Cambridge, Mass. (January 22) -- MIT men's basketball senior guard AJ Jurko (Weston, Fla.) has been named to the D3Hoops.com Team of the Week for his play in Saturday's overtime win over Babson College.
Rejoining the lineup after missing three games due to injury, Jurko registered a career-high 37 points that included a 4-for-5 showing from three-point land. His biggest three came in the final seconds of regulation as he drilled a shot from the top of the key to send the game into overtime. Jurko also added three rebounds, six assists and three steals to help the Engineers improve to 15-2 overall and 5-1 in NEWMAC play.
MIT, which is now ranked No. 9 in the latest D3Hoops.com Top 25 National Poll, returns to action on Wednesday night in Worcester as the Engineers take on Clark University for a 7 p.m. start.
