Anigbogu assigned to Fort Wayne Mad Ants

Ike Anigbogu once again was assigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants on Wednesday. They have two home games this weekend, Friday against the Windy City Bulls and Sunday against the Lakeland Magic.

Anigbogu has been used in just seven Pacers games, including a four-minute appearance Sunday in a home loss to Minnesota. He made 2 of 3 shots and 3 of 4 free throws for a career high seven points.

Anytime Anigbogu can get up to Fort Wayne to get on-court work and game reps in, the Pacers should take advantage. He’s played just 21 minutes total in 37 Pacers games.

The 19-year-old is raw offensively and will greatly benefit from time in Fort Wayne as opposed to sitting the bench with the Pacers.

Pacers President Kevin Pritchard back on media day in late September: “I want to see him out on the court. He is a defensive presence right now, today. That’s what he’ll bring.”

In Fort Wayne, Anigbogu has averaged 6.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 23.8 minutes per game. He started in all seven games.
