Women’s basketball wins four straight

  Back from a two-game road trip, the Carleton Ravens women’s basketball team extended its winning streak, when they defeated the Brock Badgers by a score of 73-49 at the Ravens’ Nest. “I thought we played hard, I don’t think we played particularly well,” Ravens head coach Taffe Charles said. “I think at the end of the day, I was hoping as a group we would play a lot better, but I thought we played hard enough [and] we were happy to be back at home.” The Ravens shot 50 per cent from the field in the first quarter and were aided by five Brock turnovers. Despite Carleton’s efficiency shooting the ball and Brock’s sloppiness, the Badgers only trailed by […]
