Mad Antics

  • Mad Ants grab 1st win of season
    Led by 28 points from Andre Emmett, the Mad Ants got their first victory over the season Saturday night, defeating the Erie Bayhawks 103-93 in front of 4,617 fans at Erie Insurance Arena.
  • Mad Ants tough start continues
    The Mad Ants’ defense of their D-League championship has gotten off to a rough start. A 99-87 loss Friday at Erie, Pennsylvania, dropped them to 0-3 on the season.
  • Porter out tonight at Erie
    Mad Ants captain Chris Porter is out of the lineup tonight at Erie, Pennsylvania, with an elbow injury. Titus Rubles will take his place on the active roster.

Familiar face for Ants' game

With the lack of big men on this current Mad Ants roster, it would be nice if they could reacquire an old face who will be on the Erie bench tonight.

Marvin Phillips Jr., the 6-foot-8 forward who played a season and a half with the Ants, including this year when he was released a month ago, is now with the Erie BayHawks. He has played 13 games and averages nearly five points and five rebounds per game. A week ago against Maine, Phillips had 12 points.

The Ants (10-21) will be out to end a five-game losing streak. They will leave from the Coliseum on Thursday night and fly to Frisco, Texas, where they will face the Texas Legends on Friday night.
