'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Robert Morris remained unbeaten in Northeast Conference action Saturday despite being undersized and outmanned.

But the one thing the Colonials weren't was outplayed.

The Colonials, using only eight players because of suspensions and defections, rallied from a seven-point deficit to defeat Wagner, 74-70, at Sewall Center.

Wagner (9-10, 3-3) was the NEC preseason favorite.

It's the first time Robert Morris has started the NEC with six consecutive victories.

Karvel Anderson led Robert Morris (10-10, 6-0 NEC) with 21 points. Freshman guard Kavon Stewart had 10 points, all from the free-throw line. He was 6 for 6 from the line in the second half.

Robert Morris led 33-31 at halftime, but Wagner went up 45-38 on two baskets by Latif Rivers, who had 19 points.

The Colonials went on an 18-8 run to grab a 56-53 lead. The never trailed again.

Wagner was 4 for 9 from the free-throw line during the final seven minutes.

Robert Morris' Anthony Myers-Pate chipped in 12 points, and Lucky Jones had 10. Aaron Tate, who had nine rebounds, hit a free throw with 5.1 seconds left to seal the victory.

Naofall Folahan had 14 points and 12 rebounds for Wagner. Mario Moody, Jones' cousin, had 15.

Robert Morris will play host to Bryant at 8 p.m. Thursday. The game will be televised on ESPNU.
