Harangody out for weekend

Luke Harangody, the Mad Ants' leading scorer and rebounder, will be out longer than expected with a knee injury, coach Duane Ticknor said today.

Traveling with the team to Erie, Pa. for tonight's NBA D-League game, Ticknor confirmed that Harangody will not only miss tonight's game, but also Saturday's game in Springfield, Mass.

"We're going to hold him out through the weekend," Ticknor said. "I think he'll be back Tuesday."

The Ants (15-17) will return to Memorial Coliseum on Tuesday to play Canton.

Harangody, the 6-foot-8 forward and former Notre Dame standout, leads the team in scoring (20.1 average) and rebounding (12.2).

He injured his knee earlier this month, then left the court early in the third quarter in the Feb. 8 game with Rio Grande Valley.

The team has not played a game since Feb. 9 in Des Moines, Iowa.

"It's the same as it's been; there's nothing different," Ticknor said of the injury. "It's just a sore knee.

"Obviously it's a big impact when you lose your leading scorer and rebounder. It's also an opportunity for other guys to step up and show that they belong on the court. Brandon (Wallace) and Tommy (Smith) have both done that over the last couple games."

Ticknor said the 6-8 Wallace will replace Harangody in the starting lineup.
