ANAHEIM, Calif., Jan. 4, 2007 –
The Idaho Stampede continued their winning ways Thursday night, as they cruised to the easy victory by defeating the Anaheim Arsenal by the score of 95-73. Idaho has now won seven of its last eight games, taking its record over the .500 mark for the first time this season.
The Stampede jumped out to an early seven-point advantage through one quarter and never looked back, finishing with a 22-point victory.
Randy Livingston led the Stampede with a terrific all-around performance, pouring in 19 points and dishing out 8 assists. Livingston also pulled down 6 rebounds. There were a total of six players from the Idaho squad scoring in double figures, including Ronell Taylor with 18.
“Tonight our shots were falling,” said Stampede Head Coach Bryan Gates. “Both teams gave the same amount of effort, we were just fortunate our shots were falling.”
Davin White led the Arsenal with 19 points. Corsley Edwards continues to contribute for the Arsenal, recording his eighth consecutive double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Andre Owens also chipped in for the Arsenal, scoring 15 points in the losing effort.
“Tonight was tough” said Arsenal Head Coach Larry Smith. “We struggled putting the ball in bucket; our intensity just wasn’t there.”
The Arsenal (6-10) will continue their five-game home stand on Saturday as they take on the D-League defending champion Albuquerque T-Birds. The Stampede (8-7) will look to continue its current hot steak when they face the D-Fenders on Sunday in Los Angeles.
