Last Time Out
The Hawks cruised to a two-game sweep on their southwest Ontario road swing, defeating St. Clair 96-86 on Jan. 12, and Lambton 100-82 on Jan. 13.

Scouting UTM

  • The Eagles are in their second season of OCAA action with an overall record of 5-27 (.156) since the beginning of the 2017-18 campaign.
  • Through nine games, Gregory Roberts is leading the league in scoring, averaging 25.9 ppg. Roberts dropped back-to-back 40-point games to open the 2018-19 year.
  • 2017-18 OCAA Rookie of the Year Zamam Khan returns for his second year and has recorded six double-doubles this season.

Automatic
Forward Jaylan Morgan has been the most efficient scorer in the OCAA this season, shooting 65.7 per cent (71-of-108) from the floor. In four of his last five games, Morgan has shot over 70 per cent from the field.

He has hit at least one three-pointer in every game this season and is leading the league in three-point percentage (58.8 per cent).

Century Mark
When scoring 100-plus points in a regular season game, the Hawks are 71-0 all-time.

The Downey Era
The Coach Downey era is off to a red-hot start, with Humber winning its first 11 games under his guidance. Coach Downey needs one more win to tie the program record for most victories to begin a season by a first-year coach [12 in 2010 by Shawn Collins].

From Downtown
Second-year guard Fowzi Mohamoud sits 11th all-time on Humber's three-point list, tying Dexter Miller with 55 three-pointers made through 31 career games.

Moving On Up
Senior Curwin Elvis recorded his 600th point in Humber's 100-82 win over Lambton. In 81 career regular season games, Elvis sits 18th all-time on Humber's career scoring list.

Home Is Where The Heart Is
Since the beginning of the 1990 season, the Hawks are 205-24 (.895) at the North Campus Gym.
