CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Larry Anderson, head coach of the Nationally-ranked No. 15 MIT men's basketball team, will make an appearance on the popular "Hoopsville" radio show on Sunday January 10. Anderson has his Engineers off to the best start in program history at 13-1, as they are unbeaten against Division III opponents on the season. Hoopsville, presented by D3Hoops.com, is "Division III basketball's weekly talk show." The program runs from 7-9 p.m. each Sunday. Coach Anderson will be appearing on the show at 7:30 on Sunday night.
MIT downed Babson College on Saturday in its New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) opener. Sophomore Noel Hollingsworth poured in a career-high 37 points against Babson and currently leads the team in scoring (21.2 points per game) and rebounds (9.4).
Last season, Anderson guided the Engineers to their first NEWMAC Championship Title and first NCAA Tournament appearance while earning NEWMAC Coach of the Year honors. Entering his 15th season at the helm, Anderson's coaching tenure is the second longest in Tech's basketball lore, while on November 29, 2008 he surpassed legendary Jack Barry as the winningest coach in the program's 101-year history. Also the 2005-06 NEWMAC Coach of the Year, Anderson took over a struggling program and decisively turned it into a contender. After enduring a tough opening campaign, he guided MIT to a 15-game turnaround that resulted in an 18-7 overall record.
