Ants rally in 4th to charge past Canton

With five players scoring in double figures, the Mad Ants recovered from a nine-point deficit at the end of three quarters to post a 98-84 victory at Canton, Ohio, on Wednesday.

After leading 33-22 at the end of the first quarter, the Ants fell behind 78-69 going into the fourth quarter, but outscored the Charge 29-16 in the final period to win their third game since February.

The Ants entered the game on a two-game losing streak, and have won three of their last 22 games.

Cam Jones led the Ants (13-35) with 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the floor. Stephen Graham had 15 points, Ron Howard had 14, Charles Garcia had 13 and Ramon Harris, 10. And although 6-foot-10 center Vernon Macklin was held to eight points, he added 12.rebounds and five assists.

The Ants, who conclude their D-League season with back-to-back games against Dakota on Friday and Saturday, hit 38 of 71 shots for a .535 percentage.

Former Notre Dame standout Luke Harangody led Canton (26-22) with 20 points and 11 rebounds.
