The Seneca Sting (6-1) showed their offensive potential against the Fleming Knights (0-8), winning their fifth straight 95-79.

Dakoda Lewis continued his ascent up the OCAA scoring leaders, finishing with a team-high 20 points.

The game was much closer than the final score as the Knights presented a number of challenges early for the Sting. The Knights took an early lead 10-9 following a Romain McCalla three-pointer. The OCAA scoring leader once again topped the Knights with 25 points, doing his part in an effort to secure the first win of the season for the Knights.

The fourth quarter saw the Knights chip away at the Sting lead, getting within single digits at 82-73 just past the midway point of the quarter. The next Sting possession saw Ricky Ricketts follow up his own missed shot, secure the rebound and put back the shot to once again extend the Sting lead to double digits, a lead the Sting would maintain to the final buzzer.

Lewis added 4 rebounds to his 20 points. Ricky Ricketts added 19 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists and Eric Landry added 10 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists.
