FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21 Alive) - Jamal Franklin clicked for 31 points to help the Mad Ants to a 133-113 win over the Iowa Energy Saturday night before 5,567 at the Memorial Coliseum.
The Ants earlier in the day announced a trade for 6-11 center Tim Olbrecht with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers for Fort Wayne's first round pick in the 2014 D-League draft.
The deal was made to cover the loss of Brian Butch earlier in the week to a team in the Phillipines.
Ron Howard added 26 points and Tony Mitchell 21 for the Ants, who moved to 23-14 with the win in their last game at home for 15 days and the next four games.
