CANTON, Ohio – A glaring lack of offense doomed the Mad Ants to their third straight loss.

The Canton Charge beat the Mad Ants 78-69 on Monday in an NBA D-League game at Canton Memorial Civic Center.

Fort Wayne (11-13) failed to score 20 points in three of the four quarters. Anthony Richadson led the Ants with 17 points, Luke Harangody and Sadiel Rojas scored 11 points apiece and Anthony Harris added 10. Harangody led the team with 10 rebounds.

Point guard Ron Howard set out again with an ongoing knee injury. The Ants also played without any NBA-assigned players, as Miles Plumlee returned to the Indiana Pacers and Doron Lamb returned to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Canton (15-10) was led by Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kevin Jones' 25 points and 11 rebounds. Former Purdue standout and former Mad Ants center JaJuan Johnson added 16 points for the Charge.

The Mad Ants return to Friday and Sunday in Erie.
