Robert Morris struggled most of the game as Mount Saint Mary played a tough game taking the win from the Colonials. The crowd was live and the gym roared as both teams fans cheered for their teams. The game opened up with MSM winning the toss up and scoring a 3. After that MSM lead most of the game getting open look baskets and multiple dunks which motivated them to keep going.
The Colonials (23-10) had gone to four straight title games, but their key players struggled Saturday. Velton Jones scored just nine points on 2-of-17 shooting, Coron Williams had just eight points and Russell Johnson and Lucky Jones each fouled out. This made for a all around bad game for the colonials.
They seem to find some hope as with 4min left in the 2nd half they played close defense and scored back to back 3’s cutting the lead to within 7. But that was not enough to take the win for the colonials.
The colonials had a solid year and to bad it couldn’t end with a NEC championship and a ring as they hope but it’s not over yet. since RMU has clinched the #1 seed in the regular season they will get to play in the NIT. As Mount Saint Mary will continue on to play for the NEC title.
