The Mad Ants look to even their record tonight before heading out on a four-game road trip. The Ants (1-2) play the Iowa Energy (0-1) at 7:30 tonight in an NBA Development League game in Memorial Coliseum. The teams play again at 7 p.m. Saturday in Iowa.

Fort Wayne broke into the win column with a strong defensive effort in an 86-75 win over the Canton Charge on Wednesday at Memorial Coliseum. Veteran guards Walker Russell Jr. (25 points) and Ron Howard (20 points) helped pave the way, but the team also benefited from top draft pick JaJuan Johnson (16 points, 14 rebounds) and the play of newcomer Tony Mitchell.

Mitchell, a 6-foot-6 forward from the University of Alabama, scored nine points with eight rebounds, five steals, three assists and two blocks.

Howard leads the Ants with an early-season average of 23.7 points per game. Russell averages 20.3 points per game and Johnson is at 11.0 points and 10.3 rebounds.

After playing in Iowa on Saturday, the Ants have road games at Springfield on Dec. 7, Maine on Dec. 8 and Canton on Dec. 12.
