RMU men to play exhibition at Kent Sate on Sunday


The Robert Morris and Kent State men’s basketball teams have decided to turn their closed scrimmage on Sunday into an exhibition game to help raise money for hurricane relief efforts.

The game will tip at noon at the M.A.C. Center at Kent, Ohio.

“Going back to our Ireland trip, which was a fantastic experience for our guys, and through the official start of practice, I think our guys have had a productive preseason,” RMU coach Andrew Toole said. “We’re looking forward to seeing how they respond Sunday against a quality opponent in a game that’s for a good cause.”

RMU returns four starters in 2018-19, including senior guard Matty McConnell, sophomore guard Jon Williams and sophomore forward Charles Bain and Koby Thomas.

The Colonials officially begin the season Nov. 6 in Los Angeles against USC.

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.
