TORONTO, Ontario — Ohio Northern's men's basketball program split its squad into two even teams and posted a pair of exhibition games on Saturday.

The Polar Bears are now 3-0 on their Canadian exhibition tour after winning at Seneca College 105-64 Saturday afternoon and winning 69-59 at George Brown College Saturday evening.

Sophomore Alex Siblia threw down two thunderous dunks to spark the Polar Bears to a strong second half against Seneca, turning a 10-point halftime lead into a 41-point victory.

Against George Brown, junior Aron Thress had 16 points and sophomore Grant Pepper added 12 points for ONU.

The Polar Bears will wrap up their Canadian trip with a 6 pm contest on Tuesday at Lambton College in Sarnia, which is located across the river from Port Huron, Mich.
