Ray Ortiz
The Jersey Express got back on track, with a 108-88 win over the Staten Island Vipers Saturday. The Express are now 3-1 on the season, with the only loss coming at the hands of their division rival. The Express got off to a quick start, led by forward Charles Smith (6'7''-F, college: Bloomfield), who had his 1st start of the season, by knocking down a jump shot, finding his teammate for an assist, and grabbing 3 rebounds. A sweet alley-oop from point guard Jason Smith (6'1''-G) to center Almin Hodzic (6'10''-C-87, agency: FCM, college: Dominican, NY) capped the quick start that came in the first 2 minutes of the game, when the Express took a 7-0 lead.
Head Coach Ray Ortiz took over the reins, less than two weeks ago, and decided to shake things up a bit, by changing the line-up. Point guard Jason Smith led the charge, controlling the offense, and making sure everyone got involved in the action. Almin Hodzic & Charles Smith ended the 1st with 7pts each, and the Express took a 28-19 lead. Staten Island was led by Kareem Collins (6'3''-G/F-80, college: New Jersey City St.) with 11 in the qtr.
The 2nd quarter was fairly evenly played, with Bill McDonough (6'7''-F, college: Richard Stockton) led the Express with 6, and Lewis Monaco (5'11''-G-87, college: St.Joseph's, NY) paced the Vipers with 6. Bobby Lee (6'5''-F, college: Southern) collided with teammate McDonough, jumping for a loose ball, and caught an elbow to the head, which resulted in him being removed, for precaution for the game. Defense was the key for both teams, the Express being held to 23 & the Vipers 22. At the half, the Express held the lead 51-41.
Jason Smith came out strong in the 3rd qtr, dishing and swishing for 7pts & 3 assists, and Charles Smith continued his monster game, by grabbing 5rbds & 6pts in the qtr. Teshawn Byron (6'6''-G/F-88, college: Le Moyne-Owen) scored 7 for the Vipers. The Express lead grew to 78-64.
The 4th qtr started with Express guard Jashon Mixon (6'5''-F, college: Monroe CC) knocking down a quick 3, followed by Staten Islands Brendon Lyn matching it with his own. Jamal Webb (6'6''-G/F-85, college: SUNY Maritime) found Mixon for another 3, that ignited the crowd, when the Vipers turned the ball over, Hodzic was the recipient of an assist, and was fouled on the play, for a conventional 3pt play. The back-court of Jason Smith, and Ed Torres helped push the lead to as much as 22. Mixon knocked down another 3, and Mike Edghill (6'0''-G/F, college: Felician) 3-D score, capped an explosive 4th quarter.
The final score of 108-88 doesnt fully tell the story of 5 Express players scoring in double figures, with 11 of 12 players contributing to the scoring total. Jashon Mixon had 20, and Jason Smith finished with 16pts & 4asts. Charles Smith ended the night with a double-double with 13pts & 15rbds. Teshawn Byron led Staten Island with 18.
