Force To Meet Charge In Post Season
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The East Division champion Fort Wayne Mad Ants (34-16), the No. 1 seed in the upcoming NBA Development League Playoffs, selected the eighth-seeded Reno Bighorns (27-23) as their opponent in the first round of the 2014 NBA D-League playoffs, it was announced today following a teleconference held with the league’s eight playoff-bound teams.

The Los Angeles D-Fenders (31-19), the No. 2 seed and the West Division champion, selected the sixth-seeded Santa Cruz Warriors (29-21), while the Iowa Energy (31-19), the Central Division champion and third seed, selected the Rio Grande Valley Vipers (30-20) as their first round opponent.  The Sioux Falls Skyforce (31-19), the fourth seed and the wild card team with the best regular season record, will play the seventh-seeded Canton Charge (28-22). 

The 2014 NBA D-League postseason will tip off on Tuesday, April 8, when the Vipers host the Energy at State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.  The schedule continues with two games on Thursday, April 10, when the Charge host the Skyforce in Canton and the Warriors host the D-Fenders in Santa Cruz.
