Patrick Miller and Micheal Eric had 21 points each, while three other Legends also scored in figures.

Ray Parks came up with a solid performance in 22 minutes, scoring six points on 2 of 6 shooting, as the Legends started their five-game road trip on a winning note.

Parks made his two field goals in the fourth, the last on a layup off an assist from Tu Holloway.

Brandon Ashley had 17 points, Holloway had 16 and Toure Murry added 13 for Texas.

Brandon Fields and Jeremy Williams both had 18 points and four others chipped in twin digit scores for the Stampede, who suffered their 17th loss in 27 games.
