The vibe at the WFCU Centre was electric but the Lightning zapped the energy out of the area with 103-97 win over the Windsor Express. "That's a championship calibre team." said head coach Bill Jones. "They want to go back to back and you can see the urgency in the way they play."
A season-high 5,432 fans attended the game including Tik Tok influencer MD Motivator.
The Express drop to 3-5 on the season with four of their losses coming at the hands of the Lightning. "I would rather play them to be able to gauge what we are and what we need in terms of personnel." Jones said.
Justin Jackson led the London offence with 21 points. Elijah Lufile came off the bench to score 20 points while pulling down a game-high 14 rebounds.
Billy White led the Express for the second straight game with 20 points and 8 rebounds. Check out his 2nd half dunk.
