Top Story - For the first time in its 37-year Division I history, the Robert Morris University men’s basketball team takes part in the NIT Season Tip-Off, beginning Monday with an 8:30 p.m. matchup against Lehigh at the Petersen Events Center on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. The Colonials are coming off a 79-54 setback @ Rider (11/9/12) in their 2012-13 season opener as junior guard Karvel Anderson came off the bench to lead RMU with 11 points in his Robert Morris debut. The Broncs jumped out to a 40-27 halftime lead en route to the victory, shooting 50.9 percent (27-for-53) from the floor on the night. The Colonials would only convert 25.5 percent (13-of-51) of their shots, a performance that marked the second lowest shooting percentage in a game in the Andrew Toole era. RMU continues play in the 2012 NIT Season Tip-Off Tuesday, Nov. 13, against either Fordham or Pittsburgh at the Petersen Events Center in a game time to be determined. Robert Morris will also play two more games in the tournament Monday, Nov. 19, and Tuesday, Nov. 20, at a site and against opponents also to be determined.

Head Coach Andrew Toole Third Season - Penn ’03 When it came time for Robert Morris University Director of Athletics Craig Coleman, M.D., to name a new head coach for the men’s basketball program, he didn’t have to look far. Andrew Toole was introduced as the eighth head coach in the 37-year Division I history at a press conference at the Charles L. Sewall Center May 11, 2010, and the 2012-13 campaign is his third season as head coach of the Colonials. He owns an overall record of 44-26 (.629). Anyone familiar with the success RMU has had in recent seasons should be familiar with Toole. Named as former head coach Mike Rice’s top assistant in 2007-08, Toole spent the 2008-09 and 200910 seasons as Associate Head Coach at Robert Morris. In his first season at the helm in 2010-11, Toole continued RMU’s recent run of success, leading the Colonials to an overall record of 18-14 (.563), including a mark of the 12-6 (.667) in the Northeast Conference. Robert Morris advanced to its third straight NEC Tournament championship game, falling shy of earning its third consecutive title before falling in overtime @ LIU Brooklyn (3/9/11), 85-82. Despite a roster that featured just one senior for the second straight year, Toole led the Colonials to an overall record of 26-11 (.703) in 2011-12, including a mark of 13-5 (.722) in the NEC that helped Robert Morris earn the No. 3 seed in the 2012 NEC Tournament. RMU advanced to its fourth straight NEC Tournament championship game before suffering a 90-73 setback @ LIU Brooklyn (3/7/12). The Colonials accepted a bid to the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT) despite falling short of their third NCAA Tournament appearance in the last four years and advanced to the quarterfinals thanks to road victories @ Indiana State and @ Toledo. The win over the Sycamores in the first round of the 2012 CIT marked RMU’s first victory in a national postseason tournament since 1983. Toole is at the helm of an RMU program that has experienced unprecedented success over the last five years. The Colonials own NEC records for victories over the span of three, four and five years. Since the beginning of the 2007-08 season when Toole joined the staff, Robert Morris owns an overall record of 117-56 (.676), with the 117 victories both a school and NEC record for a five-year span. While RMU’s overall success is apparent, the program’s accomplishments in the NEC are also clear. Over the last five years, the Colonials have posted a mark of 71-19 (.789) against league opposition and have finished no lower than third over that span. Overall, RMU has established 132 team or individual records, with 52 of those coming under the watchful eye of Toole. Robert Morris won outright NEC regular-season titles in 2008 and 2009 and shared the championship in 2010 with Quinnipiac with Toole as a member of the staff. RMU followed up its success in the regular season by becoming the first team in NEC history in 16 years to win back-to-back NEC Tournament championships by earning a 52-50 win over Quinnipiac in the 2010 NEC Tournament championship game in Hamden, Conn. In 2008, the Colonials made their first appearance in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT), dropping an 87-81 decision to No. 1 overall seed Syracuse at the Carrier Dome. In both 2009 and 2010, RMU earned automatic berths to the NCAA Tournament thanks to winning their sixth and seventh NEC Tournament championships, respectively. In the 2009 NCAA Tournament as a No. 15 seed, the Colonials fell to eventual national runner-up Michigan State, 77-62, in the first round at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minn. In the 2010 NCAA Tournament, Robert Morris nearly upset No. 2 seed Villanova in the first round at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., before falling, 73-70, in overtime. Prior to coming to Robert Morris in 2007, Toole spent the 2006-07 season as an assistant at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. While an assistant with the Leopards, Toole assisted in all facets of the program, from recruiting to player development. He was responsible for helping recruit student-athletes that helped lead Lafayette to the 2010 Patriot League Tournament championship game against Lehigh. Between 2004 and 2006, Toole spent two years with The Hoop Group in Neptune, N.J. He served as the director of the Eastern Invitational Basketball Clinic, where he handled logistical management for the nation's largest high school exposure camp. Toole was a four-year starter at the Division I level, playing for Elon University (1998-2000) before transferring to the University of Pennsylvania (2000-03). Over his four-year career at Elon and Penn, Toole averaged 12.3 points per contest, finishing with 1,341 points in 109 games. He also posted averages of 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.2 steals per contest. Toole, who married the former Brooke Kelly June 3, 2011, resides in the Pittsburgh suburb of Mt. Lebanon, Pa.

