Mad Ants NBADL

  • Mad Ants affiliates up to baker’s dozen
    The D-League is moving toward a system in which there’s one team for every NBA team. But not all the NBA teams are yet interested in running a D-League team or even regularly sending players down.

Capsule: Mad Ants at Erie

When: 7 p.m. today;

2 p.m. Sunday

Where: Erie, Pa.

Records: Mad Ants 11-13, Erie 12-9

Web cast:

Mad Ants leaders: Luke Harangody (19.7 points), Harangody (13.3 rebounds), Ron Howard (4.7 assists)

Erie leaders: D.J. Kennedy (18.3 points), Kennedy (5.2 rebounds), Kennedy (8.4 assists)

Key matchup: Kennedy, Erie’s 6-foot-6 mismatch on the wing, has become the BayHawks’ most valuable player. In the Ants’ last game against Erie, Kennedy had 17 points and 14 rebounds in the Ants’ 112-84 win.

The skinny: Mad Ants guard Ron Howard had an MRI on his injured knee Wednesday, but no severe damage was found. Howard has missed all but three minutes of the last three games – all Mad Ants’ losses. The Ants, who won eight consecutive games, are trying to right the ship, and the return of Howard will help. Backup point guard Anthony Harris played 44 minutes in the Ants’ 78-69 loss at Canton on Monday.
