Ruot had a monster double double on Saturday in Loyalist's 100-79 home victory over Centennial. The six-foot-seven forward racked up a season-best 25 points and 15 rebounds to secure Loyalist's fifth win of the season. He also added four assists. Ruot is two points shy of 100 for the season, averaging 12.3 points per game. The victory elevated the Lancers (5-3) to fourth place in the East Division after a seventh-place finish (and sub-.500 record) last season. Loyalist has two road games against Durham (4-4) and Fleming (2-6) to conclude the first half.
