ETOBICOKE, ONT: Humber's stretch of four games in nine days continues this weekend when the Lambton Lions (0-4, 8th West) appear at the Humber Athletic Centre for the first time this season.
After losing consecutive games against two of the top ranked programs in the country, the Hawks (3-2, 6th West) are returning to Etobicoke after picking up two wins against Sault College (0-8, 9th West) last weekend. Fifth-year forward Tyrone Dickson (Scarborough) finished with a season-high 23 points in Humber's 76-60 game one win. 13 Humber Hawks scored in Humber's 85-48 game two victory.
Fresh off the first OCAA medal in Lambton basketball division one history, the Lions have struggled to begin the 2016-17 season. Despite being led by fifth-year guard Branden Padgett and his 22.3 points-per-game, the Lions have been unable to capture their first win of the season. Their score differential of -61 is the third worst in the OCAA.
Over their last eight meetings, the Hawks own a 7-1 record against the Lions, including an 89-81 victory at home last season. Baljyot Judge (Brampton) tied a career-high with 18 points in the win for Humber, while Gibson Eduful (Toronto) recorded a double-double with 11 points and 11 assists. Mike Lucier, who signed a pro contract to play with Dragons Rhoendort in Germany, finished with a game-high 25 points for Lambton.
