Cal Tech Basketball Wins For First Time in 11 Years, Finally Gets Attention

+ More

After "a mathematically improbable run of 207 consecutive losses," the Beavers broke their streak this weekend, the AP reports. More newsworthy, perhaps, for the Cal Tech athletic program, is that the AP paid attention at all. And it wasn't alone! "National Public Radio, KNBC in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Times, and the college basketball website" also covered the basketball win--and, the press office continues, "A story about the victory will also appear in the January 15 issue of Sports Illustrated." That ends the most likely even longer run of consecutive weeks in which math nerds did not appear in the sports magazine.
