Glenn Washington led the team with 15 points, while senior Bruce MacLelland scored 14 points for the team.
Head coach Greg Herenda said, “I was really proud of our team’s defensive intensity today. We had 22 steals in one game which is remarkable. We also stepped it up offensively as well. It was great getting our first conference win in front of our fans at home.”
Junior Andrew Baker led Centenary with 21 points and 14 rebounds.
The Cavaliers left the court with 50 rebounds, 24 offense, 38 second chance points and 22 steals.
