Gaiters fall to No. 3 Carleton in final non-conference tune up
A double-double by Kendall Macleod (Brockville, Ont.) led the No. 3-ranked Carleton Ravens to a 65-43 win over the Bishop’s Gaiters in non-conference basketball action at the Mitchell Gym, Sunday. Macleod scored 13 points and grabbed a teamhigh 15 rebounds for the Ravens, who led 24-18 at halftime and never trailed in the contest.
The game was a tough, physical contest, with the teams combining for 53 fouls, and three players fouling out of the game. Carleton went to the free-throw line 36 times, making 26, while the Gaiters went 11-for-18 from the charity stripe.
The Gaiters (4-5 CIS) were led by 12 points by Jessy Roy (Val d’or, Que.), while Catherine Rondeau (Sherbrooke, Que.) added nine. Annick Stephanny Charles (Laval, Que.) grabbed a teamhigh eight rebounds.
The Gaiters committed 32 turnovers, and were outrebounded 49-35. Baskets were difficult to come by, as both teams shot 29% from the field, and the Gaiters made only two of 13 three-point attempts.
The Gaiters are next in action on Saturday, November 12, as they host the UQAM Citadins in their league opener. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
