Dynasty restored! The Carleton Ravens are back on top as Canadian university men’s basketball champions, after dominating the previously undefeated Calgary Dinos 83 – 49 in Sunday’s national final in Halifax.
The win propelled the Ravens to their 14th title since 2003, through superior shooting and rebounding and a relentless defence that stifled the Canada West champs, who were going for their second consecutive W.P. McGee Trophy.
Carleton U, which has now won eight of the last nine titles, was paced by fourth year guard Yassiin Joseph’s 20 point performance. Guard Munis Tutu chipped in 18 points while player of the game Eddie Ekiyor scored 12 points and hauled in 15 rebounds. Ekiyor was also named tournament MVP.
