HELENA — The Carroll College men’s basketball team got a little revenge at the PE Center on Saturday.
The 10th-ranked Saints returned home for the first time since losing to Rocky Mountain College on Jan. 9, and blitzed the Battlin’ Bears from the opening tip en route to a 90-63 Frontier Conference win.
Carroll College made 19 of 28 field goals and forced 13 turnovers to build a 48-19 halftime lead. Ryan Imhoff had 10 points and four assists in the opening 20 minutes, and the Saints cruised from there.
Carroll’s Matt Wyman scored a game-high 18 points, and Imhoff finished with 16 points, five assists, four rebounds and four steals. Match Burnham contributed 12 points as the Saints shot 63 percent for the game.
Rocky was led by Chad Kananen’s 12 points and Jared Samuelson’s 11.
After a four-game roadtrip, Carroll (18-4 overall, 6-4 conference) is now back in Helena for a four-game homestand. The Saints next host the University of Providence on Feb. 1.
Rocky (13-8 overall, 5-5 conference) returns home to host Montana State-Northern on Feb. 1.
