James Mays goes for 25 and 11 in D-League Loss

Springfield Armor

Although Ben Uzoh has played for the Nets and Raptors, compiling a triple double at the end of last season, he may not be the first Springfield Armor player called up by an NBA team. It could be James Mays, who's never played a regular season NBA game, the closest he's come being some preseason games with the Nets. Mays has been a monster off the boards for the Armor all season.

Saturday night, Mays was at it again. He grabbed 21 boards to go with his 25 points (on 28 shots, seven of which were blocked) as the Armor lost again on the road to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants (who play in the Allen County War Memorial Hall, where the Pistons played in the 1950's as the Zollner Pistons!) Mays is unlikely to start or be a rotation player in the NBA but while with the Nets he gained a reputation as a tough practice player.

Uzoh, who recently had a tryout with the Wizards, had eight assists and eight rebounds but scored only nine points. Willie Reed, the 22-year-old PF, had 16 points, but shot 5-for-15. Overall, the Armor, now 3-4, shot 34 percent overall and only eight percent (not a typo) from three. Miles Plumlee, sent down by the Pacers, led the Mad Ants with 28 and 10.
