The Idaho Stampede are in a major slump. Shooting 33.3 percent from the field isnt going to get them out of that slump.
The Reno Bighorns took advantage of Idahos poor shooting night in a 96-83 victory Friday night at CenturyLink Arena. It was the Stampedes sixth straight loss.
Idaho (1-12) will try for its second win of the season when it hosts Reno again Saturday night.
Justin Holiday had a team-high 21 points for Idaho, but it was the shooting numbers that stood out in this loss. Durrell Summers (10 points) went 2-for-16 from the field, and Coby Karl (six points) went 1-for-8.
Reno, meanwhile, shot 49.4 percent from the field. Marcus Landry led the Bighorns with 23 points.
STAMPEDE SIGN CENTER
Idaho announced Friday it had signed 7-foot-1 center Solomon Alabi. A native of Nigeria, Alabi played three seasons at Florida State, where he averaged 9.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 76 career games.
Alabi was drafted 50th overall in the 2010 NBA Draft before being traded to the Toronto Raptors on draft night. He played a limited role in 26 games with Toronto from 2010 to 2012, but he had a standout game with the Raptors in the final game of the 2011-12 season, when he had a career-high 11 points and 19 rebounds in a 98-67 win over the New Jersey Nets. Alabi didnt dress for Fridays game.
