For the Centennial Colts, they were hoping to give the George Brown Huskies just their second loss of the season at home.

The Huskies, though, had other ideas.

Three point shooting and ball movement were the biggest differences in the game as the Colts were blown out, 99-71, by the Huskies Wednesday night at the Athletic and Wellness Centre.

George Brown avenged their earlier loss against Centennial at home and moved to 13-1 on the season. Centennial, meanwhile, fell to 9-5.

Four players were in double figures for the Colts as point guard Josh Mcfarlene nearly had a triple double with 15 points, ten rebounds and eight assists in the loss. Centre Marko Curic had a double double with 11 points and 11 rebounds and also had a game high four blocks while forwards Paul Walwyn and Malique Hyde had 13 and 12 points, respectively.

For George Brown, four players also scored in double figures, with Matthew Bukovec leading all scorers with 21 points on five three pointers.

George Brown moved the ball extremely well, leading to 27 assists compared to Centennial's 16. The Huskies also hit 13 three pointers while the Colts only hit four.

It also didn't help that the Colts men committed 26 turnovers and only had three attempts at the free throw line. The Colts also shot just 38.4 per cent from the field and 14.8 per cent from the three point line.

Centennial hopes to bounce back on Friday Feb. 3, at 8:00 pm whenthey play host to the Georgian Grizzlies at the Athletic and Wellness Centre.
