The Storyline
No. 14 Humber men's basketball will conclude its Fall semester home schedule Wednesday night when the UTM Eagles (0-7, 11th West) visit the North Campus Gym. The game will be streamed live on the Hawks Sports Network at 8 p.m. with Mohammad Khosroshahi, Mark Harrison on the call and Danielle Dupuis reporting from the sidelines.

Last Time Out
After a slow start against Fanshawe (5-4, 6th West), Humber needed 47 second-half points to come-from-behind and win, 72-68. Trailing by 18 at the half, the Hawks recorded the largest comeback in the Patrick Au era. Kenny Ejim finished with 22 points, his sixth 20-plus game of the season – while C.J. Bennett added 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Block Party
After a season-high nine blocks on Sunday, the Hawks sit second in the OCAA West division, averaging 4.0 bpg.

From Deep
Humber has made 74 (36.8 percent) 3-pointers this season, the highest mark in the west division. In 18 games last year, the Hawks finished 98-for-321 (30.5 percent).

Scouting UTM
The UTM men's basketball program is in its inaugural year and has been placed in the ultra-competitive west division.  The Eagles are searching for their first program win, and after seven games they are averaging 61.5 ppg, the lowest mark in the conference.

Offensively, Zamam Khan is averaging 21.7 ppg, the fifth-best average in the league.

Welcome
Wednesday will be the first time the UTM Eagles play an OCAA league game at the North Campus Gym.

Humber 500
Dating back to 1978, the Humber basketball program has had 311 student-athletes don the blue and gold. Needing only 25 points, C.J. Bennett has the chance to become the 29th player to score 500 career points.

Creating a Winning Culture
Humber has posted a 172-23 (.882) regular season record since the start of the 2006-07 season, the highest win percentage in the province over the last 12-plus seasons.

The Hawks have posted an 89-9 (.908) at the North Campus Gym during that span, which also represents the highest win percentage in the province.
