Week Ending November 15, 2015
Kaza Kajami-Keane (Ajax, ON) had a standout weekend for the men’s basketball team in the Ravens’ back-to-back road victories over Guelph (Nov.13) and Lakehead (Nov.14).
Kajami-Keane filled the stat sheet against Guelph on Friday evening with his Carleton career-high of 26 points on 10 of 16 shooting. The combo guard hurt the Gryphons in more ways than one by contributing 4 rebounds and dishing out 4 assists in an 85-59 victory.
In the following night’s game against Lakehead, the Cleveland State (NCAA) transfer scored a team-high 16 points against the Thunderwolves, while also handing out 7 assists and going 2-3 from 3-point range. Carleton won the game, 93-62.
Kajami-Keane currently leads the OUA in assists per game with a 7.0 average. He also tops the scoring charts for the Ravens with 17.0 points per contest through 4 games this season.
Kaza, a fourth-year student athlete, is enrolled in Communications at Carleton.
Ravens goaltender Katelyn Steele (Markham, ON) had two MVP-calibre performances over the weekend against the McGill Martlets, going 1-1 in two appearances versus the CIS’s No.3 ranked women’s hockey team.
Despite having an inferior all-time record against the Martlets (2-82-1), Steele backstopped the Ravens with 35 saves to earn a 1-0 win against McGill and only Carleton’s second-ever victory over the program (first since 2012). Along with Steele shutting down the potent McGill offence and snapping a 19-game losing streak against them in the process, the win marked the Ravens’ first-ever home ice victory against the Martlets as well (1-40-1).
While Steele could not replicate her performance in a 2-0 defeat in the away rematch at McGill on November 15th, she did post 25 saves and only allowed 1 goal in two periods of work.
Steele currently holds a .939 save percentage and a 2.38 goals against average through 7 games in 2015-16.
Katelyn is second-year student athlete studying at Carleton’s Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice.
