Ants delve into analytics

The Mad Ants have hired Eitan Rosenberg as director of analytics for the D-League team.

With experience helping NBA teams, he will be involved in player evaluations and the use of advanced statistics.

"I feel very fortunate to have Eitan as a part of our staff," Mad Ants president Jeff Potter said today.
