LONDON, ON – The Windsor Express (8-11) delivered London (16-2) their second loss of the season, dumping the Lightning 108-102.
The win is some revenge for the Express, who lost 86-66 to London the night before.
Windsor stormed out of the gate, riding a 30-point second quarter to a 51-40 lead at the half. That lead ballooned in the third, as the Express pulled ahead 83-65.
But London staged a fierce comeback and the Lightning clawed back to within two points with 1:22 to go in the game. Clutch free throws by Kevin Loiselle and Darren Duncan helped seal the victory for the Express.
Duncan closed the game with 25 points and 8 assists, one of six Windsor players to score in double figures. Chris Commons led the way with a game high 26 points. Lester Prosper ripped down 13 rebounds, followed closely by Loiselle, with 12.
Windsor now prepares for the start of 2013, when they travel to Montreal for a three game series against the Jazz.
Catch the next Express home game at the WFCU Centre January 18th against last year’s runner up champions, the Halifax Rainmen. The Express will face the Rainmen at home, for the first time since beating them at their opening game, at 7PM EST.
