Here to see Ants' Hollins

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

The Mad Ants, who take on the Iowa Wolves at 5 p.m., haven't played at Memorial Coliseum since Feb 3. The thing I'm most interested to see now is the offense being run solely by Tra-Deon Hollins, the rookie who was playing in the Summit League last season. He had a career high in points (13) in the 112-110 victory Friday at Canton, Ohio, and has averaged 9.7 assists over the last three games. His ascension, of course, was necessary after Walt Lemon Jr. went to the NBA's New Orleans Pelicans and Trey McKinney Jones to the Indiana Pacers. And the best part about Hollins? His defense. He's the team's king of the steal.
