The Express (8-2) aims to kick-off March just as it did in February, with a win over The Bronx Holy Flames. The Express bested the Holy Flames, 110-79, in the last meeting between the two teams.
The Express is coming off a three-point game loss to Staten Island Vipers on Saturday, but has its sights on a third win against the Holy Flames. Veteran Admin Hodzic (Budd Lake, NJ) delivered a game-high of 41 points against the Holy Flames in their last meeting. Hodzic wants to end the season on a high note “Saturday’
“As the regular season comes to a close, we are on our way to the playoffs. We would like to thank our fans, sponsors, and staff, including Shabazz High School, as well as Weequahic High School. As the spokesman of our great team the Jersey Express, We would love to have all of Newark and the surrounding City's support us as we travel to the playoffs, by following us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and all social media. With that being, next season we can sell out and bring job opportunities to the community.” Jeffrey R Brown Sr., Spokesman
“This being possibly our last home game of the season, is very important to the players. They know what’s at stake and I’m sure they will use this as a measuring stick to show how far we have come as a team. We need to continue to progress and not pick up any bad habits going into the playoffs.” Ray Ortiz, Head coach
The owner of the Jersey Express Marsha Blount stated “I am very excited with the success of the regular season, and to be heading to the playoffs once again. With the partnerships that we've formed with the Power of One Foundation, and Insight, we are able to bring you Newark's own Treach of the world famous Naughty by Nature as our celebrity 13th player, along with Veronica Bailey of Newark singing the national anthem, Newark's own DJ Terrell on the turntables, and pastor Ingalls, and finally the Tribe of Judah choir performing at halftime. We begin the playoffs on March 15th, and are looking to bring an ABA championship to New Jersey."
