MIT Falls to Springfield on Road

Box Score

A poor 2nd-half performance by the Engineers cost them the game Thursday evening in a battle for second place with Springfield College. MIT shot just 36% from the field, 20% from three, and were out-rebounded 17-15 in final half, leading to the 59-51 loss.

6'8" Matt Redfield paced the Engineers with 14 points and 4 rebounds despite getting double-and triple-teamed throughout the contest. 6'8" Freshman Tim Butala stepped up big again after a career-game versus Clark, posting 12 points and 5 rebounds on 5-of-10 shooting. 6'8" Andrew Acker added 12 points and 7 rebounds.

MIT moves to 14-6 on the season and 5-4 in the very competitive NEWMAC. They travel to Connecticut on Saturday to face the US Coast Guard Academy.
