25, and still counting

The Mad Ants won their 25th game Friday, beating Reno 106-86 at Memorial Coliseum.

It was the 25th win of the season, which sets the franchise record, beating the old record of 24-26 that was set two years ago, with Joey Meyer as coach.

The Ants have three games remaining in the regular season, including the home finale Sunday against Texas. They close out the regular season on the road at Sioux Falls and Tulsa.

For the fourth game in a row, forward Tony Mitchell led the Ants (25-22) in scoring, with 25 points. But Brandon Wallace added 16 points and 15 rebounds.

Anthony Richardson and Sadiel Rojas had 14 points each - with all of Rojas' points coming in the fourth period. Demetri McCamey added 11 points and five assists.

Former Ants point guard Walker Russell Jr., who was traded to Reno in exchange for Richardson, played 22 minutes. He had six points and two assists.
