Engineers Triumph Over Curry

Box Score

MIT got back to their winning ways this afternoon with a hard-fought 69-62 win over last year's CCC champions Curry College.

The Engineers, leading by as much as 17 points, allowed Curry to creep back into the game late in the second half. MIT was able to execute down the stretch, however, to earn their 3rd win of the season.

6'8" Junior captain Matt Redfield dominated the game scoring 27 points with 13 rebounds, 5 blocks, 3 assists, 2 dunks and a steal. 6'6" sharp-shooter Justin Pedley nailed 5 three-pointers en route to a 21-point performance.

On the defensive end, 6'6" sophomore Russell Johnson led the way with 5 rebounds, 2 blocks and 2 steals while holding Curry's leading scorer to only three field goals. Junior Paul Dawson was the floor general both offensively and defensively for the Engineers, pitching in 6 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists.

MIT travels down the road to Tufts University to face off with the Jumbos next Tuesday at 7pm.
