Mad Ants defeat Tulsa in Showcase

Another night, another win for the Mad Ants in the D-League Showcase in Reno, Nev.

The Ants climbed to 10-7 on the season with a 105-97 defeat of the Tulsa 66ers (4-14), putting five players in double figures in the process.

Fort Wayne was 3-0 in the Showcase, including the makeup game against Texas.

Ron Howard led the way with 21 points, followed by Trey McKinney-Jones (18), Darnell Lazare (14), Chris Porter (13) and Sadiel Rojas. The Ants were 6-of-10 from the 3-point line and had 26 assists and 21 turnovers.

The newest Ant, though not really new, scored eight off the bench. That was forward Tony Mitchell, the league Rookie of the Year for the Ants last year, who was activated for last night’s game after coming back to Fort Wayne from China.
