Ron Howard Breaks NBA D-League Scoring Record in Win Over Armor

Simon Watts

Mad Ants stud Ron Howard became the all-time leading scorer in D-League history during the team's win over the Springfield Armor on Saturday night.

History was made on Saturday night. Ron Howard became the all-time leading scorer in NBA D-League history, following his 20-point performance as the Mad Ants defeated the Armor 114-90. He surpassed the previous record of 4,252 points, held by Bakersfield Jam swingman Renaldo Major.

Howard, 31, has been part of multiple NBA preseason rosters, but has yet to appear in a regular season game. Most recently, the guard participated in training camp with the Indiana Pacers.

A D-League veteran, "Mr. Mad Ant" has been playing in Fort Wayne since the 2007-2008 season. Yet, this season has still been one of his best. The former Valparaiso standout is averaging 20.5 points, shooting 47.6 percent from the field while averaging 4.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds in 34.4 minutes per contest.

At 31-16, the first seed Mad Ants appear poised for a deep playoff run and have a solid core of players around their resident star, such as Tim Ohlbrecht and Tony Mitchell.

Along with his D-League record of 4,621 points (and counting), Howard also holds multiple Mad Ants franchise records. He leads the team all-time in games played (244), rebounds (978) and steals (325).

Below is Howard's record-breaking shot:
