The Mad Ants are one step closer to turning a bitter loss into a win.

The NBA Development League granted Fort Wayne its protest over the ending of a 100-99 loss to the Texas Legends on Nov. 22. The decision will result in the teams replaying the last 0.9 seconds of the game at a date to be determined.

When the game resumes, the Ants will have the basketball with the score at 99-99. It's possible the ending could be replayed during the D-League Showcase since Fort Wayne is not scheduled to return to Texas this season.

The Ants lost on a free throw after they were assessed a technical foul for calling a timeout when they had none available. Fort Wayne coaches were originally told by the scorer's table that they had one timeout remaining before they called it. After considerable discussion, the scorer's table changed its book and referees called the technical foul.

The Ants should have been assessed a timeout for an injury to Ramon Harris earlier in the quarter, but was it was incorrectly recorded at the time.

The protest is only the second granted by the NBA D-League in its 13-year history.

The Mad Ants (now 1-2) will play at Sioux Falls at 8 tonight.
