go beavers!

Caltech has 950 undergraduates and doesn't offer athletic scholarships. The Beavers, its basketball team, hadn't won a game in its division for 25 years. They did, in the season finale, last Tuesday night. The crowd, including at least one Nobel laureate (I hear from Slate's Hang Up and Listen podcast), went bananas.

(The women's team finished the season 0-25.)
