The Storyline
No. 6 Humber men's basketball (5-0, 1st West) will head to Kitchener on Nov. 15 to take on Conestoga (0-5, 10th West). Tip-off is set for 8 p.m.

Last Time Out
In front of a sold-out home crowd, the Hawks beat No. 15 Sheridan (4-2, 4th West) in the 120th edition of 'the Game', 81-79. At the time, the Bruins were the top-ranked program in the country after winning the Dawson Classic and Wayne Allison Fall Showdown.

Despite shooting a season-low 34.1 percent (28-of-82) from the floor, Humber came out with the win, picking up the victory on first-year head coach Samson Downey's birthday.

Fowzi Mohamoud finished with a season-high 19 points, while Jaylan Morgan and Curwin Elvis added 18 and 17 points, each.

He's Heating Up
JUCO and U Sport transfer Jaylan Morgan is shooting a scorching 61.1 percent (11-of-18) from beyond the arc, the highest percentage of any player recording at least 3.5 3-point attempts per game.

Exclusive Company
Curwin Elvis needs 53 points to become only the 19th player in program history to join the 600-point club. Elvis currently sits 25th all-time with 547, one point behind Humber legend Mark Croft (1992-96).
