Ravens win battle of Top Ten teams

Written by Mike Beasley

It was a marquee match-up on Friday night at the Ravens’ Nest as No. 1 Carleton took on the No. 4 Ryerson Rams.

The Ravens came into the game sporting an undefeated 11-0 record while the Rams were 11-1.

Both team’s records are impressive and ranked in the CIS Top Ten but in the end Carleton remains unbeaten this season as they disposed of Ryerson 110-68 to win their 12th straight OUA game.

It was an offensive explosion for the Ravens led by Philip Scrubb (Richmond, B.C) and his 28 points. Scrubb was perfect on 8 free throw attempts, hit 6 of 9 three pointers, had 7 assists and 4 rebounds.

“It was an exciting game to play against Ryerson, the fourth ranked CIS team,” said Scrubb.

“We (Carleton) were definitely ready to play. I felt good out there and made some shots during the course of the game.”

At times during the game the Ravens were an offensive juggernaut hitting a scary 19 treys in the one-sided victory.

Other Carleton players with strong games included Clinton Springer-Williams (London, ON), 15 points Kevin Churchill (Toronto, ON) 12 points Victor Raso (Hamilton, ON) 12 points and Tyson Hinz (Ottawa, ON) 11 points, 6 rebounds.

Thomas Scrubb (Richmond, B.C.) led both teams with 8 rebounds.

“We did some good things against Ryerson but they were missing a pile of guys including a couple of starters that would have made a difference,” said Dave Smart, Ravens head coach.

“I expect them to be a much different team when they get those players back in the line-up.”

The Ravens tangle with the Toronto Varsity Blues on Saturday night, January 18. Game time at the Ravens’ Nest is 8:00PM.
