NORTH BAY, Ont. – The Canadore men's basketball team made it two in row with a big win over the fourth-ranked Centennial Colts (Toronto).

The Panthers were hot early and often jumping out to a 30-13 lead after the first quarter

Centennial found their legs in the second quarter outscoring Canadore 24-15 and trimming the lead to eight at the half.

The two teams trading buckets in third and fourth quarters but with key defence stops and clutch free throw shooting the Panthers took down the Centennial Colts by a final score of 82-78.

Jake Rae (Scarborough) led the Panthers with 16 points and four rebounds while Kemel Archer (Brampton) added 13 points and eight rebounds.

Canadore head coach Stacy Gallagher was thrilled with his team's effort.

"We are all in it together. We have to be a family win or lose. Rise or fall. On Friday we stayed all together and it showed."

The Panthers are in action next Friday, Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. against Georgian College in Barrie, Ont.
