End of the line for Pasquale and the Voyageurs
by Randy Pascal

As good as they were this year, a colossal playoff upset was not meant to be for the Laurentian Voyageurs men's basketball team.

Coming off a 93-80 OUA East quarter-final win at home on Wednesday over the Queen's Gaels, coach Shawn Swords and company ran head-first into the juggernaut that is the Carleton Ravens.

The multiple-time national champions and # 1 team in the country proved their mettle, yet again, pulling away from the Voyageurs for a 95-75 win in Ottawa, and moving on to the Wilson Cup Final Four for the umpteenth time.

A very balanced attack which featured five players in double digits helped the Ravens build up a 48-35 lead at the half, holding off a third quarter spurt by the visitors before icing the game over the final ten minutes of play.

Thomas Scrubb (22 pts), Tyson Hinz (18), Clinton Springer-Williams (17), Kevin Churchill (16) and Philip Scrubb (10) were front and center with a Carleton attack that is as multi-faceted as any in the country.

Manny Pasquale continued to hold the hot hand for L.U., of late, netting a game-high 33 points, with Alex Ratte and Nelson Yengue chipping in with 16 and 10 points respectively.

The contest marks the end of the line for a group of elite Voyageur basketball talent, with Pasquale, Sudbury-native Georges Serresse, inside presence Jamie Weldon as well as Stephen Williams all moving on after this year.

Carleton will now face the Lakehead Thunderwolves Friday evening at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto, while the Ottawa Gee Gees and Windsor Lancers do battle in the remaining OUA semi-final.
