ST. PETER, Minn. -- Akemi Arzouman (Jr./Irvine, Calif/University) went 9-for-13 from the field and had a game-high 18 points, but the Carleton College women’s basketball team was unable to keep pace with Gustavus Adolphus College, falling 70-44.
Both teams shot sporadically from the field, with Carleton (2-15, 1-13 MIAC) making 39 percent of its shots, while the Gusties (15-2, 13-1 MIAC) converted 42 percent, but it was rebounding that proved to be the crucial factor in this game. Gustavus finished with 50-27 edge on the boards.
Carleton started slowly and trailed 28-8 with 6:21 remaining in the first half. The Knights got no closer than 13 points the balance of the contest.
Jenny Ramey (So./Cottage Grove, Minn./New Life Academy) added nine points to the Carleton effort, and Skylar Tsutsui (Fy./Northridge, Calif./Harvard Westlake) chipped in eight points.
Four players reached double figures for Gustavus, which ran its win streak to 12 games.
