Under the bright lights of the WFCU Centre, the Express stars shined brighter. For the second straight game, Windsor was victorious by at least 30 points. The Windsor Express crushed the Saint John Mill Rats 104-74 Thursday evening in Windsor.

Prior to the game, the Express Nation, players and staff shared in a moment of silence to pay their respects to the passing of Victor Morris’ mother.

Morris has been released by the Express on terms of bereavement. Also released were Lester Prosper and Issac Kuon. In addition to the releases, Windsor acquired former London Lightning DeAndrew Thomas, Ryerson guard Richardo Dunkley and re-signed Erik Parker.

On the night, Mike Helms had 25 points, while Anthony Johnson had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Darren Duncan had 12 points and 13 assists to ensure another Windsor win.

For most of the opening quarter, Windsor and Saint John went nearly basket for basket – point for point. Helms sparked some offense for the Express, and Chris Commons ended the first with an alley-oop dunk.

In the second, Windsor’s offense continued to press. Saint John turnovers and fouls created easy baskets for the Express. When halftime came, Windsor had a 58-35 lead.

Windsor continued to extend its dominance in the second half. Throughout the third, at this juncture, the Express’ lead was a runaway train for the Mill Rats. There was no slowing down this engine. As the third quarter came to a close, Windsor had built an immense 37-point lead, and was on top 87-50.

Johnson ended the game with back-to-back three-pointers in the last minute of the fourth quarter. The Windsor Express rolled to a 104-74 win over the Saint John Mill Rats.

Windsor is back on the court Saturday night at 7pm when they take on the tough Oshawa Power.
