HALIFAX, NS–CIS player of the year, Tyson Hinz of Carleton was unstoppable in the Ravens victory over the Saskatchewan Huskies in the second CIS National championship semi-final.

Hinz displayed sheer domination over the Huskies. The formula was simple; get the ball to Tyson, and he will tke care of the rest.

“Hes a big part of our offense…hard to stop one on one,” said CIS Rookie of the year, Philip Scrubb.

Hinz poured in 32 points on 13 of 22 shooting from the field including 3 of 7 from deep. The Carleton sophomore put on a clinic, scoring in a variety of ways including posting up opponents or facing up and taking defenders off the dribble.

The duo of Jamelle Barrett and Rejean Chabot were agressive from the jump. Whether they were creating plays for each other in transition or spoon feeding their post players, they were flat out getting it done.

Unfortunately for the Huskies, Chabot and Barrett were the only players to show up, combing for 54 of the Huskies total 83 points.

Although both scored in bunches, nothing came easy as Chabot shot 8/21 while Chabot 8/23

The huskies managed to stick around throughout the enitre game and showed persistance after Crleton threatened to open the game up on several occassions. Sask made some runs including  a 23-6 second quarter.

However, it was not quite enough to overcome the mighty Carleton Ravens. The Huskies couldn’t afford to trade baskets; each time the huskies inched closer, a big play was made by none other than, Tyson Hinz.

“Tyson really came up big for us. We just tried getting him the ball as much as possible and he creates shots for everyone else,” said Philip Scrubb.

“As long as Ty gets the ball, he can score or get other guys shots.”

This is the beauty of Carleton, they maximize on their execution, each player understanding their role in Coach Smarts’ system.

“Hes a big part of our offense…hard to stop one on one,” continued Scrubb on Hinz dominance.

Carleton will take on Trinity Western for the right to be called “CIS National Champions” on Championship Sunday.
