Women’s basketball completes undefeated season

The Carleton Ravens women’s basketball team has finished their undefeated season with a record of 23-0 and now has their eyes on their second straight Critelli Cup and first-ever national championship win. The Ravens are first in the U Sports rankings as well as in Ontario University Athletics (OUA) as they head into their Critelli Cup playoff quarterfinals on Feb. 24 against the Ryerson Rams. The team’s end goal is to win a national championship, according to forward Alyssa Cerino—something that motivates them every day.

Editorial: Capital Hoops needs to move to a better venue

This year the annual Capital Hoops Classic saw a drop in attendance of 1,500 people. With an official attendance of 8,579, this is the lowest attendance the game has had since 2014. If Carleton and the University of Ottawa (U of O) hope to keep Capital Hoops relevant, they need to reconsider the Canadian Tire Centre as the host of the event. The Canadian Tire Centre is over a 30 minute drive (with no traffic) from Carleton’s campus, and even farther from the U of O, meaning that for students, the travel time alone to Capital Hoops could exceed two hours. Add on the fact that the night features two games, a student would have to spend nearly six hours […]

Men’s basketball extends win streak to 16

The Carleton Ravens men’s basketball team extended their unbeaten run to 16-0 with victories over the Laurentian Voyageurs and the Nipissing Lakers at home on Jan. 18 and 19. The Ravens held on after a late comeback by the Voyageurs for a narrow 71-67 victory. Laurentian were 12-1 heading into the game and they gave Carleton all they could handle until the end. “Our energy just fell in the second half and we weren’t doing the fundamental things on defence, and that allowed them to come back but, the guys were able to pull off the win,” said point guard Munis Tutu, who called it an “ugly” win. The Ravens were also missing centre Eddie Ekiyor and point guard Emmanuel […]

Former Raven basketball star joins Raptors 905

It was nearly half a year ago when Kaza Kajami-Keane’s illustrious career as a Carleton Raven came to a satisfying end, with the Ravens winning a seventh straight national title. Kajami-Keane now finds himself in the midst of making the transition from university basketball to the professional level as a member of the Raptors 905, the minor league affiliate of the Toronto Raptors. After spending his first three years of college playing for both Illinois State and Cleveland State, Kajami-Keane was able to cap his fourth and final year of eligibility by winning the 2017 U Sports national championship with Carleton—along with being named the tournament MVP. This past summer, Kajami-Keane was able to make the leap to the professional […]
