The Storyline
No. 9 Humber men's basketball (4-0, 1st West) will conclude its two-game homestand Wednesday evening when No. 1 Sheridan (3-1, 2nd West) visits the North Campus Gym. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. and will be streamed live on the Hawks Sports Network.

Last Time Out
A game-high 25 points from Jaylan Morgan led Humber to a win over Lambton (1-2, 7th West) in its 2018 home opener, 102-96. The Hawks shot a season-high 52.6 per cent (41-of-78) from the floor.

'The Game'
The Humber/Sheridan game – considered by many as the fiercest rivalry in the CCAA – resumes Wednesday for the 103rd regular-season edition. Since 2000, these two programs have combined for 13 provincial championships and 26 combined titles since 1967.

In postseason play, Humber owns a 12-4 (.750) record against the Bruins, including a 55-51 win in the 2001 CCAA national title game.

Scouting Sheridan

  • After winning the Dawson Classic and Wayne Allison Fall Showdown, the Bruins began the 2018 season as the top-ranked program in the nation.
  • Trailing by as many as 21 points in the first half against Redeemer (2-2, 6th West), the Bruins comeback fell short, dropping the game, 112-109.
  • Through four games, Sheridan is averaging a league-best 122.3 PPG.
  • All-time, the Bruins are 23-29.

Previous Meeting
Leading by 12 after 30 minutes of play, Humber's foul trouble allowed Sheridan to chip away at the lead. A buzzer-beater prayer from the Bruins tied the game and forced overtime. In the extra frame, DeQuon Cascart took over the game, hitting four big free throws before stealing an in-bound pass to ice the game.

Home Is Where the Heart Is
All-time, Humber owns a 29-23 (.558) record against the Bruins at the North Campus Gym, winning eight of their last 11 meetings.

Options
Three Humber players are currently averaging 15 or more points-per-game this season. Curwin Elvis leads the team with 17.0 PPG, followed by Kevin Otoo with 15.5, and Jaylan Morgan with 15.0.

Thievery
Led by Micqueel Martin and Kevin Otoo, the Hawks sit third in the league in steals, averaging 12.5 per game.

What's Next?
