George Brown men’s basketball (9-1, 2nd east) open the season’s second half on Friday night in Peterborough against the Fleming Knights.

The Huskies are coming off a win at their own tournament last week, reeling off three straight wins over Mohawk, Durham and St. Clair over two days. 

Tournament all-star and Rookie of the Year candidate Adam Costanzo continued asserting himself among the best wings in the province. The 6'5" swingman had a 13 point, 13 rebound double-double in the Huskies championship-clinching win over St. Clair, and was a force on the defensive side of the ball. The Ottawa native's ability to finish on the break while working effectively on the perimeter has made him a unique talent - alongside fellow 6'5" Toronto native Jordan James the Huskies have as good a wing combination as anyone in the OCAA.

Dejamzatch James and Alex Petronis combined to form one of the province’s strong back-courts in the first half, and they will look to continue building chemistry as the provincial championship approaches. The duo is combining to average just under 38 points a night, over 10 rebounds and five steals while providing stellar play on the defensive side of the ball. 

Point guard Teshayn Gayle earned tournament MVP honours last week for an incredible two-way performance, while fellow point guard Chris Fields was excellent as well.

George Brown is undefeated on the road this season, and defeated Fleming 94-85 to close the first semester. 

Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m., follow @GBC_Huskies on twitter for updates throughout the night.
