(WINDSOR, ON) – Windsor Express forward Quinnel Brown has been selected as the Most Valuable Player of the 2014-15 National Basketball League of Canada season. Brown becomes the first player in the history of the Windsor Express franchise to be named league MVP.

The 6′ 6” Chicago native was a catalyst for the Express this season, leading them to the best regular season record in the NBL for the second year in a row. Brown averaged 20.2 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game, over 30 regular season contests.

He led the team in points per game, rebounds per game, defensive rebounds, minutes played, field goals made, and total points.

Brown has stepped his game up even more in the postseason, averaging 24.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 4.9 assists to bring his team to the NBL Finals for the second straight season.

Quinnel Brown and the rest of his Express teammates host the Halifax Rainmen on Wednesday, April 15 at 7:00 pm, at the WFCU Arena, for Game 1 of the finals.

Game 2 will also be played in Windsor, on Friday, April 17.

Due to travel, the finals will adopt a 2-3-2 format. Halifax will host Games 3, 4, and 5, while Windsor is the host for Games 6 and 7, if necessary.

This is the first time Windsor and Halifax will meet in the finals. Halifax previously lost to London in in 2012. In all-time, head-to-head meetings, in the regular season, the Express and Rainmen are tied at 4-4.
