Oct. 14, 2004

  • In the NEWMAC, the Engineers were ranked third in rebounds per game, averaging 41.6. Individually, junior Rayna Zacks finished fourth in rebounds (8.6) and ninth in field goal percentage (.411).
  • Senior Maria Hidalgo averaged nine points for the women's basketball squad en route to All-Tournament accolades at the 2003 MIT Tip-Off Classic. Hidalgo along with Lauren Tsai, Joanna Natsios, Andrea Dooley, Karen Kinnaman, and Jordan Wirfs-Brock were selected to the NEWMAC All-Academic Team at the close of the seson.
  • Sophomore Andrea Dooley dished out an average of 3.1 assists per game, good for a seventh-place ranking in the Conference statistics.
  • Senior Samia Mahjub and junior Rayna Zacks doubled their pleasure with double-doubles in a total of seven games.
  • The women's basketball team snapped a 12-game losing streak behind the incredible heroics of senior Maria Hidalgo. MIT defeated Massachusetts College, 59-57, paced by Hidalgo's game-high 18 points and a clutch buzzer-beating score. Senior Samia Mahjub rebounded a potential Mass. College game-winner with six seconds left in regulation. Sophomore Andrea Dooley took the initial feed from Mahjub and drove the length of the court as the clock ticked down. Dooley dished to the left wing, where Hidalgo threw up the 12-foot jumper as the game-ending horn sounded.
