The Highlanders are one of just five programs in the country with at least 10 wins.

Not only has NJIT started 10-2, for the first time since 1994-95, Brian Kennedy's team has reached the 10-win plateau earlier in 2018-19 than in any season in the 97-year history of the program (at any level of competition).

NJIT improved to 5-1 on the road and are one of just three teams in Division-I with five road victories this season (Stony Brook, Furman).
