Mad Ants protesting

The first game of the Mad Ants season was a loss, but it certainly didn't lack excitement.

The Mad Ants lost 100-99 at Texas, and team president Jeff Potter confirmed via text message that Fort Wayne is protesting the victory.

Fort Wayne, which had trailed most of the night, was tied at 99 with Texas, which had a chance to win with less than a second in regulation time.

A Chris Douglas-Roberts shot from 3-point range was blocked.

In a stoppage that took a few minutes, to decide how much time should be on the clock, the Mad Ants attempted to call a timeout.

The problem was they didn't have one. And the Mad Ants say they were given incorrect information by the scorer's table, which may have been confused because of an injury timeout from earlier in the game.

The Mad Ants consequently lost on a technical shot.

That's a terrible way to lose, no matter how you cut it.

The Mad Ants play at Texas again on Saturday night.
