PITTSBURGH — Tyler Kohl had his eighth double-double of the season, and Mustafa Jones scored 15 points on 7 of 10 shooting to help Central Connecticut State beat Robert Morris, 65-58, on Saturday night to snap a six-game skid.

Kohl scored 11 of his 17 points in the final nine minutes and finished with 10 rebounds and seven assists. Deion Bute added 12 points for CCSU (13-16, 6-10 Northeast Conference).

Chris Coalmon's 3-pointer gave Robert Morris (15-14, 9-7) a 9-7 lead, and the Blue Devils trailed until Kohl made a layup that capped an 11-2 run and made it 43-41 with 11 minutes to play. Kohl converted a 3-point play, Bute made a layup and Tyson Baptiste hit a 3 during an 8-2 spurt that gave CCSU a six-point lead about four minutes later. Kohl converted another 3-point play that made it 62-54 with 1:45 left and the Blue Devils held on from there.

Dachon Burke led RMU with 24 points.

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.
