(LONDON, ON) – A 38-point fourth quarter sunk the Windsor Express as they fell to London 93-82 on Wednesday night, in their first game of the 2014 schedule.
Windsor (14-7) clutched a two point lead at halftime and expanded it to six after three, before being outgunned 38-21 in the final frame.
The absence of NBL leading scorer Stefan Bonneau was certainly felt by Windsor, but Darren Duncan played his usual solid contest, with 16 points and 8 assists, in his place before fouling out.
The newest member of the Express, Dominique Buckley, had 12 points in 22 minutes in his Windsor debut.
Kevin Loiselle and Chris Commons each had 10 assists in the feisty game, which saw two Express players receive technical fouls.
The day wasn’t without some good news.
Before the contest, Windsor Head Coach, Bill Jones was named NBL Coach of the Month, leading the Express to a 9-2 record in December.
Windsor now gets set for a busy weekend when they will face the Mississauga Power on Friday and Sunday, at the WFCU Centre.
Friday’s game will commence at 7:00 pm, while things tip off Sunday at 2:00 pm.
Tickets are available at the TekSavvy Box Office in the WFCU Centre or by phone at 1-866-969-WFCU.
