PSR Logo
Karvel Anderson scored 36 points to lead Robert Morris over Sacred Heart, 79-70, in their NEC opener on Thursday night in Fairfield, Conn.

Anderson was 15 of 19 from the floor, including 7 of 9 from 3-point range, as the Colonials took a nine-point halftime lead and held off a late Sacred Heart charge for the victory.

Anderson, the Colonials leading scorer at 17.3 points per game, had 14 by halftime. He got even better over the final 20 minutes, scoring 22 of the Colonials' final 34 points.

"It was one of those evenings where you could see Karvel was feeling it," said Robert Morris head coach Andy Toole after the game. "He mixed up his shots and his teammates found him."

Robert Morris built a nine-point halftime lead and extended it to 12 midway through the second half. Sacred Heart cut the lead to 72-70 on a De'von Barnett free throw with just two minutes left, but Anderson answered with a jumper and his final 3-pointer of the night to put RMU up 77-70. A pair of Lucky Jones free throws ended the scoring.

Anderson also had 5 rebounds and 3 steals, while Jones added 17 for the Colonials.

Mostafa Abdel Latif led Sacred Heart with 17 points and 12 rebounds.

The Colonials are in action again at noon on Saturday when they travel to Smithfield, Rhode Island, to face Bryant.
