Olafsson
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in Dominos League.

The most exciting game of round 21 in the Dominos League took place in Sauoarkrokur. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of second-best Tindastoll (15-6) to fourth ranked Grindavik (12-9) 101-98 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Tindastoll. The guests trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 31-23 charge, which allowed them to win the game. The best player for the winners was the former international guard Olafur Olafsson (194-90) who scored 33 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds. Guard Dagur Jonsson (185-95, college: St.Francis, NY) chipped in 31 points. At the other side the best for losing team was American forward Antonio Hester (198-90, college: Mobile, AL) who recorded 29 points and 9 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Grindavik maintains fourth place with 12-9 record. Tindastoll at the other side keeps the second position with six games lost. They share it with Stjarnan. Grindavik are looking forward to face Skallagrimur (#11) in Borgarnes in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Tindastoll will play on the road against Haukar (#10) in Hafnarfjordur and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Stjarnan (15-6) against tenth ranked Haukar (8-13) on Sunday night. Host Stjarnan was defeated by Haukar in a tough game in Stjarnan 78-87. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Stjarnan. It was a good game for American guard Sherrod Wright (193-91, college: George Mason) who led his team to a victory with 19 points and 5 rebounds (went 11 for 11 at the free throw line !!!). Haukur Oskarsson contributed with 19 points for the winners. Swingman Tomas Tomasson (192-91, college: Newberry) answered with 19 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists for Stjarnan. Haukar maintains tenth place with 8-13 record. Stjarnan at the other side dropped to the second position with six games lost. They share it with Tindastoll. Haukar will play against league's second-placed Tindastoll in Sauoarkrokur in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Stjarnan will play on the road against the league's leader KR where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Leader KR delivered the seventeenth victory on Sunday night. This time they crushed bottom-ranked Snaefell (0-21) 87-67 in Stykkisholmur. Pavel Ermolinskij stepped up with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners. The best for the losing side was Christian Covile with a double-double by scoring 26 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. KR have a solid series of four victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 17-4 record. Loser Snaefell still closes the standings. KR will meet at home Stjarnan (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Snaefell will play against Thor AK (#8) in Akureyri and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Keflavik. Local Keflavik (11-10) outscored 8th ranked Thor AK (10-11) 97-77.

Keflavik's next round opponent will be IR (#7) in Reykjavik. Thor AK will play at home against Snaefell and hope to win that game.

In the last two games of round 21 IR was defeated by Njardvik in Njardvik 79-72. Skallagrimur was beaten by Thor Thorl at home 86-95.
