Rest over, Mad Ants work OT for victory

– After a nearly two-week layoff, the Mad Ants returned to action Friday with a 106-97 overtime win at Erie, Pa.

The Ants (16-17) had not played an NBA D-League game since Feb. 8, when they defeated Iowa.

The team travels to Springfield, Mass. for a 7 p.m. game today against the Armor (11-12).

It will be the third consecutive game in which the Ants have been without its leading scorer and rebounder, Luke Harangody, who is out with a knee injury. Harangody, the former Notre Dame standout, averages 20.1 points and 12.3 rebounds.

First-year coach Duane Ticknor has said he hopes to have Harangody back for Tuesday’s home game against Erie.

The Ants trailed Erie 30-22 after the first quarter. In the overtime, Fort Wayne outscored Erie 13-4.

Three players scored 20 or more points for the Ants against the BayHawks.

Forward Tony Mitchell, who won the slam dunk contest as the D-League All-Star game, led the way with 29 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.

Fellow all-star Ron Howard had 27 points, and Anthony Richardson had 20.
