The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets.

The most exciting game of round 24 in the D1 took place in Reykjavik. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of 3rd ranked Valur (15-5) to fifth ranked Hamar (10-11) 98-96 on Sunday evening. The guests trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 24-19 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Hamar forced 24 Valur turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. It was a good game for American forward Chris Woods (195-89, college: Pfeiffer) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 35 points (!!!) and 24 rebounds. Guard Erlendur Stefansson (190-95, college: Black Hills St.) contributed with 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. American forward Urald King (198-90, college: SE Oklahoma) replied with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 17 rebounds and 4 blocks for Valur. Hamar have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fifth position with 10-11 record. Valur at the other side keeps the third place with five games lost. Hamar are looking forward to face higher ranked Breidablik (#4) in Kopavogur in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Valur will play on the road against IA in Akranes and is hoping to win this game.
D1 top team - Hottur (19-2) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed sixth ranked Vestri (8-13) in Egilsstadir 78-54. Worth to mention a quality performance of American guard Aaron Moss (185, college: Cabrini, agency: Duran International) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists and Ragnar Albertsson who added 23 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American forward Yima Chia-Kur (196-86, college: Arkansas St.) with 9 points and 8 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Hottur maintains first position with 19-2 record. Newly promoted Vestri keeps the sixth place with 13 games lost. Hottur will play against bottom-ranked Armann (#9) in Reykjavik in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Vestri will have a break next round.
Bottom-ranked Armann is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 22th consecutive match to eighth ranked IA (6-15) 96-77 on Sunday evening. The winners were led by Derek Shouse who had that evening a double-double by scoring 19 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. IA's coach Jon Thordarson used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 20 points by Magnus Hjalmarsson did not help to save the game for Armann. IA maintains eighth position with 6-15 record. Loser Armann still closes the standings. IA will meet at home higher ranked Valur (#3) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Armann will play against the league's leader Hottur (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

In the last game of round 24 FSU was beaten by Breidablik on the road 54-48.
The most impressive performance of 24th round was 23 points and 9 rebounds by Terrance Motley of FSU.

Breidablik - FSU 54-48

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked Breidablik (14-7) beat 7th ranked FSU (7-15) in Kopavogur 54-48 on Monday. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But FSU won third quarter 9-4. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The winners were led by swingman Snorri Vignisson (193-97) who scored that evening 11 points and 7 rebounds and forward Leifur Arnason (193-80) supported him with 14 points. Even 23 points and 9 rebounds by American forward Terrance Motley (201-91, college: Sam Houston St.) did not help to save the game for FSU. Point guard Ari Gylfason (186-89) added 9 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Breidablik maintains fourth position with 14-7 record. Loser FSU keeps the seventh place with 15 games lost. Breidablik will meet Hamar (#5) on the road in the next round. FSU will play against the league's second-placed Fjolnir and hope to secure a win.

Vestri was ahead by 3 points at the halftime before a 51-24 second half run of Hottur. Worth to mention a quality performance of American guard Aaron Moss (185, college: Cabrini, agency: Duran International) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists and guard Ragnar Albertsson (190-93) who added 23 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Four Hottur players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was American forward Yima Chia-Kur (196-86, college: Arkansas St.) with 9 points and 8 rebounds and point guard Hinrik Gudbjartsson (185-96) scored 10 points and 5 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Hottur maintains first position with 19-2 record.

The game was mostly controlled by IA. Armann managed to win second period 28-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.

The winners were led by American guard Derek Shouse (188-93, college: Mo.-St.Louis) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 19 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists and swingman Bjorn Brynjolfsson (192-82) supported him with 10 points and 9 rebounds. Five IA players scored in double figures. IA's coach Jon Thordarson used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
