Blackmon Jr. playing against Ants

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

The Mad Ants are 3-1 heading into their game tonight with the Delaware 87ers, who are 0-6, and those 87ers have a player very familiar to Fort Wayne basketball fans – former Bishop Luers and Indiana University basketball player James Blackmon Jr.

He is a rookie, who was third-team All-Big Ten as a junior last year.

So it will certainly be interesting to see him on this court against the likes of Walt Lemon Jr., who has been one of the most exciting players in the G League so far this season, and Ike Anigbogu, who is down for the first time from the NBA’s Indiana Pacers.
