Stampede Prevail in Overtime
ANAHEIM, Calif. (Jan. 9, 2009) - Coby Karl sank a field goal with 3.1 seconds left to lead the Idaho Stampede over the Anaheim Arsenal 132-130 in a thrilling overtime finish. Karl finished with 32 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists.
With only seven players able to play, the Arsenal were forced to deal with an unconventional roster which stopped the surging Stampede offense. The Stampede were down a player after Jermareo Davidson was called up to the Golden State Warriors earlier in the week.
Arsenal guard Tierre Brown collected a double-double with 35 points and 15 assists for the Arsenal including a three pointer at the end of the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime.
Brown noted, "The team felt strong tonight. Once we get to full strength I have no doubt we will be able to add some more wins to our record."
Kedrick Brown collected 27 points, James White ended with 24 points, and Malick Badiane tallied a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds in his first game with Arsenal.
Idaho center Lance Allred finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds while Luke Jackson finished with 23 points before fouling out in the fourth quarter.
The Arsenal head off on a two-week, six-game road trip and will face Ft. Wayne on Sunday, January 11. The Stampede continue their road trip and take on the Bakersfield Jam on Sunday, January 11th in a competition between the top two teams in the Western Division.
