The men’s basketball team won the first conference championship in their 108-year history with a 76-50 victory over Springfield College on Sunday. The team will play Rhode Island College this Friday night in the first round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.

Add Date is this Friday, March 6.

The Seventh Annual Latke- Hamentashen Debate will take place Wednesday night at 8 p.m. in 26-100. Perhaps this year it might not end in a tie.

The Campus Police forced students to leave the area in front of 26-100 on Friday morning, at about 4:40 a.m. A handful of students had been camped out in line for the MIT Chorallaries’ Bad Taste concert (see story above, right) since Wednesday night. The students were threatened with trespassing, they said.

East Campus housemaster Thomas J. Delaney and Dean for Student Activities Jed Wartman both contacted former Police Chief John DiFava, who has lodged inquiries within the Police. DiFava said that as far as he was concerned, students should be able to camp out as long as they were not disruptive. Students were back in line on Friday afternoon.
