Robert Morris' men's basketball schedule for the 2013-14 season was released Monday and it features a rematch against the preseason No. 1 according to numerous magazines, Kentucky.

This time, however, the Colonials, who shocked the Wildcats in the opening round of the NIT, 59-57, at the Sewell Center in Moon Township, will be traveling to Rupp Arena in Lexington on Nov. 17.

The 15-game nonconference schedule also includes road games against Alabama (Jan. 4), Oklahoma State (Dec. 30) and city-rival Duquesne (Dec. 14), and home games against Savannah State (Nov. 9), Texas-Arlington (Nov. 21), Toledo (Dec. 7) and Campbell (Dec. 18).

“It's going to be an immense challenge,” Robert Morris basketball coach Andy Toole said. “The success we've had over the years has made it more difficult to find games. It's going to be a challenge, but an exciting challenge.

“We have some veterans returning and good group of new players. Hopefully, the schedule prepares them for the Northeast Conference schedule.”

Robert Morris opens NEC action at Sacred Heart (Jan. 9) and Bryant (Jan. 11). The first NEC home game is against rival St. Francis on Jan. 16.

The Colonials will play an exhibition game Oct. 28 against California (Pa.) University.
