College of St. Scholastica

A total of 51 second-half points wasn't enough to catch up with host Carleton in a 96-90 Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference loss to Carleton on Saturday, Dec. 11, in Northfield, Minnesota.

The Saints trailed 50-39 at halftime despite making nearly 63% (17-of-27) of their first-half field-goal attempts and were down more than 20 near the midpoint of the second period. A 15-2 run got them to within seven points with 1:21 to play but never got closer than five during an array of late free throws.

All 10 starters for the two teams scored in double digits, with the Knights led by 20 points apiece from Luke Harris and Matt Banovetz. For CSS (1-6, 0-5 MIAC), Nick Carlson had 20 points, while Cade Goggleye and Jack Silgen posted 18 apiece. Quinn Fischer (Esko) posted 14 points and eight rebounds.

The Saints travel to St. Paul for a non-conference game vs. Northwestern on Wednesday night.


Carleton takes down Saints

Carleton forced 29 St. Scholastica turnovers and rolled in the second half to a 76-52 home win over St. Scholastica in Northfield, Minnesota on Saturday.


The Saints were tied 16-16 after a quarter and down 31-25 at halftime, but as the turnovers piled up, the game slipped away, as the Knights had 25 fastbreak points to the Saints two.

Miranda Broberg scored 15 points for CSS (0-8, 0-6 MIAC), while Carleton had four players in double figures led by Aiana Whitfield's 17 points.

CSS is off for the semester break and returns to the floor on Jan. 5 to host Hamline.
