Meanwhile, Wilson came up with big rebounds throughout the game and finished with a season-high 16 points and eight rebounds. He finished 7-for-9 from the field.

The Express led by as many as 11 in the second half. The game featured three ties and only one lead change.

Joe Retic II added 15 points, four rebounds and team-highs in assists (6) and steals (3) for the Express.

Mohamed Conde scored a game-high 25 points along with 16 rebounds, while his teammate Jorian Hudson had 22 points and 11 rebounds. Keevin Tyus added 11 points.