What They’re Saying About Andrew Toole Mike Rice, Head Coach, Rutgers University “Coach Toole has had as much to do with the success of the RMU program the last three years as anyone. His tireless commitment to improve the program, whether it was recruiting, player development or game day preparation, was unmatched by any other assistant. Robert Morris basketball is in great hands.” Fran O’Hanlon, Head Coach, Lafayette College “Andrew is a smart, dedicated and excellent leader who possesses a tremendous amount of passion for the game. Above all, he is a man of strong character. He possesses all the necessary qualities to be a successful college head coach, and I am very happy for the Robert Morris community to have a person of Andrew’s caliber lead its men’s basketball program.” Fran Dunphy, Head Coach, Temple University “I certainly want to congratulate Robert Morris University and Andrew Toole as they embark on a new era of Colonial basketball. I’ve known Andy as a player and now a coach and his leadership skills are unquestioned. He has great knowledge of the game and has shown great skill in imparting that knowledge to his players.”

Head of the Class - Considered by many to be the heart and soul of the Colonials, redshirt senior guard Velton Jones put forth arguably one of the best seasons in school history in 2011-12. In addition to setting both single-season (207) and career records for free throws, Jones broke seven other junior class records. Included in that list are games started (36), points (591), field goals attempted (457), assists (167), free-throws attempted (270) and minutes played (1,096). Jones became the 20th member of the RMU 1,000-point club in 2011-12 when he exploded for 35 points in an 81-73 victory @ Monmouth (1/21/12) and finished the season with 1,259 career points. He enters Monday’s game against Lehigh ranked 11th all-time at Robert Morris in scoring (1,267 points), just 10 points shy of moving into the top 10. Jones also owns 396 career assists and needs 160 in 2012-13 to break the all-time record of 555 that is held by former point guard Forest Grant (1980-84). Velton Jones a Lou Henson Award Candidate - Thanks to one of the best seasons in school history in 2011-12, redshirt senior guard Velton Jones was one of 31 student-athletes named to the CollegeInsider.com 2012-13 Mid-Major Preseason All-America Team as well as a candidate for the Lou Henson Award. Given annually to the top student-athlete from the midmajor ranks, the Lou Henson Award watch features three players from the Northeast Conference. In addition to Jones, LIU Brooklyn’s Julian Boyd and Sacred Heart’s Shane Gibson also made the cut. Jones ranks second among active players in the NEC in assists (396) and fourth in points (1,267). Lucky Charms - Lucky Jones showed steady improvement throughout the course of his first collegiate season in 2011-12, and the sophomore forward played his best basketball of the year during the month of March. Over RMU’s final six games of the year, which included three contests in both the 2012 Northeast Conference Tournament and the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, Jones averaged 10.2 points and 6.3 rebounds while shooting 46 percent (23-for-50) from the field and producing a team-high eight steals. Jones paced Robert Morris in rebounding in 2011-12 by pulling down an average of 6.1 per game, and he became just the second freshman in school history to eclipse 200 rebounds in a season. Jones finished with 213 caroms, behind only all-time leading rebounder Anthony Dickens (1985-90), who posted 237 boards in his first season in 1985-86. A Run At the Record? While sophomore forward Lucky Jones got off to a great start rebounding the basketball in his first season in 2011-12, redshirt senior forward Russell Johnson will entered his final season of eligibility with a chance to become the program’s all-time leading rebounder. Johnson, who missed RMU’s 2012-13 season opener @ Rider (11/9/12) due to a high ankle sprain, became the 16th member of the Robert Morris 500-rebound club in 2011-12 thanks to eight boards in a 70-56 victory over in-state rival Saint Francis (Pa.) (2/11/12). He finished second for the Colonials in 2011-12 with 177 rebounds in 31 games, an average of 5.7 per contest. Johnson owns 565 career caroms and is 187 rebounds shy of becoming the program’s all-time leading rebounder. Based on RMU’s 31-game regular-season schedule, Johnson would need to average 6.0 boards a contest to eclipse the mark. Currently, former Colonials Anthony Dickens (1985-90) and Tony Lee (2004-08) share the career record of 751 rebounds. The Race to 1,000 - In addition to Russell Johnson having an opportunity in his final season of eligibility to make a run at becoming the program’s all-time leading rebounder, the redshirt senior forward is also just 131 points shy of joining the Robert Morris 1,000-point club. Johnson owns 869 career points and, barring injury, will become just the 12th player in school history to be a member of both the RMU 1,000-point and 500-rebound clubs. While Johnson has a good shot of eclipsing 1,000 career points in 2012-13, Coron Williams also has a shot. The redshirt junior guard enters Monday’s game against Lehigh with 642 career points and would need to average 11.9 points over the course of RMU’s remaining 30 games to join the exclusive fraternity. If the duo accomplish the feat, they would be the 21st and 22nd members, respectively, of the Robert Morris 1,000-point club in school history. Start Me Up - Redshirt junior guard Coron Williams, the only Colonial to start all 37 games for Robert Morris in 2011-12, is RMU’s active leader for consecutive starting assignments. Williams has started 43 straight games dating back to the 2010-11 season, the longest streak by a Colonial since redshirt senior guard Velton Jones started 70 consecutive games before having it snapped last season.

