Something's gotta give

Going into Wednesday night's schedule there are three 0-2 teams in the NBA D-League, and two of them are in Memorial Coliseum tonight, which means either the Mad Ants or Canton will get their first win.

The Ants' starting lineup tonight was provided before the game, with a brief comment of how each player did the previous game. Walker Russell Jr., 19 points, 4 assists; Ron Howard, 24 points, 9 rebounds. And things begin to drop off: JaJuan Johnson, 4 points, 8 rebounds; Tony Mitchell, no comment; Sean Sonderleiter, 4 minutes, 1 rebound.

Canton could pose a problem inside with 6-foot-8, 250-pound Kevin Jones and 6-9, 275 Arinze Onuaku. Combined, they average around 40 points and 27 rebounds.
