The Robert Morris men’s basketball team has released their 2018-2019 schedule. The team recently announced that they will be playing all of their home games at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center this season. That first home game is against Mount Aloysius on November 14th. All times are to be determined.

The team will start the season off playing in the 2018 National College Basketball Hall of Fame Classic. That tournament will take them all over as the first game of the year will be against USC in Los Angeles on November 6th. After that, the team will travel to Springfield, Missouri to take on Missouri State. That game is on November 9th.

The last two games for the tournament will be on November 17th and November 19th. The game on November 17th will be at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center and against Mississippi Valley State while the game on the November 19th will be in DeLand, Florida.

Some other highlights of the non-conference schedule include three games against power-five conference teams. These games include the USC game to start the year, as well as trips to Purdue (November 23rd) and Louisville (December 21).

The conference season kicks off against Fairleigh Dickinson on January 3rd at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center here at Robert Morris. The Colonials hope to improve upon their 2017-2018 record 16-17 (9-9).
