Mad Ants Acquire Ryan Wittman

The Fort Wayne Mad Ants announced today that they have acquired Ryan Wittman from the available player pool.

Wittman, a 6-7 guard out of Cornell University, started the season playing overseas in Italy where he averaged 14.5 points per game in 14 games. As a senior at Cornell he averaged 17.5 points per game and was named Ivy League Player of the Year along with Honorable Mention All-American honors. He shot 43% from behind the three point arc and holds the record for most 3 point field goals made in a season (109).

Wittman fills the roster spot of Wayne Chism who was released last week due to a back injury. Wittman will join the team this week and is expected to play on Thursday night as the Mad Ants take on the Austin Toros in a 7:00pm game at the Memorial Coliseum.

 

NBA Development League
The NBA Development League, founded in 2001, is the NBA’s official minor league whose teams have direct affiliations to NBA franchises. For the 2010-11 season, the league will feature 16 teams – including the debut of the Texas Legends. A proven developer of talent, 20 percent of players in the NBA at the conclusion of the 2009-10 season boasted NBA D-League experience, while the league continues to develop coaches, referees, and front-office staff for the NBA and its teams. In fostering the league’s connection to the community, its teams, players and staff promote health and wellness, support local needs and interests, and assist in educational development through NBA D-League Cares programs. The NBA D-League also advances the game of basketball as the research and development arm of the NBA. Throughout the league’s 10th season, which tips off Friday, Nov. 19, fans can watch all NBA D-League games on NBA Futurecast, the free live Web-streaming initiative found at nba.com/futurecast.

  • “The President’s doomsday scenarios are of his own choosing,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., argued in response to Cutter’s email. “The sequester will cut 2.3 percent, or $85 billion, from the massive $3.55 trillion the federal government is projected to spend this year alone. To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”
