Well, the St. John's Edge may have made it safe and sound to Ontario for their road trip but clearly something got lost in transit. The Edge delivered their worst performance of the season in this one losing 112-93 to the Windsor Express who led wire to wire. While the Edge looked defeated right from the opening tip.
1st quarter - St. John's would come out lifeless while the Express were firing on all cylinders shooting 9-12 in the first frame. Sam Muldrow was a one man wrecking crew dropping 16 points on the Edge in the quarter to go with seven rebounds. 39-13 Windsor after one.
2nd quarter - The Edge show some signs of life thanks to their second unit. Montay Brandon showed why he's the league's obvious Sixth Man of the Year as he came off the bench and led the way for St. John's as they trimmed the deficit and outscored Windsor 34-17 in the quarter. The Edge trail 56-47 at halftime.
3rd quarter - Once again it's the Express starters outperforming their Edge counterparts as they push the lead back up over twenty in the period. 83-64 Windsor lead heading into the final period.
4th quarter - With the game well in hand Windsor continued to hold St. John's at bay as they clearly wanted this one more tonight. Both teams traded buckets the rest of the way. Express take it easily 112-93.
+ St. John's were led by Montay Brandon(12 pts, 16 rebs and 5 assts) and Ahmad Thomas(14 pts, 3 assts and 3 stls)
+ Windsor were led by Chris Jones(22 pts, 10 assts and 6 rebs) and Muldrow(16 pts, 9 rebs and 2 assts)
+ The Edge bench continue to do their part as they outscored their Windsor opponents 52-33.
+ The Express managed to get to the free throw line 28 times in this one versus just 11 for the Edge
St. John's has no time to dwell on the loss as they will need to regroup for tonight's battle versus the Titans in Kitchener-Waterloo. The Edge lead the season series with KW 3-1.
