Give Me That Board

The Falcons (7-1, 2nd West) are winners of four straight, their last loss coming Nov. 8 at Mohawk, 77-76. Mikhaila Wright leads all Fanshawe scorers, averaging 14.1 points per game.
As a team, the Falcons rank second in the league behind Humber in field goal percentage, shooting 42.4 percent (240-of-556) from the floor.
In its 65-53 win against Redeemer, Wright finished with 14 points and 15 rebounds.
In the 2017 OCAA semifinal, Humber came away with 70-51 victory over Fanshawe, before eventually capturing its third straight provincial title. Aleena Domingo finished with a 17-point, ten-rebound double-double in the win, while Ali Vlasman finished with a team-high 26 points for the Falcons.
Sitting at 66 straight wins, only Algonquin – 67 straight from Nov. 11, 2011, to Jan. 15, 2015 – has put together a longer win streak in OCAA history than Humber.
The Hawks have won three-straight OCAA titles from 2014-17, one away from joining Algonquin, who won four-straight from 2011-15.
Two-time CCAA Player of the Year Ceejay Nofuente became the first Humber women's basketball player to score 1,000 career points.
Since the beginning of the 2016 season, Humber has been the top-ranked program in the country.
Humber has surpassed the 100-point mark four times this season, the most in the Ajay Sharma era.
Nofuente now sits ninth on the OCAA all-time scoring list with 1,060 career points, seven points behind Erin Emery's (Durham 2007-12) mark of 1,067.
At the Helm
Ajay Sharma returns to the sidelines for his seventh season and is nine wins from tying Humber Hall of Famer Jim Henderson (1991 – 2000) as the all-time winningest head coach in program history.
Sharma has directed the Hawks to a period of unprecedented prosperity in the form of three consecutive CCAA tournament appearances – including the first national championship in program history – and three straight provincial titles. Sharma owns a 124-22 (.849) career record.
Humber will host the UTM Eagles (1-5, 9th West) on Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 6 p.m.
