BRAMPTON, Ont. - The Sheridan Bruins men's basketball team (7-1, 1-0 OCAA) opened their conference schedule with a 106-77 triumph over Fanshawe.

In the second frame, a 12-0 Sheridan run built a 48-36 advantage for the Double-Blue, as they held Fanshawe to 17 second quarter points and took an 11-point lead (56-45) into the break.
A 14-1 Sheridan run early in the third period pushed the Sheridan lead to 24 and the margin would never get smaller than 18 the rest of the way.
The Bruins are in action again in one week, hosting Mohawk on Nov. 2.
