  Tickets can be purchased through the RMU athletics website at rmucolonials.com or by phone at 412-397-4949. Students and seniors will be able to get in for $4 while general admission will be $7.

  The team would appreciate anyone who is free that weekend to come down to the Island as they attempt to capture their first CHA title.
