Team, Alumni, and Fans Celebrate MIT Season

On April 21, the MIT Basketball team, alumni, family, friends, and fans joined together to celebrate another historic season at the annual MIT Basketball Banquet. Held at the MIT Faculty Club overlooking the Charles River, the keynote speaker this year was Mark Attanasio, owner of the Milwaukee Brewers. Coaches and players reflected on the past year, and awards were given to the team, including their NCAA Semifinalist trophies.
