Windsor Honour Ford V-8s with Decisive Win
(WINDSOR, ON) On a night when Windsor turned back the clock to honour the Windsor Ford V-8s, the Express kept their home winning streak in tact with a 104-90 victory over the Brampton A's.
Windsor improved their mark to 9-0 at the WFCU Centre and a league-best 12-4 overall.
"We are trying to build a fan base and a brand." Head Coach and Director of Basketball Operations, Bill Jones said after the game. "We have always said we refuse to lose at home and right now we are doing the right things to make that happen."
The game got off to a sluggish start, the Express rebounded to take a 23-22 advantage in the first quarter.
But things really swung in the second, when Windsor jumped out early and turned their one point lead into an 11 point advantage at halftime, 52-41.
In the second half, each team took a quarter, with Brampton netting a 31-30 decision in the third, but Windsor put the game away with a 22-18 fourth quarter to seal the victory.
Quinnel Brown had 16 in the first half and a game high 30 points.
It was the third time this season Brown has reached the 30 point plateau.
Chris Commons followed with a double-double, netting 17 points and 16 assists.
Windsor moves 1.5 games ahead of the London Lightning in the Central Conference following the triumph and extends their cushion over the A's to five games.
The next test for the Express will be the only visit from the Saint John Mill Rats to the WFCU Centre on Saturday, January 10th at 7:00pm.
