But for one night, Beaver Fever took over the campus after Caltech's men's basketball team beat Occidental, 46-45 on Tuesday night. It was Caltech's first win in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference since January 23, 1985 when they beat the University of La Verne, 48-47.
To put the streak into perspective, senior forward Ryan Elmquist - who made the game winning free throw - is the team's oldest player, born in 1989...four years into the streak.
With the win, the Beavers finish the season at 5-20, easily their best season in years.
