I thought it was a great night for the Mad Ants organization. From the game operations to the play on the court, I think there has been few nights better than that one. Turning to the hoops, I don't see how Mad Ants fans are not excited about what they see from our team this season. I thought our veterans were very good, and I think our newcomers added a lot of energy and fine execution to get us the win.
The Ants led the game the entire time, but let Sioux Falls come back and make it close in the end. I think two things led to that -- first, the Skyforce are a much improved team, and, second, those types of lapses occur in the first game of the season. In fact, I think the first game is always the toughest to win, and we now have that taken care of.
I am very excited about this team and the level of talent on it right now. If we can shore up some of the simple defensive mistakes that we were making which gave the Skyforce far too many easy baskets, we will be a stout defensive team.
So, back to the blogging for me, and I hope back to visiting us for every game at the Coliseum for you readers who are able to do so.
