Turnovers ruin Ants' game

The Mad Ants shot about the same from the field as Erie (42 percent to 43.3), had one less free throw and a lot more rebounds (56--42). But what caused the Ants' 95-83 loss to the BayHawks on Thursday at Memorial Coliseum was that they had twice as many turnovers (24-12).

It was the fourth straight loss for the Ants (11-30), and the 17th loss in their last 20 games.

Newcomer Vernon Macklin, on an extended loan from the Detroit Pistons, had an 18 double-double: 18 points, 18 rebounds. While guard Anthony Goods led the team with 22 points, he also had a team-high six turnovers.

Stephen Graham, who last season played with the New Jersey Nets, added 15 points.

The Ants will play Erie (21-18) at 5 p.m. Sunday.
