA (5-15). Vestri managed to secure a 9-point victory 76-67 on Friday. It was a great evening for Hinrik Gudbjartsson who led his team to a victory scoring 24 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists. Derek Shouse responded with 20 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals. Newly promoted Vestri maintains sixth place with 8-12 record. IA lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with 15 games lost. Vestri will meet league's leader Hottur in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. IA will play against Armann (#9) in Reykjavik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Selfoss was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Valur (15-4) played at the court of 7th ranked FSU (7-14). Valur managed to secure a 5-point victory 81-76. It was an exceptional evening for Urald King who led the winners and scored 24 points and 8 rebounds. FSU's coach Eloy Doce rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Valur maintains third place with 15-4 record having four points less than leader Hottur. FSU at the other side keeps the seventh position with 14 games lost. Valur's next round opponent will be Hamar (#5) at home. FSU will play against Breidablik in Kopavogur and hope to win that game.

IA - Vestri 67-76

The game in Akranes was also quite interesting. Sixth ranked Vestri (8-12) played at the court of 8th ranked IA (5-15). Vestri managed to secure a 9-point victory 76-67 on Friday. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But IA won third quarter 20-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. It was a great evening for point guard Hinrik Gudbjartsson (185-96) who led his team to a victory scoring 24 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists. Serbian swingman Nebojsa Knezevic (196-87) helped adding 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. American guard Derek Shouse (188-93, college: Mo.-St.Louis) responded with 20 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals and swingman Bjorn Brynjolfsson (192-82) scored 14 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Newly promoted Vestri maintains sixth place with 8-12 record. IA lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with 15 games lost. Vestri will meet league's leader Hottur in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. IA will play against Armann (#9) in Reykjavik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
