Sumner’s big night helps Ants top Kings

Justin A. CohnJanuary 8, 2019

Edmond Sumner had yet to make his professional debut at this time last year, his recovery from the knee injury suffered at Xavier still going through its final days. Sumner’s grueling rookie season is a distant memory, though, as evidenced by his dominant performance Monday night in the Mad Ants’ 122-108 victory over the Stockton Kings.

Sumner, a second-year Indiana Pacers prospect, made 12 of 17 shots for a game-high 30 points.

“My body, it’s the most healthy I’ve ever been. It’s the best I’ve felt. My knees-wise, I have no issues,” Sumner said after playing 29 minutes, 32 seconds, and outscoring his season-average by nine points.
