Express have important home stand after dropping two straight
posted by Josh MacDonald
Oshawa beat Windsor 106 – 87 at General Motors Centre in a game were seven players scored 11 or better for the home team.
The Express’s defence did little to disturb Oshawa with just 3 steals in the game. On offence, more scoring opportunities for others must be created considering the team has not reached 20 assists in their first three games.
Mike Helms had a game high 23 points as he continues his impressive shooting. Going four for seven from beyond the arch. Helms can take care of the ball as well, having no turnovers for a second straight game.
Windsor’s Isaac Kuon and Greg Surmacz showed they are road ready battling hard in the loss. Surmacz had another double double with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Kuon caused at least two turnovers to go along with 14 points.
This was a game where outside Windsor’s top four scorers the next best player had seven. Anthony Johnson has to be commended for his steady play, scoring in double figures every game while continuing to do his fair share on the boards.
The season is young and this set of games on November 16th and 18th will be a true test for Windsor. Next Monday the express can be sitting pretty at 3-2 or be searching for answers after a fourth straight loss. This will be the last home games for the express in November as they go on the road visiting Saint Johns and Halifax then travel to New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
