(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Express remain on top of the NBL standings by defeating the Brampton A’s last night at the WFCU Centre 118-106. Still flying high from the Clash at the Colesseum, the Express played to almost 700 appreciative fans.

Windsor hit 49% from the floor plus an astounding 41% from outside the arc. Chris Commons led the way with 26 points on 10 for 17 shooting. Commons also picked up a double-double by pulling down 10 boards in a strong defensive effort.

Point guard Darren Duncan continued his hot streak by registering a double-double as well. Duncan dished 13 assists and dropped 16 points in the win.

A third double-double was recorded as the ever-present Quinnel Brown grabbed 11 rebounds and put up 16 points. And, not to be outdone, Stefan Bonneau was a standout on offense as he scored 24 points, including 5 for 8 from downtown.

Head coach Bill Jones got a lot of help from the bench as the substitutes contributed 22 points and 20 rebounds in the Express victory.

Next up, Windsor will be heading to Brampton for a rematch with the A’s on January 25, and then a visit to London to take on the Lightning on February 6. The next night Windsor will return home to face their 401 Rivals, to complete the home and away match-up.
