The women's basketball team returned from Nashua, N.H., victorious over Rivier College. This is the team's second consecutive win, bringing its overall record for the season to 6-9. The game was close throughout, with the Engineers leading 35-33 at halftime on the way to a final score of 83-79.

Forward C.J. Doane '95 led the team in scoring with 21 points, including two three-point field goals. Other MIT players scoring in double figures were center Kristin Ratliff '95 with 16, guard/forward Amy MacKay '97 with 12, and forward Mari Casserburg '94 with 10. Casserburg's career point total is 1030. With 29 more points, she will move her ahead of Bill Eagleson '64 and into a tie with David Tomlinson '91 for 11th place on the list of MIT's all-time scoring leaders.

The Engineers have taken their winning streak with them on a road trip. They will play their second of three consecutive away games tomorrow afternoon at Western New England College. The next home game will be Thursday night against Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
