MSIT the SIHSL Tournament Champions
The last time MSIT won the SI Championship was 35 years ago in 1976-77. Back then, the team was given a proclamation and their names were listed. In 1992, the Staten Island High School League Tournament was created in which basketball teams on Staten Island would formally compete against one another under PSAL rules.
From 1992 to 2010 - MSIT fought an uphill battle to get into the finals. On Saturday, February 12th, 2011, MSIT won over St. Peters through an intense display of artistry and team play. The final score was 57 - 54. Click here to read the details in the Staten Island Advance.
