Men’s Basketball Unveils Championship Banner
*

On Nov. 21, prior to hosting MIT in the championship game of the RPI Tip-Off Tournament, the Engineers men’s basketball team celebrated the tremendous success of the 2008-09 season. With the help of President Jackson as well as the three seniors from last year’s team (Sam Simmons, Rory Perner, and Kyle Jung-above), a pair of championship banners commemorating the team’s Liberty League Tournament Championship and the NCAA Tournament appearance were unfurled in the new East Campus Arena. And what a memorable season it was, as head coach Mike Griffin set the school record for career victories, Sam Simmons was named the Liberty League Player of the Year, and the team captured the league tournament title for the first time on its way to playing in the national tournament for the seventh time in school history.
