1.) Good preview on Robert Morris provided via the link below. They have been picked to finish1st or 2nd in the NEC depending on the different previews that are out there, and they return a large part of their 26 win team from a year ago.
2.) Robert Morris has a ton of guards, and their frontcourt is thankfully not as big as Baylor’s, but instead more of what you are used to seeing in the mid-major college hoops world. Senior guard Velton Jones makes RM tick, and that should make for an entertaining matchup with Mackey tomorrow night.
3.) Best part of the prestigious NIT tournament is that win and advance, much like March Madness. Both teams will be eager to hit the court tomorrow night and get back on track, as each lost their openers by 20+ points (Robert Morris lost to Rider by 25). Win and you guarantee yourself another BCS conference opponent in Pitt, with a chance to play at the World’s Most Famous Arena in the NIT Semis on Thanksgiving-Eve in NYC!
