Where: Tulio Arena, Erie, Pa.

Records: Mad Ants 9-10, Erie 10-6

Web: NBADLeague.com

Mad Ants leaders: Ron Howard (20 ppg); Luke Harangody (13.4 rpg); Howard (4.6 apg)

Erie leaders: D.J. Kennedy (18.7 ppg); Kennedy ( 8 rpg) Kennedy (5.3 apg)

Key matchup: Harangody has looked just like he did when he starred at Notre Dame since joining the Ants. The 6-foot-8 forward has averaged 18.8 points and 13.4 rebounds in five games with Fort Wayne. The Bayhawks have their own do-everything forward in the 6-6 Kennedy, who went to St. John’s. These former Big East opponents could decide tonight’s game.

The skinny: The Ants have won their last six games after winning two in the D-League Showcase in Reno, Nev., this week. Fort Wayne defeated Rio Grande Valley 116-97 Wednesday and Tulsa 121-115 Thursday. … Erie handed Fort Wayne a 109-100 loss in the teams’ season opener Nov. 23, but the Bayhawks lost the last meeting 107-83 Dec. 29.
