UPDATE: Robert Morris loses 77-68.
If you want to see if Robert Morris suffers a letdown from its win over Kentucky last week, the Colonials are back in action Monday night in the NIT at Providence.
The 7 p.m. game is being televised on ESPN News.
Robert Morris coach Andy Toole admitted that he has had to keep his team grounded after last Tuesday’s 59-57 win over visiting Kentucky.
“It’s the biggest part, for every game, whether you get too high or get too low or anywhere in between — making sure they have a healthy respect for what they’re going to face, but also that they’re prepared and confident that they can go and execute things,” Toole said. “It’s the hardest part, it really is, and it’s maybe the most important part.”
Robert Morris is 24-10. Providence is 18-14. The winner will travel to Baylor for an NIT quarterfinal game.
