“The Caltech men’s basketball team ended a 26-year conference losing streak Tuesday night after posting a 46-45 victory over Occidental in the team’s regular-season finale on senior night. ”

“Tonight’s win is a testament to the hard work each member of this team, the alumni and the supporters have put into this program,” third-year coach Oliver Eslinger said in a statement released by the school. “I hope that everyone who has participated in Caltech men’s basketball is able to celebrate a little tonight.”

“Ryan Elmquist led Caltech (5-20, 1-13) with 23 points and nine rebounds. It was Elmquist’s free throw with 3 seconds left that was the difference in knocking off Occidental (12-13, 6-8).”

Losing is tough, these boys snapped one of the worst losing streaks in the history of sports. Tonight, you boys out there at Cal Tech…you celebrate.
