BOISE--  The Idaho Stampede kept their postseason chances alive on Friday night, beating the Utah Flash 112-100 at Qwest Arena. 

Using a "run and gun" style, the Stampede simply outran the Flash on the way to shooting 54.9 percent from the floor.  Antoine Walker led the way for the Stampede, scoring 23 points, while Carlos Wheeler chipped in 13 points and 11 rebounds. 

The victory keeps Idaho in contention for the 8th spot in the NBA D-League playoffs.  The Stampede are currently tied with Texas and Fort Wayne with records of 23-26.  Should the Stampede win in their season closer against Utah on Saturday and if Texas were to lose, Idaho would earn the final spot in the playoffs.
