RMU players will remember Tuesday “for rest of their lives”

tooleandy180x193Andy Toole, the 32-year-old basketball coach at Robert Morris, set the scene for Tuesday night’s first-round NIT game between the host Colonials and visiting Kentucky, which until April 8 remains the defending national champions.

“It will be an incredible environment,” Toole told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, “a great experience and it will be an experience that our players will remember for the rest of their lives.”

As Toole points out, “It’s not like we haven’t played high-major schools,” but rarely has RMU played those schools on campus.

Robert Morris played at Xavier and at Arkansas this year, losing the former 61-59 and the latter 79-74.

As for home games, the Colonials out-of-conference home schedule included Lehigh, Fordham, Bowling Green, Cleveland State, Ohio and Duquense.
