The shot was cool, the announcer’s call was even better.
March Madness—or, as they’d call it, Mars brjálæði—has hit Iceland.
Haukar’s Kari Jonsson hit a buzzer-beater from the opposite free-throw to beat Keflavik on Tuesday to take a commanding 2–0 lead in the best-of-five playoff series. The shot was cool, the announcer’s call was even better.
I’d hazard a guess that the man behind the microphone is a Keflavik fan because “nei” is Icelandic for no.
Jonsson spent last season playing for Drexel University in Philadelphia but left the team this fall to turn pro. That seems like a good decision, since he’s now the leading scorer for first-place Haukar.
