1902 : MAC Defeats Alma, 102-3

February 1, 2018 all-day

On Sunday — Feb. 1, 1902 — the Michigan Agricultural College (MAC) Aggies hosted Alma College in East Lansing. It was George Denman’s debut as MAC’s coach and what an opener it was, a 102-3 clobbering of the Scots. In 1902, the rules stated the each field goal was worth three points, and, that day, the Aggies tallied 34 baskets to Alma’s one. Still today, MAC’s 99-point victory margin stands as the all-time record.
