Reykjavík Club Icelandic Basketball Champion

Reykjavík sports club KR became the Icelandic champion in women’s basketball yesterday with an 84-79 victory over Hamar from Hveragerdi. This is the 14th time that KR earns the title.

However, KR hasn’t been the Icelandic champion in the past eight years. “I have waited for this title since I was 13. I feel wonderful, this is a great team […] and I’m honored to be part of it,” Signý Hermannsdóttir of KR told Morgunbladid.

Unnur Tara Jónsdóttir, who proved one of the best players in yesterday’s game, scoring 27 points, hardly knew what to say after the game ended.

“I don’t think I’ve ever fought this hard as in this game and I have never been as tired,” Jónsdóttir said. “It has been a tough season and Hamar was our main opponent. They’re good but we’re better.”
