Bentil indeed back for Ants

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

If what we saw in warm-ups is any indication, Ben Bentil will be back in the lineup for the Mad Ants today against the Delaware 87ers. He has missed nine straight games, first because he was with the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and then because of a back injury.

Sounds like Larry Bird, the Indiana Pacers' president, will be here for a second time this season.

Fort Wayne is 25-18 and has a hold on the fourth playoffs spot in the conference, but there's time to move up or down with seven games remaining in the regular season. Delaware, which has former Fort Wayne player Russ Smith, is 23-20.
