Mad Ants NBADL

  • Mad Ants affiliates up to baker’s dozen
    The D-League is moving toward a system in which there’s one team for every NBA team. But not all the NBA teams are yet interested in running a D-League team or even regularly sending players down.

D-League preview: Mad Ants vs. Canton

When: 7:30 p.m. today; 7 p.m. Monday

Where: Canton, Ohio, today; Memorial Coliseum, Monday

Records: Mad Ants 13-14; Canton 17-11


Mad Ants leaders: Luke Harangody (23.5 ppg), Harangody (13.4 rpg), Anthony Harris (5.0 apg)

Canton leaders: Kevin Jones (23.0 ppg), Jones (12.6 rpg), Josh Selby (5.2 apg)

Key matchup: Two of the top D-League prospects will go at it when Harangody faces Jones, the 6-foot-8, 260-pound forward who played at West Virginia. Jones is back in Canton after having played 15 games with the Charge’s NBA affiliate, Cleveland. Jones and Harangody, the 6-8, 240-pound forward who played at Notre Dame and was named the D-League Player of the Month for January, are two of the most-watched players by NBA scouts.

The skinny: The Ants are coming off a 115-109 home win over Maine on Thursday night. With the Red Claws and Canton tied for first in the East Division, the Ants are 3 1/2 games out of first place. … Fort Wayne will be without point guard Ron Howard, who was put on injured reserve while he recovers from a knee injury. Backup point guard Anthony Harris filled in Thursday with 17 assists. … Center Mile Plumlee was recalled from the Ants to the Indiana Pacers.
