TORONTO,ON–From the nation’s Capital in Ottawa to the province’s Capital in Toronto, the #1 CIS team in the country, Carleton Ravens made the trip over and entered the Tait Mackenzie centre to take on the York Lions.
Coming into the game, NPH was interested in analyzing the production of each team’s leaders at the point guard position. Carleton is lead by NPH #1-ranked player in the country, sophomore Philip Scrubb, while the Lions’ have senior David Tyndale.
However, the desparity between the two teams didn’t lend any relevance to the mentioned player matchups as the Ravens ran away with a convincing 90-54 victory over the lions.
Scrubb lead Carleton with 17 points and really showed his ability to knock down the three ball. A suggestion for opposing teams would be to ensure he is defended on the perimeter at all times.
Tyndale did a solid job of attacking the heart of the defense and spoon-feeding his teammates for easy buckets under the net.
However, it was freshman Raheem Isaac who anchored the Lions in the points column with 17 respectively. NPH is certainly looking forward to Isaac’s continued progress in the league as he could emerged into one of York’s focal leaders, if not already.
Despite the scoreboard, Ravens Head Coach Dave Smart did not have much praise for his team in the post game.
“We just were not fundamentally sound…I thought our spacing was horrible and defensively I dont think we were even trying to cover the basketball, totally reliant on our help,” explained Smart.
York shot a miniscule 26% from the field as opposed to Carleton’s 40%.
“If they made some shots, it’s a different game. They got the shots they wanted and we refused to really try and cover the basketball,” continued Smart.
Carleton was immediately back on the road to Sudbury, as they will face Laurentian tonight, while York is set to face off against the Ottawa Gee-Gees.
Dave Smart also touches on their match up with the Voyageurs.
“Laurentian will make shots tomorrow in their own gym, so if we don’t cover the basketball we’re in serious trouble.”
