Carleton 94, Waterloo 67

6'8" Kevin McCleery dominated inside and the Ravens made 12 of 23 three-pointers in an easy win against the Warriors in which the Ravens had leads of greater than 20 in the first half and as high as 28 in the second. McCleery had an array of creative finishes inside to finish with 19 points and as importantly found open teammates with slick feeds when Waterloo sent help for an overmatched 6'9" Matt Hayes in a battle of fifth-year seniors. 6'3" Elliott Thompson set the tone for Carleton from beyond the arc, drilling a pair of open 3's early and finished 4-8 from 3 for 13 points. Eleven of the 12 Ravens who saw action hit the scoresheet. 6'4" Ben Frisby had a strong game for Waterloo, finishing with 19, most in the first half when he almost singlehandidly kept the Warriors in the game with an array of mid-range jumpers and takes to the rim. Unfortunately for the Warriors, Frisby turned an ankle early in the fourth quarter and the injury did look rather severe as he did not return to action. Carleton may have hit the century mark except for some poor free throw shooting as the usually accurate Ravens made only 16 of 27 from the stripe (59%). The game turned into a bit of a foul fest in the second half and while both teams played hard there was little if any chippy play. Waterloo's top scoring threat, 6'3" Cam McIntyre went only 2-9 for 6 points and made several questionable decisions shooting the ball as 6'3" Cole Hobin did a nice job defending the third-year wing. 6'6" Tyson Hinz had 13 points and 6 rebounds while 6'0" Willy Manigat had 11 for the Ravens who remain undefeated at 6-0 in league play. Waterloo returns home from Ottawa with a pair of losses this weekend and falls to 3-3.
