Mad Ants ready for Drive

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

The Mad Ants are preparing for their 7 p.m. game at Memorial Coliseum against the Grand Rapids Drive. The Mad Ants (11-10) have lost four straight games and eight of their last nine. They lost the only previous meeting with the Drive (11-11), 103-101 on Dec. 16 at Memorial Coliseum.

Something to keep an eye on: The matchup between Fort Wayne's Jarrod Uthoff, who is averaging 18 points and 8.4 rebounds, and the Drive's Landry Nnoko, who is averaging 15.2 points and 10.9 rebounds. And at 6-foot-10, Nnoko has an inch on Uthoff.

The Drive has won four of its last five but is coming off a 97-90 loss to Maine.
