VISITING IDAHO TOPS TULSA
Also scoring in double figures for the 66ers was Jerome Dyson with 16.
Tulsa collected 21 assists as a team, led by six dishes from Larry Owens. The 66ers shot 32-of-61 (.525) from the floor, marking the seventh time this season they have shot better than 50 percent overall in a contest.
The 66ers defense forced 21 Stampede turnovers and created 11 steals, led by two thefts each from Dyson, Delroy James and Owens.
“We are a young team that needs to focus on getting better both collectively and individually,” 66ers head coach Dale Osbourne said. “Idaho is a good, veteran team. We need to continue to find ways to win basketball games down the stretch as a team.”
Leading Idaho in scoring was Marcus Banks off the bench with 19. David Bailey added nine rebounds and a game-high seven assists.
The 66ers return to the court this Friday, Feb. 17, when they travel to Sioux Falls to take on the Skyforce at 7 p.m. CT.
