Hurricanes Blow Through Windsor

Released: December 20, 2018

(WINDSOR, ON) - The loss column ticked up again for the Windsor Express after dropping a 127-116 decision to the visiting Halifax Hurricanes last night. The defeat lowers the Windsor record to 2-7 on the season.

The see-saw battle witnessed Halifax take a 1st quarter lead 38-23 and then the Express closed the gap to just 3 points, 58-55, by halftime.

A dominant 3rd quarter by Windsor positioned them with a single-point margin, 94-93, heading into the final 12 minutes. However, the team ran out of steam as the Hurricanes registered a 34-22 final period.

Windsor's player of the game, Horace Wormely, put up 24 points and 9 assists in the losing effort. Former G-Leaguer Tyrrel Tate contributed 18 while DeAndre Thomas had another strong performance off the bench for the Express with 16 points and 7 boards.

The Express continues to suffer from a lack of ball movement. Collectively, the Hurricanes logged 28 assists on the night while Windsor managed just 18. As well, Halifax cleared the glass far more effectively than the Express, with 13 offensive rebounds and 12 second chance points and 48 total boards to Windsor's 28.

The real difference between the teams was their shooting from the floor. While both were fairly dismal, 53.6% to 49.4% for Halifax, the two clubs were almost identical from the penalty stripe and from 3-point range. To Windsor's credit, though, they did battle back from an 18 point deficit to make a game of it.

The Express will now ready themselves for the Island Storm (2-4) on Sunday at 2pm.
