Marcus Banks scored 36 points, a team-high this season for the Idaho Stampede, but the Reno Bighorns beat the Stampede 124-92 on Friday.

Banks was 11-of-17 from the field for Idaho (18-29). Seth Tarver was the only other Stampede player to reach double-figures with 10 points and five rebounds.

Walker back with Idaho, Caracter added to roster: The Idaho Stampede re-acquired Antoine Walker and acquired Derrick Caracter, the club announced Friday.

Walker was waived due to personal reasons before the March 23 game against Fort Wayne. Walker has played in 40 games and is averaging 9.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game this season.

Caracter has played for the Los Angeles D-Fenders and Rio Grande Valley Vipers this season and is averaging 13.1 ppg and 6.3 rpg. Caracter has played 41 games in his NBA career, all of them with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2010-11.

In order to make room on the roster, the Stampede waived Tony Bobbitt due to injury and Chris Davis due to personal reasons.
