Just Win
Humber's win at UTM was its 75th consecutive OCAA victory, extending its league record.

The previous mark of 67 was established by head coach John MacInnis and the Algonquin Thunder from Nov. 2011 – Jan. 2015. The Hawks matched that mark with a 28-point win over No. 15 Fanshawe on Nov. 15.

Humber's Dynamic Duo
Entering the 2017-18 season, no Humber student-athlete had ever reached the 1,000-point club. 13 games later, Humber's dynamic duo of Ceejay Nofuente (1,220) and Aleena Domingo (1,081) started the club, becoming the second-highest scoring teammates in league history.

Immediate Impact
Playing in their first season with Humber, Brittney English, Makeba Taylor, and Jahnae Gyles have made an impact for the Hawks, playing in all 17 games this season. The trio has combined for 21.0 points, 3.8 assists, and 3.5 steals per game.

From Downtown
Jahnae Gyles and Ceejay Nofuente have combined for 4.7 triples per game this season, ranking third and fifth in the OCAA with 2.6 and 2.4 treys apiece, respectively.

Humber ranks first in the conference in 3-point field goals made per game (9.6).

Doubling Down
Humber has recorded 22 double-doubles in 17 games this season.

Top Spot
Since the beginning of the 2016 season, Humber has been the top-ranked program in the country.

On The Glass
Through 17 games, the Hawks rank first in the OCAA in rebounding margin (+22.8).

#CH4SEHISTORY
The Hawks are in pursuit of their fourth consecutive provincial championship, looking to become only the second program in OCAA history to complete the feat. Algonquin won four straight from 2011 – 2014.

Duplicate?
The Humber record book and OCAA record book are beginning to look very similar. The Hawks now own five OCAA team scoring records, including points in a season (1,658), points in a game (125), 2-point field goals in a game (55), 2-point field goals in a season (568), and 3-point field goals in a season (163).

All-Time List
Nofuente sits third on the OCAA all-time scoring list with 1,220 career points - 102 points behind Shannon Kennedy of St. Clair for second place.

With 1,081 points, Aleena Domingo trails Lindsay Panchan (Durham, 2014-17) for eighth all-time.

At the Helm
In Wednesday's win at UTM, head coach Ajay Sharma tied Hall of Famer Jim Henderson for the most wins in program history. Through 155 career games, Henderson and Sharma sport identical records of 133 wins and 22 losses.

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. 

2018 OCAA Provincial Championship
