MIT to Learn Post-Season Fate Monday

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After capturing its second straight New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) title on Sunday afternoon, the national-ranked No. 3 MIT men's basketball team will find out its NCAA Division III tournament placement on Monday afternoon during the tournament selection show, to be aired on NCAA.com at 12:00 p.m. Fans are invited to the Coffeehouse Lounge in the Stratton Student Center to watch a live stream of the selection show along with members of the team and coaching staff.  

MIT is guaranteed to receive its fourth consecutive berth in the NCAA tournament, after earning the NEWMAC automatic bid by virtue of its win over Springfield College in the conference championship game.
