Robert Morris releases basketball schedule
The Robert Morris men's basketball schedule might not have city rival Pitt listed, but there is still a chance the two might play.
Robert Morris, coming off a 26-11 season and an appearance in the Collegeinsiders.com tournament (CIT), is playing in the NIT Season Tip-Off tournament Nov. 12-13, and it's in the East pod at Pitt. The Colonials will play Lehigh on the opening night and could play Pitt on the second night.
Lehigh upset Duke in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament last season and is led by guard C.J. McCollum, an NBA prospect.
The Colonials' nonconference schedule also includes games at Atlantic 10 power Xavier (Nov. 17) and at Southeastern Conference opponent Arkansas (Dec. 20).
