NORTHFIELD -- Carleton College sophomore guard Jake Phillips of Brainerd scored a career-high 18 points during the Knights' recent three-game trip to Hawaii.
Phillips made 6-of-8 three-pointers, tying him for eighth-most made in a single game in Carleton history. His .750 three-point percentage ranks fourth all-time at Carleton, with a minimum of five attempts.
He added 12 points in a Dec. 6 victory at St. John's, going 3-for-4 from behind the arc, and had a career-best seven assists in Carleton's MIAC opener Dec. 4 against Hamline.
Phillips is averaging 7.6 points, a team-best 4.1 assists and 3.3 rebounds. He has started all seven games for the Knights and is shooting 41.4 percent from three-point range.
The Knights are 2-1 in conference play, 3-4 overall. They lost all three games in Hawaii against top NCAA Division II competition, with two losses by three points each. Carleton has won three of its last four games before a holiday break.
Carleton returns to action Dec. 30, at Division II Upper Iowa University.
