After last night's dominant win in Niagara (125-116), the Orangeville A's (11-23) were set to host the Windsor Express (18-15) at the Athlete Institute. The A's currently sit 3 games behind Niagara in the Central Division standings.

It was an up and down game for the A's today, after finishing the 2nd half on a flat note they were able to outscore Windsor 35-28 in the 3rd quarter. Much of the A's success came from the red hot shooting of A's guard Dominic Cheek who went 4/5 from the 3PT line in the 3rd quarter. Cheek would finish the game with a respectable 17 points and 4 rebounds.

Tonight's game came down to the wire, seeing the A's lead by just 1 point with 1:33 remaining, 102-101.
