Aaron Moss
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in D1. Coincidentally all visitors won their games.

D1 top team - Hottur (20-2) had no problems winning another game on Friday. This time they crushed ninth ranked Armann (0-23) in Reykjavik 99-67. The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 7-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 99-67. American guard Aaron Moss (185, college: Cabrini, agency: Duran International) stepped up and scored 15 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners and guard Ragnar Albertsson (190-93) chipped in 24 points. At the losing side forward Brynjar Fridriksson (200-96) responded with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 14 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 have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain first place with 20-2 record. Armann at the other side still closes the standings. Hottur are looking forward to face Valur (#3) in Reykjavik in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Armann will play against Vestri (#6) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Hamar supposed to be also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked Breidablik (15-7) played at the court of 5th ranked Hamar (10-12). Breidablik smashed Hamar 100-78. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Hamar. American guard Tyrone Garland (185-92, college: La Salle) nailed 33 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side and Snorri Vignisson accounted for 14 points. American forward Chris Woods (195-89, college: Pfeiffer) came up with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds for Hamar in the defeat. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Breidablik have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 15-7 record. Hamar at the other side keeps the fifth position with 12 games lost. Breidablik will play against IA (#8) in Akranes in the next round. Hamar will play on the road against the league's second-placed Fjolnir in Reykjavik and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Akranes supposed to be also quite interesting. Third ranked Valur (16-5) played at the court of 8th ranked IA (6-16). Valur smashed IA 98-70 on Thursday. Urald King fired a double-double by scoring 27 points and 19 rebounds for the winners. Valur's coach Agust Bjorgvinsson felt very confident that he used 11 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Derek Shouse produced 22 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists for lost side. Valur maintains third place with 16-5 record having five points less than leader Hottur. Loser IA keeps the eighth position with 16 games lost. Valur will meet at home league's leader Hottur in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. IA will play against Breidablik (#4) in Kopavogur and hope to secure a win.
The game in Selfoss was also worth to mention about. Second ranked Fjolnir (17-5) played at the court of 7th ranked FSU (7-16). Fjolnir defeated FSU 90-80. Fjolnir maintains second place with 17-5 record having just three points less than leader Hottur. FSU lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with 16 games lost. Fjolnir's next round opponent will be Hamar (#5) at home.
