Ants hang on to reach .500

The Mad Ants rode a 29-point halftime lead to a 115-102 victory over Canton on Tuesday at Memorial Coliseum.

The win hiked the Ants' record to 19-19 - the first time they have been at the .500 level since they were 11-11 on Jan. 18.

Fort Wayne outscored Canton (22-15) 36-12 in the second quarter to race out to a 70-41 halftime lead. But the Charge made exactly that and got within 12, 100-88, with 6:15 remaining. The Ants responded with six unanswered points to clinch the win.

Tony Mitchell led the Fort Wayne scoring with 27 points and Ron Howard had 26.

The game also marked the return of forward Luke Harangody, who has been out since Feb. 8 with a knee injury. The former Notre Dame standout had 16 points.
