After game, Ants to hit road

The Ants beg for weekend games at Memorial Coliseum, and so they got one tonight with a 7:30 p.m. start against Rio Grande Valley.

Since the game won't end until 10 p.m. or so, it'll be 10:15, 10:30 before the players get on the bus for a five-hour ride to Des Moines, Iowa, where they will play Saturday night. That should make for some fine basketball then.

Also, it's Star Wars promotion night at the Coliseum tonight - perfect for a team whose leading scorer is Luke.

That would be Harangody, just in case you haven't been paying attention.
