Ball in Court

First Home Game for WPI Basketball This Weekend
January 09, 2014

With 10 straight seasons of 20 or more wins, WPI Men’s Basketball takes the court for another hot season as they prepare for Saturday’s first home game vs. big-time rival MIT at 2pm.

With the team currently #6 in the country, head coach Chris Bartley tells the Daily Herd, “We’re excited to open conference play and we hope our student, faculty, and staff fans can make Harrington Auditorium a great atmosphere and home court advantage again this year.”

WPI’s student fans, the Aud Squad, are leading the charge to drum up school pride with a strong showing for Saturday’s game.

“The fans really make a difference for us,” admits Bartley. “We have five guys on the court playing, but we feel the Aud Squad is like our 6th player.”