60.9 - Percent of the time Robert Morris has held an opponent under 70 points since the beginning of the 2007-08 season, with the Colonials posting a record of 89-17 (.840) in that span

The defensive pressure that Robert Morris has employed over the last five seasons has allowed the program to post each of its top three totals for largest margin of victory against a Northeast Conference opponent in school history. The Colonials earned a 91-38 victory over Bryant (2/3/11) at the Charles L. Sewall Center to not only establish a new school record in an NEC game but also tie the league mark. The record was originally set when Wagner defeated Sacred Heart, 116-63, on February 22, 2000. In fact, only four games in league annals have been decided by 50 or more points, and RMU owns two of them. Robert Morris posted a 95-45 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson (2/7/08) at the Sewall Center, while Long Island defeated Wagner, 127-77, February 11, 1998, in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Preseason Poll Notes: It marks the seventh straight year the Colonials have been picked to finish in the top three in the league ... Robert Morris was tabbed second in 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2011 and third in 2008 and 2009 ... The poll was released as part of the NEC's inaugural "Social" Media Day event, held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. ... Conducted annually, NEC coaches correctly forecast the eventual league champion last season for the first time in 13 years by picking LIU Brooklyn to defend its crown ... Over the last 25 years, the coaches have proven inaccurate 22 times or 88 percent of the time ... RMU has never been the preseason favorite to win an NEC title

