The Knights entered the third day of competition with a 60 point lead over reigning champion Gustavus, who was seeking their third title in a row, and ended the day with a 101.5 point victory.

    Knights' season ends in Auggie heartbreak

    Trailing Augsburg 65-64 with three seconds remaining in their opening round game of the MIAC playoffs Monday night, the Carleton Knights put the ball in the right pair of hands. Senior co-captain Zach Johnson, the program's all-time leading scorer and the 16th best in Minnesota college basketball history, found a decent look at a long-range jumper, but three more points were not to be added to his illustrious total as the buzzer-beating attempt bounced off the rim, bringing to an untimely end a season full of excitement and milestones for the men's basketball program.
