Ants forward Ramon Harris, whose six three-point shots led to 20 points in the team's overtime win over Dakota on Sunday, was helped off the floor with 6:27 left in the half when he went in for a layup, was fouled, and fell to the floor directly beneath the basket.

Walker Russell Jr. leads the Ants with 14 points and eight assists. Darnell Lazare and Cam Jones have 10 points each for the Ants.
