NORTHFIELD - Jake Phillips of Brainerd scored 30 points, including a school-record 7-for-7 from three-point range, as Carleton lost to Macalester 81-77 in MIAC men's college basketball Wednesday.
The loss means the Knights (10-14 overall, 9-10 MIAC) will be on the road for the MIAC playoff quarterfinals. The fifth-seeded Knights will play at Gustavus Adolphus in Monday's conference tournament opener.
Carleton rallied behind Phillips' hot hand in the first half. The senior drilled five three-pointers in a nine-minute spurt and the teams headed into halftime tied 44-44.
