Carleton 75, Fraser Valley 70

5'11" Mike Kenny, seeing his first CIS action of the young season after coming back from a foot injury, had 14 of his game-high 20 points after halftime including 4-7 3's to lead the Ravens to a come-from-behind victory over a very strong Cascades group in the first game of the Guy Vetrie Memorial tournament at UVic in a game described by observers as a "war". Carleton broke away from a 66-66 tie with a game-breaking 7-0 run to lead 73-66 with just over 3 minutes remaining and held on for the five point win. The host Vikes face Alberta Golden Bears in the second game. The Ravens, who trailed by 3 at halftime, started the third quarter on an 8-1 run and seemingly began to take control however the resilient Cascades battled back to regain the lead after 3 quarters. Carleton had to knock down a couple of 3's in the last 30 seconds of the first half to stay within 3 at 40-37 of a very good Fraser Valley team that plays very hard and very together. The Cascades shot a blistering 56% from the floor in the first half. 6'8" Kevin McCleery added 16 points and 7 rebounds for Carleton while 6'7" second year post Jasper Moedt had 16 points for UFV, but only 4 after halftime after going 5-5 from the floor for 12 points to lead all scorers and added 6 rebounds in the first half. 5'10" Zeon Gray (Los Angeles, CA) added 13 for the Cascades while 6'4" freshman Joel Freisen had 15 and 6'6" post Kyle Grewal added 13. In the first half, Carleton went 6 for 16 from downtown but only 11 for 31 overall from the floor.
