It was their first win since President's Day, 2007, when they defeated Longwood 78-74. The Isles won that day too, defeating the Penguins 6-5 in a thrilling game at the Coliseum -- Mike Sillinger was the hero.
Ironically, it was the 800th win in school history for NJIT (800-701 at various levels of play); they have a shot now at a winning streak. They play Longwood on Saturday.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982.
