WINDSOR, Ont. -- A new professional basketball franchise in Windsor, Ont., has settled on a name.

NBL Canada officials say the team has been christened the Windsor Express.

Its logo is a basketball and a black train with flames shooting out the back.

The league says it will make an announcement Wednesday at the Spirit of Windsor train in Dieppe Park.

Windsor's expansion bid was approved late last month.

Some speculate the team will play out of the WFCU Centre but there's no official word yet.
