Hackettstown, N.J. (Wednesday, January 23, 2013) – Playing the first back-to-back games of the season, the Jersey Express went to Staten Island, and beat the Vipers 113-101, and then returned home to face the NJ Bullets, in a 126-81 win, to claim NJ dominance.  The Express are on a 3 game winning streak, and move to 5-1 on the season, while also moving up the ABA Power Rankings to #17.

 

Saturday’s game was a highly contested one, as the Vipers held their home opener, and fell 113-101 to the Express.  Ja’Shon Mixon led the Express with 21, and Justin Hamilton, Devon Young, and William McDonough each finished with 15.  Jamal Webb had 13pts & 10 assists, and Almin Hodzic had 10pts & 12rebounds for the Express.

 

Sunday’s home game, featured more of the same, as the Express downed the NJ Bullets 126-81.  From the start, the Express jumped on the Bullets, who were short handed.  Ja’Shon Mixon continued his hot shooting, with 29pts, knocking down 7 3’s, from beyond NBA range.  Devon Young finished with 20, and Almin Hodzic 14, 10rbds & 3blks, along with Justin Hamilton’s 10 & 13rbds paced the Express, who had all 11 players score.  With 5 players scoring in double figures, 3 players with 10 or more rebounds, and 2 players with over 5asts, the Express are clearly a very deep team.

 

‘I’ve been very pleased with our play thus far.  We have been playing much like a team.  We are getting better motion on the offensive end, and we are getting better at recognizing our defensive assignments.  We will get even better as the season progresses; stated Head Coach Ray Ortiz.
