The Magic Number

January 23, 2013 - Michael Bleach

HOUGHTON — It is actually startlingly simple for the Michigan Tech men's basketball team.

In 11 wins this season, the Huskies have not allowed opponents to reach 70 points once. In all five losses, the Tech defense has conceded 70 points or more.

It is a nice, round, magical number for Tech to pin on the metaphorical bulletin board.

Which Tech coach Kevin Luke has done. Emphatically.

"Every game we have allowed 70 points or more, we have lost. Period," Luke said. "We know what we have to do to win. We can't allow second chances and we can't give them easy ones at the rim. And I'll tell you what, if we do those two things, we have a chance to be pretty good."
