Anthony
Odunsi
The Regular Season in Dominos League just ended.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked KR (17-5) in Reykjavik on Thursday night. Hosts were defeated by third ranked Stjarnan (16-6) 78-73. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of KR. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. KR was trailing by 2 points at halftime but managed to get 8-point lead after three quarters before a 24-11 charge of Stjarnan, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of Nigerian-American guard Anthony Odunsi (193-92, college: Houston Baptist, agency: SDJ Sports) who helped to win the game recording 19 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. The former international power forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82) contributed with 9 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. The former international guard Pavel Ermolinskij (202-87) replied with a double-double by scoring 14 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists for KR. Stjarnan moved-up to second place. Defending champion KR still keeps top position with five games lost.
Important game to mention about took place in Hafnarfjordur. Tenth ranked Haukar (9-13) saved a 3-point victory at home edging much higher ranked Tindastoll (15-7) 77-74 on Thursday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. American forward Cedrick Bowen (198-92, college: Charleston So.) scored 19 points and 8 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and Emil Barja chipped in 10 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists during the contest. Haukar's coach Ivar Asgrimsson used entire bench in such tough game. At the losing side American forward Antonio Hester (198-90, college: Mobile, AL) responded with 19 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 6 steals. Haukar have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain tenth position with 9-13 record. Tindastoll at the other side dropped to the third place with seven games lost.
A very close game took place in Reykjavik between IR and Keflavik. Seventh ranked IR (11-11) got a very close home victory over 6th ranked Keflavik (11-11). IR managed to escape with a 1-point win 88-87 in the fight for the sixth place. Matthias Sigurdarson notched 30 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists to lead the effort. Even a double-double of 29 points, 19 rebounds and 5 assists by Amin Stevens did not help to save the game for Keflavik. IR moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Keflavik and Thor AK.
Bottom-ranked Snaefell is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their 22th consecutive match to eighth ranked Thor AK (11-11) 89-62. George Beamon fired 30 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Thor AK moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Keflavik and IR. Snaefell at the other side still closes the standings.

In the last two games of round 22 Njardvik was beaten by Thor Thorl on the road 83-70. Grindavik won against Skallagrimur on its own court 101-89.
The most impressive performance of 22th round was 22 points and 10 rebounds by Tobin Carberry of Thor Thorl.

Thor Thorl - Njardvik 83-70

No shocking result in a game when fifth ranked Thor Thorl (12-10) beat 9th ranked Njardvik (10-12) in Thorlakshofn 83-70. The game was mostly controlled by Thor Thorl. Njardvik was better in third quarter 19-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 16-of-21 charity shots (76.2 percent) during the game. American guard Tobin Carberry (193-91, college: LIU Post, agency: HMS) fired a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Naturalized Polish Maciej Baginski (195-95) chipped in 16 points and 8 rebounds. Carberry is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top summer league for players who want to play basketball overseas. Four Thor Thorl players scored in double figures. American guard Myron Dempsey (203-91, college: Paul Quinn, agency: Mansfield and Associates) produced 18 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists and the former international Logi Gunnarsson (190-81) added 27 points respectively for lost side.
