OTTAWA, Ontario–University of Memphis’ Pookie Powell had 13 points and Chris Hawkins added 10 points and five rebounds, but it wasn’t enough as the Tigers fell to Carleton 92-60 Tuesday night at the Ravens’ Nest.
Philip Scrubb led all scorers with 30 points. Connor Wood added 21 points for Carleton.
Unlike Saturday’s game when the Ravens put on a three-point shooting exhibition early, Memphis held Scrubb in check most of the first half. He had 13 first-half points, but was 1-of-4 from the arc. The Ravens, as a team, were only 2-of-12 from the three-point line in the first half.
Carleton, however, began taking advantage of Memphis’ fatigue in the second half, as Tuesday’s game was the Tigers’ fourth in four nights. The Ravens last played Saturday versus the Tigers.
The Ravens hit six treys in the third period alone (6-of-7), which were more than all of the first half. Carleton was 9-of-11 from the arc in the second half.
Carleton also took advantage at the foul line, hitting 21-of-23 free throws. Memphis was 19-of-33 from the free throw line. The Tigers also had 21 turnovers compared to Carleton’s 10 miscues.
Tuesday’s game concluded the Tigers’ Canadian exhibition tour. Memphis finished the tour with a 2-2 record.
