ÍR beats current Icelandic basketball champion KR

Reykjavík basketball rivals ÍR and KR met in the KR´s home gym, DHL Sports Hall, yesterday. To a miracle ÍR was a better team and after 8 years became the first team which deleted the current champion out of the finals. ÍR beat KR 93 – 74. 

The player of the game was Hreggvidur Magnússon who hit 11 of his 16 shots and made 29 points in the match. He warns other teams that ÍR is playing their best basketball ever. 

KR´s coach Benedikt Gudmundsson was very disappointed with himself and his team. According to him KR hadn’t been motivated enough for the game. 

The next opponent of ÍR will be Keflavík. Yesterday’s result says that ÍR can go far.
