The halftime score is Iowa 56, Mad Ants 47 - or so we're told.
See, the scoreboard inside the Coliseum isn't working, so the public address announcer has to report the score after every basket.
To make things even more weird, the shot clock stopped working midway through the second quarter, and now the P.A. guy is counting down from 10 on the shot clock.
The P.A. announcer is working harder than some of the Mad Ants.
Thanks to a lot of uncontested shots and several easy layups, the Energy is shooting 65 percent (26 of 40), while the Ants are like the old L.P.s at 33 1/3 (16 of 48).
Reserve guard Gage Daye leads the Ants in scoring with 11, but he's given up just about that many.
