Mad Ants guard Ron Howard has been named co-Most Valuable Player of the NBA Development League.Howard shares the MVP award with former Iowa Energy guard Othyus Jeffers. The award, voted on by the D-League's head coaches, was announced today.

“There is no one more deserving of this award,” Mad Ants president Jeff Potter said. “Ron has been the MVP in every way possible for the Mad Ants and the NBA D-League this year. I'm so happy for him and his family to have achieved this level of success.”

Howard, a 6-foot-5 guard in his seventh season with the Ants, is averaging 20.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. The Mad Ants finished with the best record in the D-League at 34-16 and are playing a best-of-three series finals series with the Santa Cruz Warriors this week.

After playing at Valparaiso University, Howard earned as spot with the Mad Ants after an open tryout and went on to become the D-League's all-time leading scorer and earned the nickname, “Mr. Mad Ant.”

Jeffers, also a 6-5 guard, averaged 20.9 points and 9.9 rebounds per game this season before being signed to a contract by the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves.
