The Carleton Ravens hit the century mark in scoring for the third time in their last four games on Friday night as they knocked off the Queen’s Gaels 104-65 at the Ravens’ Nest.
Last weekend the Ravens put up 100 points or more in wins over Ryerson and Toronto.
In last Tuesday’s Capital Hoops Classic the Ravens fell 18 points shy of the century mark putting up 82 in a win over Ottawa.
Carleton is overpowering the opposition lately and Friday night’s contest was no different as the Ravens enjoyed a comfortable 55-28 half time lead.
The Ravens third quarter was a bit anemic compared to their first, second and fourth frames of play.
Carleton put up 19 points in the third compared to 18 by Queen’s.
“We (Carleton) came out strong in the first half but not so much to start the third quarter,” said Clinton Springer-Williams.
The London, Ontario native finished the game with 17 points but was more concerned with what he thinks is Carleton’s lack of focus.
“Queen’s does a lot of things very well and we lacked concentration and focus to begin the third quarter. Lately that seems to be when teams are jumping on us.”
In the end, the Ravens made up for it in the fourth quarter outscoring the Gaels 30-19.
Philip Scrubb (Richmond, B.C.) led the Ravens attack once again with 23 points. Kevin Churchill (Toronto, ON) chipped in with 14 points and 3 rebounds. Gavin Resch (Ottawa, ON) had an 11 point game with 5 rebounds.
Carleton (15-0) welcomes the York Lions to the Ravens’ Nest on Saturday, January 25. Tip-off is set for 8:00PM
