The Centennial Colts men’s basketball team ended the 2012-13 season at 15-5. This record qualified them for the post season where they eventually fell short to George Brown. Despite the loss, the Colts finished fourth overall in the East Division.
The team heated up quickly to start the season, winning nine of their first 10 games. Tristan Stern (15.6 PPG) and Jameel Williamson (14.4 PPG) led the team in scoring. The team was also fourth in steals and shot over 50 percent from three-point range.
The men’s team should continue to have a strong squad and will look to shake of the playoff curse that has dogged them the last few years.
By not giving in until the very end, the women’s basketball team made a strong push for this past season’s 2013 OCAA playoffs. They came just short of qualifying yet proved to be a tough contender in their division by finishing fifth overall with a 9-9 record.
The lady Colts came out the gate struggling by starting the season 2-4 with one of those two wins coming from a forfeit against George Brown. Strong efforts led to winning five of their next six games which put them back in contention for the playoffs. They ended the season first in rebounding.
Guard Tamara James-Francis made the All-Rookie team in their division, leading the Colts in scoring with 11.9 points per game (19th in Ontario).
Both teams are looking for more success this year as they open their 2013-14 seasons on October 22 and play their first home games on October 30 against Seneca
