Interesting Fact: Jersey Express SC are named after the famed Jersey Express basketball team of the ABA (not the cool retro one you’re thinking of). Founded in 2005 under the name Newark Express, the Jersey Express have won five division titles during their 14 seasons of existence, or so I’m told. Also, according to their Wikipedia page, they play their home games at Centenary College and Malcolm X Shabazz High School. This is quite a feat for a minor league basketball such as themselves to play home games simultaneously at two different locations. A true test of their team’s depth.
