MIT Announces 2012-13 Men’s Basketball Schedule

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Coming off a record-setting season that saw the MIT men's basketball team reach the NCAA Division III Final Four, the Engineers will begin their quest to repeat as New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference champions and gain another trip to the NCAA Tournament in November. MIT will officially open the 2012-13 season on November 15 with a game at Lesley, the first of a 24-game regular season schedule released today.

After playing at Lesley and Gordon to start the season, MIT will open at home on November 20 against Emmanuel, the first of three straight games in Rockwell Cage. The Engineers will also host Curry on Nov. 24 and then Tufts on Nov. 27 to complete the first home stand of the season. After a game at Rhode Island College on Nov. 29, MIT will return home to host Newbury on Dec. 1 and UMass Boston on Dec. 4.

MIT will finish December with three road games, including an out of region contest at the University of Le Verne in California on Dec. 31. The Engineers will then open NEWMAC play at Wheaton on Jan. 5. The Engineers will have their first home conference game on Jan. 10 when they host Coast Guard. The regular season will close with three straight home games against Clark on Feb. 9, Wheelock on Feb. 11 and WPI on Feb. 13.
