Mad Antics

  • Tryout information
    The Mad Ants will hold an open tryout from 2 to 6 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Quest Multisport Complex in Chicago.
  • Howard not sure on return to Mad Ants this season
    Howard has had some interest from NBA teams – that's nothing new, though Howard has never made a regular-season roster – and is again fielding offers from teams in Europe.
  • Ants will look different
    When the Mad Ants open defense of their D-League championship this season, the roster will likely look very different.

Ants trail at the half

The Mad Ants trail Canton at the half, 55-52. But it could be worse. In fact, it was.

With 7:15 left in the half, Canton held a 43-32 lead, but the Ants took off on a 12-0 run to take a 44-43 lead on Ron Howard's free throw with 3:17 remaining. It was Keith McLeod's three-pointer with 34.2 seconds left that gave the Charge the three-point halftime margin.

Howard leads the Ants with 12 points, and Cam Jones has 10.
