Shorthanded Express Have Enough to Stop Brampton

December 13, 2014 - National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) - Windsor Express News Release

(WINDSOR, ON) The Windsor Express were without forwards Chris Commons and Kevin Loiselle on Saturday night, but fought their way to a 114-107 victory over the Brampton A's at the Powerade Centre.

Commons and Loiselle were serving their one game suspensions as a result of incidents in Sunday's loss in Mississauga.

The team leaned on DeAndre Thomas and Quinnel Brown and both delivered, to improve the Express record to a league-best 8-2.

Windsor started off with a 16-10 lead, being carried by Tony Bennett, who had 11 of the team's points to open the game.

From there, Thomas and Brown took over.

Thomas had a season high 33 points in the victory, followed closely by Brown's 30.

Windsor held a 22-14 lead after the first quarter and that was the difference in the game, as both the second and fourth quarters resulted in tie scores for the frame.

Brampton (4-7) had a 31-30 advantage in the third.

Cavell Johnson led the A's with a 24 point, eight rebound performance.

It's back to Mississauga on Tuesday, December 16th for the Windsor Express as this four game road swing continues at the Hershey Centre at 7:00pm.

The next home game is Saturday, December 27th, also against Mississauga at 7:00pm at the WFCU Centre.
