The battle of Ontario continues as the Brampton A's host the Windsor Express in Saturday night, NBL action.

The A's have began to turn things around after the starting the season 0-5 and have improved to 4-6, although they are still last place in the Central Division. The A's are 1-4 on the season at home, while the Express are 1-2 on the road.

The A's are coming off a successful trip to the Atlantic, beating the first place (standings for the week of November 30th-December 5th) Island Storm, 122-125. If the A's can find the same momentum and dominance when playing the Storm, they maybe able to beat the first place, Central Division defending Champs, the Windsor Express.
