Dayton, Ohio – The Sinclair (13-0/3-0 OCCAC) Men’s basketball team tied the school record for best start to a season and longest winning streak with the 84-70 victory over visiting Wittenberg University JV team (3-5).  This marks the 13 consecutive win this season which ties the Sinclair Men’s Basketball record for best start to a season and longest winning streak.
