Mad Antics

  • Several Mad Ants stars to Europe
    Everyone knew the Mad Ants roster would look different, even in the wake of the team's first D-League championship.
  • 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.

Cold Ants trail Red Claws at the half

Shooting only 39 percent on 20 of 51 accuracy from the floor, the Mad Ants trail Maine 54-48 at the halftime of Friday's D-League game at Memorial Coliseum.

Darnell Lazare leads the Ants with 12 points, but has made just 5 of 12 shots. Mike Tisdale has eight points and has eight rebounds.

The Mad Ants are out-rebounding the Red Claws 29-22, and have two more assists (12 to 10). So the difference in the game is essentially that Maine is hot (22 of 43) and the Ants are not.
