As advertised, my Halloween outfit from Saturday:
If you don't get it, I was a box of Girl Scout cookies. Not just any Girl Scout cookies but the delicious thin mints.
The winner of last blogs contest was Josh Romine. He gets two lower level sideline scrip tickets for the Mad Ants upcoming season. Josh is also a winner by being a fellow 2000 Angola High School graduate and all around swell guy.
On a basketball note, things are getting hectic in the Coaches side of the office. They are watching hours and hours of tape to prepare for the NBA D-League Draft on Thursday. It sounds like Chris Hunter, Anthony Kent, and Ron Howard are all returning to the Mad Ants roster this season. It won't be a done deal until tomorrow night (which is the deadline for players to sign a D-League contract) but it looks good. Plus we have several nice options at potential allocated players which or "players of local significance" (played in college in Indiana, or H.S. locally). Again, can't give too much away but it looks like we will be seeing some Irish blood brought to the Mad Ants for the first time, one way or another.
Make sure you come out to the Mad Ants Draft Party at Crazy Pinz this Thursday, starting up at 6pm. The D-League Draft first round will be broadcast live on NBA TV starting at 7pm.
Also, be sure to check out the Mad Ants Coaches Show with our radio broadcaster Bill Hazen. The show is on at a new time slot on Mondays at 6pm. He will be joined weekly by Coach Meyer or another member of the Mad Ants basketball staff. The Show is broadcast on 100.1 FM TALKS.
Next blog will break down the Pistons potential NBA assigned players.