Scouting the Mountain Hawks- Lehigh enters Monday’s game against Robert Morris with a record of 0-1 after dropping a 99-77 decision @ No. 18 Baylor (11/9/12) to open its 2012-13 campaign. Senior guard and Preseason All-American C.J. McCollum finished with 36 points, eight rebounds, two assists and three steals in the setback. McCollum shot 14-for-32 from the field, including 2-of-5 from beyond the arc, and was 6-for-8 at the free-throw line. Junior guard Mackey McKnight added 14 points and six assists in the loss. Lehigh returns four starters from a 2011-12 team that finished with an overall record of 27-8 and advanced to the second round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. McCollum averaged 21.9 points and 6.5 rebounds per contest last season, ranking fifth in the nation in scoring. Senior forward Gabe Knutson contributed 12.2 points and 5.6 rebounds a year ago, while McKnight averaged 8.8 points and 3.6 assists. Lehigh Head Coach - The 2012-13 season is Dr. Brett Reed’s (Eckerd ’95) sixth as the Murray H. Goodman ’48 Head Men’s Basketball Coach at Lehigh University. In five years on the sideline, Reed has the most victories by a Lehigh head coach in his first five seasons and has won 75 percent of his games at Stabler Arena, which is second on the Lehigh leaderboard. His 60.0 career Division I winning percentage is tops among active Patriot League coaches. Last season, Reed led the Mountain Hawks to a school-record 27 wins. RMU’s Last Game - Nurideen Lindsey led four Broncs in double figures scoring with 26 points as Rider posted a 79-54 victory over Robert Morris, Nov. 9, in the 2012-13 season opener for both programs at Alumni Gymnasium. Redshirt junior guard Coron Williams would give RMU an early 6-2 lead thanks to a pair of three-pointers, but a 12-2 run by the Broncs that featured a pair of layups from Lindsey and four points from Daniel Stewart allowed Rider to open up a 14-8 advantage with 12:28 to play in the first half. Sophomore forward Lucky Jones would hit a pair of free throws to help Robert Morris pull to within 14-10, but Rider would ride a 16-4 surge to take its biggest lead of the first stanza, 30-14, with 5:31 left before the break. Lindsey provided 16 points in the first half for the Broncs on 5-of-10 shooting from the floor, including 2-for-4 from long range, and a perfect 4-for-4 performance at the free-throw line. Rider eventually entered the second half with a 40-27 lead and stretched its cushion to 47-30 in the first three minutes after the break. The Colonials struggled finding any offensive rhythm in the contest, shooting just 13-for-51 (25.5 percent) on the game, including 20 percent (4-for-20) from beyond the arc. The Broncs biggest lead of the contest came with 3:19 remaining, when Jonathan Thompson capped a 14-7 sput with a three-pointer that gave Rider a 76-49 advantage.Lindsey shot 10-of-15 from the field for Rider and added four rebounds and five assists despite committing nine turnovers. Stewart and Anthony Myles each added 11 points, while Thompson contributed 10 points. Robert Morris was led by junior guard Karvel Anderson , who finished with 11 points in his RMU debut. Anderson shot 4-for-11 from the floor and was 3-for5 at the free-throw line and also added four rebounds. Jones added nine points and five boards for the Colonials, while redshirt senior guard Velton Jones, hobbled by cramps the majority of the second half, played 19 minutes and finished with eight points, three assists and three steals.

Welcome To Robert Morris - Junior guard Karvel Anderson saw his first action as a Division I student-athlete in RMU’s 2012-13 season opener @ Rider (11/9/12), and in 26 minutes off the bench supplied the Colonials with a game-high 11 points. Anderson shot 4-for-11 from the field and was 3-of-5 at the free-throw line and also grabbed four rebounds and dishing out an assist. Anderson is the second active Colonial on the roster to lead Robert Morris scoring in his first Division I game. Redshirt senior guard Velton Jones scored a team-high 15 points for RMU in his Division I debut @ Syracuse (11/11/09) as part of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer. Maybe it’s a good sign, as Robert Morris advanced to the 2010 NCAA Tournament later that season. A Special Season - Redshirt senior guard Velton Jones became the seventh different Colonial in school history to eclipse the 500-point plateau in a season in 2011-12 and finished the year with 591 points, the second highest total in the RMU single-season record book. The total for Jones trails only Robert Morris all-time leading scorer Myron Walker (1990-94), who scored 614 points as a sophomore in 1991-92 en route to Northeast Conference Player of the Year accolades. Even with his ability to score, Jones also finished with a team-high 167 assists in 2011-12, which ranks as the fifth highest total in single-season history. Jones is the only Colonial in school history to own top five totals in both points and assists in the same season. Golden Era - While Robert Morris is in the midst of its golden era in the 37-year history as a Division I program, an area that gets credit for that success is RMU’s ability to convert from beyond the arc. Redshirt junior guard Coron Williams posted a team-high 87 three-pointers in 2011-12, the second highest total in the RMU single-season record book. Former Colonial Scott Shepard (1988-91) owns the single-season mark with 93 during his first year with RMU in 1988-89. In 2011-12, Williams became the third player in the last four years to hit at least 80 three-pointers in a season and is also the eighth different Colonial in the last 11 years to post one of the top 10 single-season marks in three-point field goals. Dishing The Dimes - A key reason the Colonials made a push for their third NEC Tournament championship in four years and a spot in the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament was due to the job RMU’s two point guards, redshirt senior Velton Jones and junior Anthony Myers-Pate, did in creating offense. In the last 19 contests of the season, a stretch in which RMU went 14-5 (.737), the duo dished out 154 assists against just 81 turnovers, an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.90. Myers was extremely efficient, posting 66 dimes against just 23 miscues (2.87 assist-to-turnover ratio). Myers finished the 2011-12 campaign ranked third in the Northeast Conference in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.82), while Jones ranked fifth (1.69). The Comeback Kids - Facing a double-digit deficit in 2011-12 didn’t seem to be a problem for Robert Morris. In seven of their last 11 road tilts of the season the Colonials fell behind by double digits but came back to win four of them. In a 67-60 win @ Indiana State (3/13/12) in the first round of the 2012 CIT, RMU fell behind by 12 in the first half, 21-9, and faced double-digit deficits seven times in the first eight minutes of the second half before roaring back for the victory. The win @ Indiana State marked the ninth time RMU has climbed out of a double-digit deficit to earn a victory in three seasons under head coach Andrew Toole. Included in that stretch is a 15-point deficit in the second half of an 81-73 overtime win @ Monmouth (1/21/12). Rockin The Chalk - Redshirt senior guard Velton Jones led Robert Morris in scoring in 2011-12 with an average of 16.0 points per game, and no Colonial in school history has shown a penchant for getting to the free-throw line better. In a 71-64 win @ No. 2 Wagner (3/4/12) in the 2012 NEC Tournament semifinals, Jones finished 14-for-16 at the charity stripe, one of 11 times on the year he visited the chalk at least 10 times. In 2011-12, Jones established new RMU school records for free throws in a season (207) and career (397). He broke the career record thanks to a 5-for-7 performance at the charity stripe in a 6760 victory @ Indiana State (3/13/12) in the first round of the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, including a 4-for-4 showing in the final 23 seconds to seal the win. In the 2012-13 season opener @ Rider (11/9/12), Jones finished 5-for-7 at the charity stripe to push his career total in free throws to 402.

