The Ravens hosted their final regular season games of the 2017-18 season over the weekend, where the third-year guard hit double figures in scoring in both of Carleton’s wins over York and Queen’s.
In Carleton’s 87-57 victory over York on February 16, Mayambo posted 11 points (4-9 FG) and five rebounds. The next night, the 6-foot-1 sharpshooter scored 11 points (3-5 3PT FG) on an efficient shooting night from the floor, contributing seven rebounds while playing a game-high 27 minutes in the Ravens’ 97-52 triumph over the Gaels.
