Ants trail at half

That six-game home winning streak could be in a spot of trouble here.

Halftime, and the Mad Ants trail Sioux Falls 64-53. The Skyforce has led since a 7-0 run took them from 5-2 down to 9-5 ahead. They've done it primarily because the Ants have been unable to stop them off the dribble up high, and because Sioux Falls has made a living off the kick-out three, hitting 8-of-14 from beyond the arc.

Bad news for the Mad Ants: Besides Tony Mitchell (16 points) and Ron Howard (12), no one's scoring.

Worse news for Ants: They had the ball at the end of the half with a chance to cut the lead to six (or more), only to have Gabe Pruitt steal a soft pass and beat the buzzer with a win-the-car three. It was the Ants' 12 turnover of the game.
