Dachon Burke hit 4 of 5 3-pointers and scored 27 points as Robert Morris walloped Bryant, 83-60, in a Northeast Conference battle Thursday at Duquesne.

Burke, who had a career-high 29 points in a 96-82 win over LIU-Brooklyn on Saturday, knocked down 11 of 14 shots from the field, and the Colonials hit 30 of 61 from the floor collectively. Koby Thomas added 15 points and grabbed eight rebounds, and Matty McConnell (Chartiers Valley) scored 13 points for Robert Morris (15-13, 9-6), which has won two straight following a four-game skid.

Bosko Kostur finished with 16 points to lead Bryant (3-25, 2-13), which shot 37.1 percent from the field (23 for 62), including just 4 of 20 from distance.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
