The Storyline
No. 4 Humber men's basketball (6-0, 1st West) will conclude its first-half road schedule Nov. 21 at UTM (3-4, 9th West). Tip-off is set for 8 p.m.

Last Time Out
The Hawks kept their perfect season intact Nov. 14, defeating Conestoga (0-7, 11th West) on the road, 85-69. Despite allowing the Condors to score 31 points in the final frame, Humber cruised to its sixth straight win to begin the season. Freshman guard Khalid Ismail was spectacular coming off the bench, finishing with a career-high 15 points on seven-of-nine (77.8 percent) shooting from the floor in 13 minutes of game time.

Scouting UTM

  • The Eagles enter the game with a 3-4 record, picking up their only victories against winless Sault and Conestoga.
  • Gregory Roberts sits second in the league in scoring, averaging 28.0 PPG on 43.5 percent (57-of-131) shooting from the floor.
  • 2017-18 OCAA rookie of the year Zamam Khan returns for his second season and has gone three straight games recording a double-double.

Previous Meeting
On Feb. 7, Humber extended its win streak to four with a win at UTM, 115-72 – improving to 67-0 when hitting the century mark in regular season play. Jerome Gayle, DeQuon Cascart and Curwin Elvis all finished in double-digit scoring.

Shooting Woes
After shooting 45 percent or higher from the floor through their first four games, the Hawks haven't cracked the 40 percent mark in consecutive contests. Through six games, Humber sits tenth in the league, shooting 44.5 percent (63-of-188) from the floor.

Second Chances
Humber leads the division in offensive rebounds, averaging 17.8 ORBG. Freshman Kevin Otoo leads the way with 2.2 ORBG.

D-FENCE
Humber's defence is holding opponents to 38.3 percent (166-of-433) shooting from the floor, and 29.6 percent (47-of-159) from beyond the arc.

What's Next?
