The newest member of the Fort Wayne Mad Ants has seen more Ants wins than Fort Wayne guard Devan Downey, and Downey has been with the team for more than a month.
Charles Garcia, a 6-foot-9, 230-pound forward, was picked up by the Ants today and is expected to play when the Ants face Dakota at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Coliseum.
Garcia, who scored 12 points for the East in the recent D-League All-Star game, was waived by Sioux Falls and quickly snagged by the Ants, who will attempt to end a 10-game losing streak that enveloped all of February.
Garcia was a member of the Sioux Falls Skyforce when they played the Ants in the season opener - a game in which the Ants won, 110-106. Garcia torched the Ants for 32 points and 18 rebounds in the game.
To make room for Garcia, the Ants waived guard Travis Walton.
