Revenge Game Against Rival

The rivalry between the Express and London Lightning continues tonight at the WFCU Centre in Windsor.

Since opening the season with a 99-97 loss in London, the Express have won three straight games.

Windsor Head Coach Bill Jones says they’ve got to do a better job keeping the Lightning’s big men off the glass this time around. “We gave up 36 offensive rebounds (in the season’s first game). That was a tough pill to swallow. So we’ve been concentrating on keeping their guys off the boards, playing hard, and trying to match their toughness and physicality.”

Jones adds that newly acquired point guard Tony Bennett is also playing now, which wasn’t the case in the first game of the season.

Tip off is set for 7pm.
