Markus Hallgrimson (born May 31, 1975 in Germany) is a German professional basketball player, most notable for his NCAA record for 16-three-point field goals in a single game. He is currently playing for RheinStars Köln in Germany.
The 6ft3 Shooting guard attended Montana St. Billings, where he achieved his record feat during the 1999–2000 season. Aside from the 16-field goal record, Hallgrimson also made his mark as the top 3-point shooter in NCAA-2, with a 40% percent record and an average 23.7 point haul per match.
In 2000, after graduating from college, Hallgrimson returned to his homeland and signed a professional contract with leading Bundesliga club Avitos Giessen, where he averaged just 5.3 points-per-game. The following season, Markus stepped down a division to join BCJ Hamburg Tigers with his 15.6 PPG, 2.1 RPG and 1.4 APG in 27 appearances leading them to the Bundesliga 2 Division title.
Despite his team winning promotion, Hallgrimson opted to stay in Bundesliga 2 with NVV Lions Mönchengladbach, yet after only 7 games, and an impressive 24.9 PPG, he was transferred to Chemitz 99.
Nicknamed "Montana", Hallgrimson now plays in Würzburg (3rd German division) for the second time alongside Croatian forward Hrvoje Pervan (Mercer College), former Seton Hall center Grant Billmeier and former Rhode Island center Michael Moten. He currently is Würzburg Baskets' second-best scorer with 20.1 ppg after 10 games and had several outstanding offensive performances such as a 40 point (12 three-pointers) game against COCOON Baskets Weiden.
