Carleton 99, Laval 81

Of the many fine guard combinations we have talked about thus far this early season, one rather unlikely pair is emerging on the Carleton Ravens as 6'3" freshman Phil Scrubb and 5'11" fourth-year Willy Manigat showed this afternoon in Quebec City.  Scrubb, who is quickly establishing himself as one of Canada's top freshman, dominated this afternoon's action, exploding for 34 points including 23 in the second-half ,scoring in a variety of ways and leading the way during the key third quarter run that helped the Ravens pull away from a two point halftime deficit.  Manigat continues to find his way in Coach Dave Smart's offensive system and is becoming much more consistent with his jumper and more importantly decision-making.  The pair was instrumental in a 9-0 run that broke a 56-56 tie midway through the third and Carleton's defending and rebounding took over.  Scrubb knocked down 3 3's in the first 4 minutes of the third, many on fine looks from Manigat and Manigat added a couple of his own 3's.  Scrubb's fifth 3 of the half gave the Ravens their largest lead at 80-67 and Laval could come no closer.  Carleton now moves to 7-0 on the season vs. CIS teams and a likely #1 spot in the coming rankings.

...More to come

Can't seem to find any stats on the Laval tournament. But from what we were told, the interesting stat is the emergence of Phil Scrubb as a scorer. Combined with Tyson Hines scoring output last weekend, and lots of solid secondary scoring, it would appear that Carleton may be a better offensive team this year. This bodes well. When Carleton struggles, it's usually on the offensive side of the ball.
