OLEAN, N.Y.– This morning, St. Bonaventure women’s basketball announced that they will play Robert Morris in a home-and-home series this season.

Robert Morris will travel to the Reilly Center on November 9, which will likely be the team’s opening game of the 2021-22 season. Then, on December 19, the Bonnies will make the trek down to Moon Township to play the return game in the series.

This series will mark the second and third games announced on RMU’s schedule as the Colonials are set to continue their annual home game against Pitt Johnstown on November 23.

Last season RMU finished with a 4-13 overall record in their first season of Horizon League play.

As for St. Bonaventure, they also struggled as well, posting a 6-15 overall record and a 5-12 record in A-10 action.
