MIT's Battle with #12 WPI Falls Short

Box Score

WPI shot 51% from the field and out-rebounded MIT 32-23 en route to a 64-52 victory over the Engineers of Cambridge Wednesday night in Rockwell Cage. WPI's defense was able to hold All-Conference selection Matt Redfield to just 3 points and MIT's leading scorer, Justin Pedley, to 4. 23 rebounds is the lowest rebounding total for MIT since January of 2010.

6'8" Freshman Tim Butala stepped up big again for MIT, scoring 18 points including 4 three-pointers and 4 rebounds. Sophomore Ryan Frankel added 12 points and 5 assists, and Junior Co-Captain Dennis Levene netted 10 along with 4 rebounds.

MIT moves to 15-7 on the season and takes on Wheaton College this Saturday.
