MIT's Defense Takes Care of Coast Guard

Box Score

MIT held Coast Guard to just 14 first-half points and 23% shooting for the game, eventually taking home the 45-37 victory. Although things weren't the prettiest for the Engineers on offense (38% shooting, 16 turnovers), MIT converted at the free-throw line (18 total free-throws made) and clamped down on defense and the boards (+10 for the game).

MIT had three players score 10 points in a balanced offensive outing, with 6'8" Matt Redfield registering a double-double with 13 rebounds, Justin Pedley reaching his 10 with a handful of threes, and Sophomore point guard Ryan Frankel adding 4 rebounds and 4 assists.

MIT moves to 15-6 on the season and 6-4 in the NEWMAC. MIT currently sits 1 game out of 2nd place behind Springfield and Babson. MIT faces WPI in Rockwell Cage on Wednesday.