Did You Know? Redshirt senior guard Velton Jones became the sixth Colonial in the last eight years to lead the NEC in steals against league foes in 2011-12. Jones averaged 2.39 thefts per contest, recording at least three steals in eight of RMU’s 16 tilts against league opponents. Jones joins former Colonials Tony Lee (2004-08) and Jeremy Chappell (2005-09) to turn the trick. Lee led the NEC against league opposition in steals in 2004-05 (2.1 spg), 2006-07 (2.6 spg) and 2007-08 (2.4 spg), while Chappell accomplished the feat in both 2005-06 (2.2 spg) and 2008-09 (2.6 spg). Jones is the fourth Colonial overall to lead the NEC in steals against league foes, joining former Colonial Gene Nabors (1995-2000).

2012-13 RMU Basketball

Big Mac - Junior forward Mike McFadden hopefully showed a glimpse of what’s to come in the future in RMU’s final game of the 2011-12 season in the quarterfinals of the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament. McFadden paced the Colonials in a 67-61 setback @ Fairfield (3/21/12) with a career-high 20 points, converting eight of his 12 shots from the floor. He also grabbed seven rebounds against the Stags, including six offensive boards. A transfer from Iona, McFadden became eligible to play for the Colonials in December of 2011, and in 27 games in 2011-12 he provided averages of 8.4 points and 4.3 rebounds while shooting 53.9 percent (90-for-167) from the field, which paced Colonials that scored at least 200 points on the year. In The Clutch - You certainly could say that Robert Morris has a flair for the dramatic. In a 55-53 win @ Sacred Heart (2/23/12), redshirt senior guard Velton Jones buried a three-pointer with 0.1 seconds to play that helped give the Colonials the victory. It marked the second career buzzer beater for Jones, who also turned the trick in the semifinals of the 2011 NEC Tournament in a 64-62 victory @ Quinnipiac (3/6/11).

The Rock - Guard Velton Jones has been a rock for Robert Morris over the last four seasons, as the redshirt senior is in his final season of eligibility in 2012-13 owning the longest active streak for games played. Jones has played in 105 straight contests for RMU dating back to the 2009-10 campaign and owns 99 career starts, far and away the highest mark for a Colonial. Jones is just one start shy of becoming the fifth player in school history to start at least 100 career games, and he needs 22 starting assignments to break the school record of 120 that is held by former Colonial Jeremy Chappell (2005-09). Defense Wins Championships - At the heart of the resurgence of the RMU basketball program over the last six seasons has been defense. Despite a 67-61 setback @ Fairfield (3/21/12) in the quarterfinals of the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, Robert Morris still owns a record to 89-17 (.840) since the beginning of the 2007-08 campaign when holding its opponent to less than 70 points. In three seasons under head coach Andrew Toole, the Colonials are 38-10 (.792) when turning the trick. Toole Time - Robert Morris is led by head coach Andrew Toole, who completed his seocnd season as head coach of the Colonials by leading RMU to an overall record of 26-11 in 2011-12. In Toole’s 70 games on the sidelines over the last two seasons, RMU has held its opponents to 70 points or less in 48 contests, an amazing 68.6 percent of the time. Included in those 48 contests are 22 holding its opponent to less than 60 points, with RMU owning an astounding mark of 21-1 (.955) in those games. RMU’s only loss is a 58-53 setback @ Cleveland State (11/29/10), and the Colonials have won 20 straight when turning the trick entering the 2012-13 campaign. Board Games - Part of following the formula in regard to being successful for Robert Morris over the last six seasons has been the program’s ability to crash the boards. Since the beginning of the 2007-08 campaign, Robert Morris owns a record of 90-15 (.857) when the Colonials are even or better in rebounding in a game, including an 86-13 (.869) mark when outrebounding their opponent. In Andrew Toole’s three seasons as head coach, Robert Morris has posted a record of 34-9 (.791) when outrebounding its opponent, including a mark of 19-5 (.792) in 2011-12. RMU finished tops in the Northeast Conference in rebounding defense last year, allowing an average of 30.7 caroms per contest.

