The Storyline

'The Game'
The Humber/Sheridan game – considered by many as the fiercest rivalry in the CCAA – resumes Friday for the 104th regular season edition. Since 2000, these two programs have combined for 13 provincial championships and 26 combined titles since 1985.

In postseason play, Humber owns a 12-5 (.706) record against the Bruins, including a 55-51 win in the 2001 CCAA national title game.

  • All-time, the Bruins are 32-18 against Humber at home during the regular season.
