Friday's CIS Action

Carleton at Ottawa 8:00 PM EST   Cross-town rivalry game that Carleton has dominated recently including come-from-behind win at Scotiabank Place in January.  One intriguing element is the matchup of arguably the two top freshmen in the nation in Carleton's 6'3" Phil Scrubb and Ottawa's 6'3" Johnny Berhanemeskel.  According to Gee-Gees sports info, Berhanemeskel recently broke the OUA record for 3 pointers by a freshman in one season and is coming off a blistering 4 game stretch of 22.5 ppg including 60% from downtown - all on the road.  Scrubb with 6'6" Tyson Hinz has been Carleton's most consistent offensive threat and handles the ball in many key game situations.  With little to choose from statistically between the two, how each has performed in big spots will help determine who ultimately obtains the big individual honours - we will do a deeper dive on this discussion (which also definitely includes Ryerson's 6'0" Jahmal Jones) at later date.

Laurentian at York 8:00 PM EST   The Voyageurs won the first game in Sudbury but have lost 9 of their last 10.  Lions are also reeling without 6'10" Dejan Kravic out for the season.

Ryerson at Toronto 8:00 PM EST   Blues won a thrilling overtime affair at Ryerson in the first game of this rapidly-developing downtown Toronto rivalry.

Lakehead at Western 8:00 PM EST  Western retains a chance to host the 4/5 OUA West playoff game vs. McMaster.

RMC at Queen's 8:00 PM EST   Two teams playing out the string in Kingston.
