Quick Pre-Game Update

Okay, time again for my monthly blog.... With four home games left, the Mad Ants have loaded up on some new talent which I am sure would have been a tremendous help had we had this line up from the start.

Mad Ants take on Erie tonight (Thursday) and again on Sunday. The starters for the Ants for tonight will most likely be:

Guards: Anthony Goods, Ron Howard

Forwards: Cam Jones, Darnell Lazare

Center: Vernon Macklin (on loan from the Detroit Pistons)

New faces playing tonight will be: Vernon Macklin assigned by the Detroit Pistons. Vernon is a 6'10 four man who was a second round draft pick and played his college ball at Florida. Vernon has a great attitude about his Mad Ants assignment and is looking forward to a chance to get some heavy minutes tonight.

Another new addition to the Mad Ants is Stephen Graham. Many Mad Ants fans will remember Graham from his stint with the Pacer's a few seasons ago. Graham is a 6'6 wing man who has some real size to him (muscle not fat!) and will be a welcome addition to the team. He too will make his debut tonight, after just arriving in Fort Wayne yesterday with one practice under his belt which is just "life in the D".

Former Mad Ant Marvin Phillips JR is playing for Erie and was kind enough to do a quick interview for the Martz Madness blog. Marvin was an office and crowd favorite and we are always happy to see him in Fort Wayne.

See everyone tonight! And remember to bring pop tabs on Sunday for the Ronald McDonald House Tabathon to win a free breakfast sandwich from McDonald's and a chance to sit court side!
