We bring you last week's top performances from Icelandic who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Jakob Sigurdarson
Jakob Sigurdarson
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced former international point guard Jakob Sigurdarson (192-82, college: Birm.Southern, currently plays in Sweden). He was the major contributor in a Boras Basket's victory against the league leader BC Lulea (21-7) 99-90 in the Swedish Basketligan in Tuesday night's game. Sigurdarson scored 23 points and added 4 passes in 32 minutes on the court. Boras Basket (15-14) is placed sixth in the Basketligan. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Sigurdarson has relatively good stats this year: 13.7ppg, 3.3rpg, 2.4apg, 2FGP: 51.5%, 3FGP: 34.9% and FT: 94.6%(88-93) in 28 games he played so far. He played for the Icelandic senior national team two years ago.

Haukur Palsson
Haukur Palsson
   #2. Second place goes to an international small forward Haukur Palsson (197-92, college: Maryland, currently plays in France). Palsson led SPO Rouen to a victory against the league outsider JA Vichy (8-13) 76-66 in the French ProB (second division) last Tuesday. He recorded a double-double by scoring 11 points and getting 12 rebounds. Palsson also added 3 assists. SPO Rouen Basket (10-11) is placed 11th in the ProB. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. This season Palsson has relatively solid stats: 11.8ppg, 4.9rpg, 3.9apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 38.1%, 3FGP: 40.3% and FT: 74.2%. He is in the roster of the Icelandic senior national team.

Elvar Fridriksson
   #3. The Icelandic player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Elvar Fridriksson (183-94, college: LIU Brooklyn, currently plays in NCAA2). Fridriksson could not help the Barry University (13-5) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the Barry University was edged 97-95 on the road by the Palm Beach Atlantic University. Fridriksson scored 31 points (!!!) and added 5 assists in 43 minutes. There are only three games left until the end of the NCAA2 Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Fridriksson has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 18.3ppg, 4.3rpg, 7.6apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 56.9%(87-153), 3FGP: 38.4% and FT: 87.9% in 23 games.

Hermannsson scored 19 points, had 6 rebounds and dished 7 assists; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. Etoile Charleville-Mezieres (12-9) is placed third in the ProB. They ended the series of five consecutive loses. This season Hermannsson has very high stats. He averages: 17.7ppg, 4.0rpg and 5.8apg.

Kari Jonsson
   #5. U20 international guard Kari Jonsson (190-97, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA was not able to help the Drexel (3-15) in their last game. Despite his good performance the Drexel lost 70-80 at home to the James Madison University. Jonsson scored 14 points (went 6 for 6 at the free throw line) in 26 minutes. It was Drexel's third consecutive loss in a row. The Regular Season already ended in the NCAA. Jonsson has reliable stats this year: 10.1ppg, 2.3rpg and 2.0apg in 28 games. He plays currently for the Icelandic U20 national team.

   #6. Forward Kristofer Acox (198-93, currently studies in the States) was not able to secure a victory for the Furman (14-4) in their game against the Samford University (8-10) in the NCAA. Acox did not beat the league record on Saturday evening. He recorded only 3 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. The Furman was defeated 67-63 in Birmingham by the Samford University.

Gudmundsson's team will play only one more game in the NCAA Regular Season. And now that game is quite important.
