After a long road trip that finally ended last weekend with a pair of losses against Iowa, the Mad Ants returned to Fort Wayne and on Monday had their first practice since ... well, since head coach Joey Meyer couldn't remember.
He saw Anthony Kent shooting free throws inside the Concordia Seminary gym, said he hadn't seen him in a while because Kent missed the last three games with the flu, and went to check on his status.
Center Jared Reiner, also absent because of a bad back, walked across the floor, extended his hand to Meyer and said, "I'm Jared Reiner."
But it was former Indiana guard Rod Wilmont who got the practice off to a light start.
In warm-up drills, while walking and stretching across the floor from baseline to 10-second line, Wilmont looked to his left, then right, then left again. After seeing Sean Sonderleiter, Rob Kurz, Joe Alexander, Kyle McAlarney and Reiner, Wilmont announced, "We've got too many white guys on this team! I didn't have this many white guys when I was at IU!"
