Men's basketball downs Mohawk for fourth straight win

BRAMPTON, Ont. - The Sheridan Bruins men's basketball team (16-3, 7-2 OCAA) picked up a fourth straight victory, downing Mohawk 118-93.

There's too much talent in our league, so if you don't put away teams when you have the chance, it's going to catch up to you at some point."

After a back-and-forth first quarter were the lead was exchanged six times, a 20-5 Sheridan run over the final 5:14 of the second period gave the Bruins a 60-37 advantage at the break. They pushed their lead to 29 early in the third, but took their foot off the pedal. Mohawk took advantage pulled to within 13 with 6:16 remaining before the Double Blue slammed the door. 

Six Bruins were in double figures, led by Nick Campbell (28 points, nine rebounds), and followed by Jemol Edwards (22 points, five assists), Kahleek Bakari-Whyte (17 points, six assists, six steals, five rebounds), Keenan Danso-Dapaah (14 points, seven rebounds), Romar Subban (14 points), and Tremaine Anderson (10 points, 13 rebounds). 

The Double Blue will travel to Conestoga on Dec. 1.
