Mad Ants need fast start

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

The key for the Mad Ants in tonight’s home opener against the Greensboro Swarm? Getting off to a better start than they did in their season-opening loss to Long Island, in which they were 22 points back in the second quarter and had to scrap to make it competitive.

This season’s Mad Ants pride themselves on their speed and defensive tenacity, so I think that will be a talking point for coach Steve Gansey at the outset.

Walter Lemon Jr. is coming off a 34-point opening night and he epitomizes the speed and defense we’re talking about. The expected starters for Fort Wayne: Lemon, Stephan Hicks, DeQuan Jones, C.J. Fair and Jarrod Uthoff.
