Urald King
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in D1. Coincidentally all hosts won their games.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Hottur (20-3) in Reykjavik on Sunday night. Visitors were rolled over by third ranked Valur (17-5) 118-84. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Hottur. The game without a history. Valur led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They outrebounded Hottur 49-23 including a 19-8 advantage in offensive rebounds. Valur looked well-organized offensively handing out 33 assists comparing to just 17 passes made by Hottur's players. American forward Urald King (198-90, college: SE Oklahoma) had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 15 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and naturalized American guard Austin Bracey (190-90) chipped in 22 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists during the contest. American guard Aaron Moss (185, college: Cabrini, agency: Duran International) responded with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Valur maintains third position with 17-5 record having four points less than leader Hottur. Hottur at the other side still keeps top place with three games lost. Valur are looking forward to face Vestri (#6) in the next round. Hottur will play against Breidablik (#4) and is hoping to win this game.
Armann has finally registered their first victory this season after 23 consecutive losses. They used home court advantage to defeat Vestri (8-14) 80-77. Guard Magnus Hjalmarsson (184) notched 17 points to lead the effort and Thorsteinn Hjorleifsson supported him with 10 points. Even 27 points and 7 rebounds by Serbian swingman Nebojsa Knezevic (196-87) did not help to save the game for Vestri. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Armann maintains ninth position with 1-23 record. Newly promoted Vestri keeps the sixth place with 14 games lost. Armann will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Vestri will play at home against Valur (#3) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

In the last two games of round 26 Hamar lost to Fjolnir on the opponent's court 91-104. Breidablik managed to outperform IA in a home game 82-74.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 25 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks by Marques Oliver of Fjolnir.

Fjolnir - Hamar 104-91

Rather expected game in Reykjavik where 5th ranked Hamar (10-13) was defeated by third ranked Fjolnir (18-5) 104-91. Hamar was ahead by 1 point at the halftime before a 52-38 second half run of Fjolnir. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 26 assists. American Marques Oliver (201-91, college: Delaware St.) notched a double-double by scoring 25 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks to lead the effort and guard Robert Sigurdsson (187-94) supported him with 21 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Four Fjolnir players scored in double figures. Fjolnir's coach Hjalti Vilhjalmsson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even a double-double of 31 points and 14 rebounds by American forward Chris Woods (195-89, college: Pfeiffer) did not help to save the game for Hamar. Guard Erlendur Stefansson (190-95, college: Black Hills St.) added 25 points for the guests. Fjolnir moved-up to second place. Hamar at the other side keeps the fifth position with 13 games lost. Fjolnir will play against IA (#8) in Akranes in the next round where they are favorite. Hamar will play at home against FSU and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Armann - Vestri 80-77

Armann has finally registered their first victory this season after 23 consecutive losses. They used home court advantage to defeat Vestri (8-14) 80-77. It looked good early as Vestri took a 1-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Armann had a 25-21 second period charge getting the lead and Vestri was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 77-80. Armann dominated down low during the game scoring 48 of its points in the paint compared to Vestri's 28. Guard Magnus Hjalmarsson (184) notched 17 points to lead the effort and Thorsteinn Hjorleifsson (-95) supported him with 10 points. Even 27 points and 7 rebounds by Serbian swingman Nebojsa Knezevic (196-87) did not help to save the game for Vestri. American forward Yima Chia-Kur (196-86, college: Arkansas St.) added 17 points and 8 rebounds for the guests. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Armann maintains ninth position with 1-23 record. Newly promoted Vestri keeps the sixth place with 14 games lost. Armann will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Vestri will play at home against Valur (#3) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Breidablik - IA 82-74

Rather predictable result in Kopavogur where fourth ranked Breidablik (16-7) defeated 8th ranked IA (6-17) 82-74. The hosts were already 11 points ahead after 3 quarters before a 16-13 IA's run in the last quarter cut the lead to 82-74 at the end of the game. Breidablik forced 21 IA turnovers. American guard Tyrone Garland (185-92, college: La Salle) notched 20 points and 6 assists to lead the effort and guard Ragnar Ragnarsson (188-97) supported him with 17 points and 6 rebounds. Breidablik's coach Larus Jonsson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even a double-double of 25 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists and 4 steals by American guard Derek Shouse (188-93, college: Mo.-St.Louis) did not help to save the game for IA. Swingman Bjorn Brynjolfsson (192-82) added 10 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists for the guests. Breidablik have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 16-7 record. IA at the other side keeps the eighth place with 17 games lost. Breidablik will play against league's leader Hottur in Egilsstadir in the next round and it may be the game of the week. IA will play at home against the league's second-placed Fjolnir (#2) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Top scorers:
Breidablik: T.Garland 20+4reb+6ast, R.Ragnarsson 17+6reb+2ast, B.Vidisson 14+4reb+1ast, K.Kjartansson 9+3reb+3ast, E.Vignisson 7+6reb+1ast, A.Gunnarsson 6+6reb+1ast
