Bartolotta Strong Again as IR Wins 2nd Straight

Jimmy Bartolotta was back in action tonight, after last night's game against KFI was rescheduled due to inclement weather. Bartolotta's IR side came out on top, winning 92-82, as he scored 16 points. He is now averaging 25 points per game for the season, on 60% shooting from 2, 45% shooting from 3, and 94.4% shooting from the FT line. Despite being 3-8 prior to Bartolotta's arrival, IR has won its last two game with the former MIT star. IR seems poised to make a run for the playoffs, as they have moved up to a tie for 8th place in the Iceland Express League (IEL). The top 8 teams in the league qualify for the postseason.

IR is back in action next Thursday, January 27, as they travel to Tindastoll. Tindastoll is currently one game ahead of IR in the rankings, and a win could move IR into the 6th or 7th position in the IEL.
