Not a bad game, really.
The Ants are trailing Iowa 55-50 at the half, even though Fort Wayne is shooting 38 percent (18 of 47) from the field.
Without Chris Hunter, the early concern was how Iowa's 6-foot-11 center Courtney Sims would do against the under-sized Ants, but Fort Wayne has a 28-23 rebounding edge, and Sims has nine points and six rebounds at the break.
Fort Wayne's two point guards are leading the team. Oliver Lafayette has 12 points, and Walker Russell Jr. has 11.
Most intersting aspect of the game so far came late in the first quarter when the Ants were whistled for three personal fouls and a technical within five seconds. Anthony Kent got a rebounding foul with 3:40 left, then Rod Wilmont got back-to-back dead ball fouls with 3:35 left, then got a technical to go along with it, even though he insisted that he didn't say anything to official Lauren Bass when he was coming off the floor. In a classic case of "he said, she said," she said he did.
See you after the game.
