Farmer sets another Bighorns’ record

BOISE, Idaho – Desmon Farmer rewrote the Bighorns’ record books once again Saturday night, pouring in a franchise-record 41 points to lift Reno to a 129-116 win over the Idaho Stampede in Qwest Arena.

Farmer, who now holds the top-three single-game scoring performances in franchise history, connected on 14 of 26 attempts from the floor and 10 of 11 free throw tries on the evening.

The Bighorns (8-12) took control in the fourth quarter of what was a back-and-forth affair. Reno outscored Idaho 42-30 in the final frame to cruise to its third-straight victory and to complete the weekend sweep over the Stampede (11-8).

Reno saw six players register double figures in scoring on Saturday, including an 18-point effort for Cezary Trybanski, and 16 points apiece for Doug Thomas and Mo Charlo. As a team, the Bighorns shot 57 percent from the floor and better than 83 percent from the stripe.

Idaho leaned on 36 points from Coby Karl and a 31-point effort by Patty Mills. Mildon Ambres pulled down 13 boards for the Stampede.

Next up for Reno is a date with the Utah Flash next Wednesday night at the McKay Event Center in Orem, Utah.
