Hansbrough, McKinney-Jones lead the way.

Thursday, March 16, 2017 12:11 am
Tyler Hansbrough and Trey McKinney-Jones scored 25 points each to lead the Fort Wayne Mad Ants to a 123-122 win over Northern Arizona on Wednesday at the Prescott Valley Events Center in Prescott Valley, Arizona. It was Hansbrough's best game since joining the Mad Ants earlier this month as he also pulled down 12 rebounds. The Suns, who trailed 96-84 entering the fourth quarter, had a chance to win the game but a three-pointer by Xavier Silas at the buzzer was no good. Fort Wayne finished 3-2 on its road trip. They now have four straight home games starting at 7 p.m. Saturday against Delaware.

The Mad Ants had a balanced scoring attack as four other players besides Hansbrough and McKinney-Jones scored in double figures. Jordan Loyd and Marquis Teague scored 18 points each while Travis Leslie had 17 and Alex Poythress had 16.

Poythress and McKinney-Jones each collected eight rebounds while Teague led Fort Wayne with nine assists. Silas led Northern Arizona with 29 points.

The win improved the Mad Ants to 25-18 while the Suns fell to 21-22. Fort Wayne is in third place in the Central Division, 1 1/2 games behind the Canton Charge and seven games behind Raptors 905. The Mad Ants, who have the fourth best record in the Eastern Conference,  have seven games remaining.
