Carleton 82, Trinity 59 Final

The Spartans used a variety of zone presses and a long extended quarter court zone to stymie the Ravens offensively for much of the quarter drawing to within 11 by threes by Willy Manigat and Elliot Thompson, just before the buzzer restored a 17 point lead after 3.  Carleton had difficulty scoring for long stretches however their defense again kept the margin comfortable.  Later, the Spartans ran into a series of charging calls and lost their top overall defender Tyrell Mara to fouls.  Mara had done a strong job keep Tyson Hinz in check after the Moser award winner got off to a strong start.  When Phil Scrubb took Tristan Smith off the dribble and calmly knocked down an elbow jumper, Carleton led by 19 and later took their largest lead at 75-52 with a 12-1 run that all but ended the game.  Carleton allowed only 8 points in the final 8 minutes of the game.
