Basketball ready for March Madness

After upsetting WPI to win the NEWMAC conference tournament last weekend, the Men’s Basketball team received an automatic bid to the national tournament.

The Engineers will travel to Ithaca, NY on Friday, March 4 to play in the NCAA Division III National Tournament. MIT will face regional hosts Ithaca College Friday evening, and if they win, they will advance to the second round to face the winner of the first-round game between Elms College and the University of Rochester.

The team will be providing free bus transportation to the game for MIT students. Buses will leave Friday afternoon at 1 p.m.

A full bracket of the tournament can be found in the March 1 issue of The Tech.
