After getting off to a quick start on Senior Night, No. 8 ranked MIT wrapped up the NEWMAC regular-season championship on Wednesday night with a 113-60 home victory over Clark University. The regular-season title is the first for MIT since the 2012-13 season and the program’s fourth overall.
After getting off to a quick double-digit lead, the No. 6 ranked MIT men’s basketball team ran its winning streak to eight straight with a 75-54 home win over the U.S. Coast Guard Academy on Wednesday night. With the victory, MIT now has four straight 20-win seasons.