Off The Deep End - Another Colonial to save his best of the season for last in 2011-12 was redshirt junior guard Coron Williams. A member of the 2012 All-Northeast Conference Tournament Team, Williams averaged a teamhigh 14.2 points over the final six games of the year, a stretch that included three games each in the NEC Tournament and the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament. Over that span Williams shot 49.1 percent (28for-57) from the field, including an astounding 53.7 percent (22-for-41) from beyond the arc. In 2011-12, Williams ranked fourth in the NEC in three-point field goal percentage at 41 percent (87-for-212). Long Distance Dialing - Thanks to tying an RMU single-game record for three-pointers with 16 in an 87-68 victory over Monmouth (3/1/12) in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Northeast Conference Tournament, the Colonials eclipsed 200 three-pointers on the year and finished the season with 240. It marks the eighth time in the last nine years that Robert Morris has eclipsed 200 three-pointers in a season. The top two sharpshooters from long range for RMU in 2011-12 were redshirt junior guard Coron Williams and redshirt senior guard Velton Jones, who combined for 147 three-pointers. That total is the second highest by an RMU tandem in school history.

Streaker - By finishing with just seven points @ Memphis (12/29/11), redshirt senior guard Velton Jones had his streak of double figure scoring games dating back to the 2010-11 campaign snapped at 19. Over that span, Jones averaged 16.6 points per contest. The streak stands as the third longest in school history and fell one game shy of allowing Jones to become only the third player in school history to score at least 10 points in 20 consecutive contests. Jones finished out the 2011-12 campaign by scoring in double figures in his final eight games of the year, the longest current streak by a Colonial, averaging 15.5 points per game over that span.

Robert Morris celebrated its 25th season of playing its home games at the Charles L. Sewall Center in 2009-10. The facility was dedicated in 1985 and named for the man who served Robert Morris as president from 1967 until 1989. The Sewall Center has been the site where the Northeast Conference Tournament champion has been crowned in men’s basketball a total of five times in the last 27 years, with the Colonials winning four of those titles. RMU won the NEC Tournament on its home court in 1989, 1990, 1992 and 2009, while in 1986 No. 2 seed Marist won the championship with a 57-56 win over No. 1 seed Fairleigh Dickinson. The 2009 NEC Tournament men's basketball championship game held at the Sewall Center featured the first sell-out crowd in school history, with 3,227 fans packed into the arena to watch Robert Morris post a 48-46 win over Mount St. Mary’s that was televised nationally on ESPN2. Former forward Dallas Green (2006-10) hit the game-winning shot with 2.2 seconds to play to help lift the Colonials to their sixth NEC Tournament title. In addition, the Robert Morris women’s basketball team claimed back-to-back NEC Tournament championships at the Sewall Center in 2007 and 2008. A look at the year-by-year record for Robert Morris playing at home since the opening of the Sewall Center in 1985:

The Need for Three Over the course of the last decade, converting the three-point shot and Robert Morris have become synonymous. Despite having its string of consecutive seasons with at least 200 three-pointers snapped at six by finishing with 197 in 2009-10, the Colonials are still near the top of the Northeast Conference over the last 10 years in three-point field goals made per game. Since the start of the 2001-02 season, the Colonials have averaged 7.07 threepointers per contest, which ranks second behind St. Francis (N.Y.), which has averaged 7.09 three-pointers a game. In 2011-12, redshirt sophomore guard Coron Williams paced Robert Morris by draining 87 three-pointers, the second highest total in the RMU single-season record book.
