The Clash at the Colosseum IV...

Hats off this week to Dartis Willis & the Windsor Express for putting on what can only be seen as AN AMAZING EVENT this week.

This is the fourth year in a row for special event & included several new pieces.

A partnership with their local university netted (2) additional games, extending the event to a 3:00-10:00 PM basketball extravaganza.

The first game was a hard fought game between the Windsor & Laurier Women's teams, that saw Windsor come out victorious.

Next up were the same schools men's teams & what a game that was.  Down 6 with a minute to go Windsor came back & won by 3 on a last second, half court shot that banked in.

Then came the main event, incredible dancers during pre-game, a ceremonial jump ball delivered by Michigan State NCAA champ & Windsor native Mike Brkovich, an exciting 1st half and incredible half time show by the Enchantments (an original MoTown group).

The second half was incredible as the KW Titans played an amazing half to come from behind and take the lead by 8 with just a few minutes to go.  Big shots by Windsor brought them back & for the 4th consecutive year the Express were victorious.

4,000+ fans saw the events first hand and partnering with CIS Universities helped promote the game across the entire country.

So thankful for the efforts of all that pulled this off & look forward to next year's event as well!!!
