  • Ants will look different
    When the Mad Ants open defense of their D-League championship this season, the roster will likely look very different.

Ants can pass Maine

A win by the Mad Ants over Maine on Thursday would sent the Ants ahead of the RedClaws in the D-League East Division standings.

The Ants come in with a 21-21 record, and Maine, after Wednesday's loss in Canton, is 23-22.

Maine will have 7-foot-5 Will Foster on the roster tonight. Foster, a Gonzaga teammate of Maine forward Micah Downs, was acquired from the D-League player pool when Garrett Stutz was placed on the inactive list due to illness.

Former Indiana University guard Jeremiah Rivers is also on the Maine roster, but did not play at Canton due to illness.
