Idaho Picks-Up 123-109 Win Over Reno
RENO, Nevada - Patty Mills, on assignment from the Portland Trail Blazers, scored 38 points off the Idaho bench Friday night, lifting the Stampede to a 123-109 New Year's Day victory over the Reno Bighorns in the Reno Events Center.
Mills, Portland's second-round draft pick out of St. Mary's, finished 7-of-10 from behind the arc, while also chipping in 12 assists. Anthony Tolliver, who was waived by the Trail Blazers just days ago, scored 30 points and pulled down 12 rebounds for the Stampede (7-5).
Russell Robinson led the way for Reno (5-7) with 20 points and five assists. Marcus Hubbard recorded a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds on the evening for the Bighorns.
The night also included a coming-out party of sorts for a pair of young Reno guards. Eric Devendorf, in his third game with Reno, scored 11 points, while Chris Davis had a career night with 15 points off the bench.
The Bighorns outrebounded the Stampede 51-43. Idaho's proficiency from three-point range, though, proved to be the difference. The Stampede shot 46.9 percent from beyond the arc, hitting 15-of-32 attempts. Reno was limited to just two three-point field goals in 10 attempts.
The Bighorns and Stampede will hook-up once again on Sunday afternoon in the Reno Events Center. Tip-time is set for 3 p.m. Sunday's game will feature another Bighorns Family Feast Day, with hot dogs available for just $1.Tickets are on-sale now at www.RenoBighorns.com, the Reno Events Center Box Office, Silver Legacy Box Office, or by visiting any Northern Nevada Ticketmaster location or Web site.
