    Robert Morris (1-9) and ranked 345th
    RM wins 73-72

    In short, this is a game we have to win. I don’t care where it’s being played. For what it’s worth, the stars seem to be aligned and point to a victory. We have played a far more demanding OOC schedule (ranked 2nd vs. 176th)…………Coming off exams, we should be well-rested while RMU is coming off back-to-back-to –back losses over the past two weeks………We notched a win in our last game – albeit vs. a D-II type opponent – while RMU’s one and only win is a more distant memory and it was earned against an 0-9 Mississippi Valley State team ranked #345…………And, picking up on a point raised by Bison137, RMU is playing short-handed these days which you would hope might result in a more focused defensive stand by the Brown and White on their two “go-to” players: 6’5” Sr. Shooting Guard, Rodney Pryor, and 6’9” Sophomore Forward, Elliah Minnie. I’m saying it will be easy but the two account for 50% of all RMU points – much the same as what TK and AP mean to us. The tie-breaker on the stat sheet might be at the point where KR would seemingly hold the a distinct advantage over RMU’s Kavon Stewart in both A/TOs (2.8 vs. 1.5) and Pts./Game (10..5 vs. 5.2). Hey, it’s just a thought.

    Of interest, too, might be how Bucknell won their game against RM back on Nov. 18th

    I’m looking to see if JG is now fully healed from his ankle sprain and can contribute like he did last year. That could be a huge boost to our production.

    Man, the chatter on here concerning hoops has really dropped off. I guess a 1-7 start will do that to you.

    Biggie tonight, put up or shut up OOC. Need a win. This would be a nice springboard win into the 2 home games pre Christmas. Can we get 3-0 in our stockings?

    No holiday cheer here. I’m hoping we win one of these 3. And I still think tonight is our best shot.
    Hopefully I’m just a grinch and we turn things around, starting tonight! I’ll be watching, as always.

    Losing four scholarship players to injury/transfer and then losing seven games can take the starch out of any fan base. As mentioned here several times, this is a real acid test for a coaching staff.

    Perhaps the only positive the program has seen recently is getting a decent guard and two big men in next year’s class. Also noticed we’ve taken a shot at a highly rated pf (Cameron Krutwig ’17) out of suburban Chicago.

    I’d add KL’s production to the (short) list of bright spots. Meaningful contribution from a frosh is always good, and something you can never bank on.

    Holy crap. Just turned on espnlv pre-game, and Fallon just said TK is out with injury.

    Just heard from a relaible source, TK= day to day, not very serious at this point.
