Your Daily Dose of D League

Some player movement worth noting

-2006 28th overall pick Maurice Ager is being recalled by Dallas two weeks to the day after he was assigned there.

-Idaho announced Jeff Graves has left the team. He'd started in 28 games this season for Idaho, one of the league's best teams, while shooting 57.6% with 8 rebounds and 13.3 points per game, respectable numbers on the whole. No word on why he left just yet.

And in league news...

-It looks as if Des Moines will be getting an expansion D League squad. The D League, it dominates the midwest.

Idaho Stampede 85 @ Arkansas RimRockers 99
Ronnell Taylor, you suck, my friend. 0-11 shooting, 3 fouls, and 6 turnovers as West leading Idaho lost to one of the more lackluster teams in the league, East cellar dwelling Arkansas. Luke Jackson went for 19 and 8 on Idaho's end while all star Clay Tucker led Arkansas in the victory with 16 points and 10 assists.

Tulsa 66ers 106 @ Los Angeles D-Fenders 114
If the game were played on paper, I imagine Tulsa would've won this won. All star Will Conroy had 15 assists, Denham Brown scored 22, Mike Hall scored 25, and Desmon Farmer scored 27 for Tulsa. The rest of the team, however, failed to show up, while 6 players on Los Angeles scored in double digits, and, despite being outshot from both the field and three by slight percentages, committed 9 less turnovers and shot 18.8% better from the free throw line to secure victory.

Colorado 14ers 60 @ Bakersfield Jam 64 (3rd Quarter)
The Jam just knocked off one of the best teams in the East, Dakota, twice in a row, so it'd be something if they could upset Colorado here tonight as well. Mateen Cleaves is leading the way for Bakersfield, with 14 points and 6 assists on 7-8 shooting so far. Bakersfield is somehow winning despite Von Wafer's 20 points and Elton Brown's 15.
