Cañada scored a statement win at City College of San Francisco Friday night.  That statement — the Colts are now the class of the Coast Conference North. The 105-96 victory marked the first time in over a decade Cañada has defeated CCSF. Having entered into play tied atop the Coast Conference North, the Colts (4-1 in Coast Conference North, 18-2 overall) are now all alone in first place.
