Carleton 49, Trinity Western 31 at the half

Carleton jumped out to leads as large as 13 at 36-23 as the Ravens took advantage of lacklustre Spartan rotations to go 8 for their first 14 from the line.  But then Trinity, needing to hide 6'6" Kyle Coston and 6'7"Jacob Doerksen, initially created some duress for Carleton offensively and had a 6-0 run of their own to get it 7 and it appeared we had a game once again.  However, Carleton finally got some post touches against the zone and 6'3" Elliott Thompson went off for 8 straight points, part of a 13-2 run to end the half and Ravens led by 18 at the intermission.  Except for a couple of stretches, one early and one midway through the second, the Ravens suffocating paint-area "d" and strong defensive rebounding again was the foundation of the half - although Carleton did allow 11 offensive rebounds.  Offensively, Ravens went 10 for 20 from downtown and shot 47% overall.
