Considering that the Mad Ants had a 5 a.m. wake-up call and got back into Fort Wayne a little past noon today, their 62-54 halftime lead over Sioux Falls is fairly impressive.
The game isn't as sloppy as you'd think for a team that is short on sleep and long on travel. Walker Russell Jr. has five of the Ants' 13 assists, compared to the team's 7 turnovers.
At the half, Marvin Phillips and Anthony Kent have 15 points each, and Russell has 10.
It's also the reuniting of former Purdue teammates Chris Kramer (Ants) and Keaton Grant (Skyforce). Kramer has three points, and Grant has two.
