NJIT still cashing in on shocking victory over Michigan

After stunning Michigan two weeks ago, New Jersey Institute of Technology still isn't done celebrating its program-defining victory.

The NJIT bookstore had a strong uptick in T-shirt sales after the 72-70 win at Crisler Center on Dec. 6, with most of the orders apparently coming from fans of rival schools Michigan State and Ohio State.

On Monday, the bookstore started selling a commemorative shirt, reading "NJIT Victory" and "NJIT 72, Michigan 70".

That loss started a three-game skid for Michigan (6-4) which followed with a setback against Eastern Michigan and a 27-point blowout loss at No. 3 Arizona on Saturday.

NJIT is 4-7 on the season.
