Kitchener-Waterloo Titans lurch to loss in Windsor - Feb 13, 2017

The Kitchener-Waterloo Titans can't seem to stand their own success. After assembling wins in three of their previous four starts, the expansion National Basketball League of Canada squad faded badly down the stretch in Sunday's action, falling 85-74 to the Windsor Express. "We still have a lot of lapses," said Titans guard Adam Blazek (6'1''-PG-92, college: Gannon) after his team-leading 17-point performance. "We fall apart a little bit. If we are going to have them, we have to make sure those lapses are shorter." The Titans bolted to a 24-15 lead in the first quarter, including a whirlwind 12-0 run in the early going. But basketball at this level is about sustained pressure because if your team doesn't bring it for extended stretches through a 48-minute game, your opponent almost certainly will, said the Erie, Pa. native. It didn't help matters that the Titans were a little thin up front, missing both Jamell Harris and fellow forward Kevin Foster (6'8''-PF-89, college: Fresno St.) with lower-body injuries. Then, when K-W's six-foot-five swingman Adam Wing (6'4''-G-93, college: Evansville) left the game early with a groin pull, the undersized Titans had their hands full with Windsor's Warren Ward (6'5''-G-89) and Jernard Jarreau who combined for 17 of the Express's 44 rebounds. Fellow forward Juan Pattillo (6'7''-F-88, college: W.Kentucky) put the 'win' in Windsor as he poured in 17 points to lead the hosts before about 800 fans at the WFCU Centre. It was the Express's third straight victory as they improve to 8-11 (won-lost). K-W drops to 7-10. Windsor had just posted a narrow 135-134 OT escape versus home-court Orangeville on Saturday night, not returning home until about 3 a.m. on Sunday. That made for a sluggish start said Express coach Bill Jones. "It was a quick turnaround," he said. "It took us a full quarter to get our legs back under us. We used (the first quarter) as a shootaround I guess." A.J. Davis (6'6''-G-87, college: JMU) scored 15 points for the visitors. Titans head coach Serge Langis couldn't hide his frustration with his young team after Sunday's contest."We have to make shots. These guys are professional basketball players. We were missing layups. We were missing dunks. Our guys were not sharing the ball." Further to his point, the Titans shot a dismal 34 per cent from the field and recorded just 17 team assists on Sunday, to Windsor's 49 per cent shooting and 27 assists. "All these things were talked about," Langis said. "But for whatever reason, guys decided they were going to play one-on-one ball. We have to share the ball. It's a hard way to learn. It was flat-out selfish play and lack of execution." The Titans have only a couple days to sort out their troubles. They entertain the Atlantic Division's first-place team, the 14-3 Halifax Hurricanes, on Friday night at the Aud. Tipoff is 7 p.m.
