(WINDSOR, ON) – Kirk Williams Jr scored a game high 23 points against his old club, as the Windsor Express fought off Mississauga for a 101-90 victory, Saturday night. Williams was acquired by the Express (17-7) from Mississauga (6-17) on December 11, in exchange for a first round pick in the 2015-2016 NBL draft.

In his previous 12 games with Windsor, Williams had averaged 4.3 points in almost 10 minutes of play but earned over 32 minutes in the latest match-up.

Windsor pulled out a 22-19 first quarter lead and increased that by doubling the Power in the second, 28-14, for a 50-33 advantage at halftime. Williams had 15 at the half, helped by DeAndre Thomas’ 13 points.

The second half gave Mississauga new life, cutting a 21 point Windsor lead down to 14 by the end of the third, and they came as close as five points, with just over six minutes left in the fourth. JaMarcus Ellis nailed a jumper to stretch the Express lead to nine, and extend Windsor’s home winning streak to 12 games.

Ryan Anderson equalled Williams with 23 total points for the Express.

Windsor now leads the London Lightning by three games in the Central Conference and pushed the Power 10.5 games behind.

The Express will be back at the WFCU Centre on February 4 against London at 7:00 pm.
