Men’s basketball dominates Clark & WPI

MIT Men’s Basketball defeated Clark University comfortably Monday, 69-44. The Engineers’ last game was postponed due to the snowstorm, and the week off seemed to do them wonders. In a dominant performance, MIT never trailed. Will Tashman ’13 tied a career high for points in a game with 26, and set a new career high for rebounds with 20. He also set an MIT record for most rebounds in a career. The Engineers’ defense was outstanding all game, holding Clark to a lowly shooting percentage of 19 in the first half and 29.5 percent overall. MIT upset nationally ranked #5 WPI 69-60 Wednesday night to pull into a tie for the NEWMAC lead.
