About The Express

The Jersey Express - Since 2005

The Jersey Express is a professional basketball team in the American Basketball Assocaition. The team was formed in 2005 as the Newark Express, and have since captured 2 Northeast Division Titles in 2013 and 2016. The Express play all home games at the Wayne YMCA in Wayne, New Jersey.

        If you are an NBA fan from New Jersey who always roots for the home team, then you have likely either defected to the New York Knicks by now, or given up on professional basketball altogether. It’s a decision that thousands faced years ago when the once New Jersey Nets packed their things and left for Brooklyn, leaving a gap for professional basketball fans in New Jersey – a gap that Marsha Blount and her Jersey Express can fill. Blount is the owner of The Jersey Express, an official member of the American Basketball Association (ABA) since 2005.  Blount, who lives in Denville and has owned the team for eight years, has seen coaches come and go and the game evolve. She’s watched up-and-coming players take their game overseas in far-off places like Japan. Everyone is not going into the NBA, and I offer that alternative and opportunity for players to hone their skills,” says Blount The team values its role in the community, and players are required to interact with fans, take pictures sign autographs. With most of the returning starters coming back and with pick up of key free-agents, 2018 seems to be the best shot the Express have at an ABA title since their inception in 2005.,
