Carleton 90, Guelph 51

Putting on another dominating defensive display, the Ravens held Guelph to just 24 first-half points to take a 24 point halftime lead while shooting 56% from the floor and turning it over only 5 times all night in routing the Gryphons at the Raven's Nest in Ottawa.  Guelph's "d" allowed them to hang around until about midway through the second quarter as Carleton finished the first half on a 25-10 run, knocking down several 3's (9-20 from downtown for the game).

While 6'3" freshman Phil Scrubb led the way for Carleton with 22 points, 5'10" Willy Manigat (13 points) provided some early offensive spark with a crisp take to the rim and a pair of 3's in the first half and 5'10" fifth-year guard Mike Kenny was solid in his new role off the bench, knocking in a pair of 3's when it was still close in the first quarter.  In what is becoming a common theme, 6'5" Cole Hobin again dominated his designated check on the defensive end, limiting 6'4" Jonathan Moscatelli to 2 points and 6 turnovers in another sterling effort shutting down the opponent's top scorer.

5'11" Sheridan transfer Kareem Malcolm showed signs that he will be one of the better newcomers in the OUA West with 18 points including 4 3's, displaying a knack for getting to where he wants on the floor and showing off his pure scorer's ability.  Guelph shot only 33% for the game and turned it over 16 times.

Guelph faces Ottawa tomorrow night in a battle of 0-1 teams while Carleton hosts Brock, surprising winners tonight against the Gee-Gees.
