Mad Ants snap losing streak

The Mad Ants ended a seven-game losing streak Saturday with a 109-100 victory over Idaho in Boise.

Center Vernon Macklin led the Ants (12-33) with 24 points and 20 rebounds, while Stephen Graham added 20 points.

It was the first road win for the Ants since a 94-82 victory at Tulsa, Okla. on Jan. 28.

The Ants won despite guard Ron Howard not playing. Howard, who came into the weekend’s games as the team’s leading scorer with an average of 18 points, re-injured a thumb and sat out Saturday’s game.
