Posted by Monday, December 1st, 2014 08:36 pm GMT +00:00

image (1)New Jersey – November 30h, 2014 – The Jersey Express fell to the Steel City Yellow Jackets of Pittsburgh, 114-125, and fell to 0-3 on this early ABA season.  The Yellow Jackets are currently 7-0, and stand at the top fo the division.

The Express, who dressed just 8 players Sunday, had several opportunities to upset the Yellow Jackets, but could not get over the hump!  After trailing by 13 in the 1st quarter, the Express played the Yellow Jackets even the rest of the way.  Marred by the ABA 3-D rule, 3 straight turnovers in the first 5 minutes of the game, put the Express in a hole, that was tough to get out of.

Playing without its starting forward, Sam Furr, and Center, Almin Hodzic, backup Center Hashim Bailey pulled down a season high 18 rebounds, and added 10 points, for his 1st double-double of the season.  The Express had 6 players score in double figures, led by returning point guard Donald Hennie (Englewood) with 26, Zaki Thomas (Paterson) added 23, Lucky Armstrong (Jersey City) 19, Jason Smith (Garfield) and Kirk Bailey (Freeport) tallied 15 apiece.

The talent on paper for the Express is exciting, and once the pieces come together, this should make for an exciting team, and successful season.

The Express travel to New York Sunday, for a showdown with the Bronx Holy Flames.  Hooperstown, 300 E. Sanford Blvd, Mount Vernon, NY @ 8:30pm will be the place.
