Robert Morris’ Horizon League schedule looks a little different than it did 24 hours ago. The conference announced in a statement today that Friday’s game at Northern Kentucky and Sunday’s game at Wright State are cancelled.

Before the season, the Horizon League implemented a COVID-19 policy vetted by multiple membership groups and approved by the Horizon League Council, that “contests that are canceled due to COVID-19 are to be considered forfeits unless deemed a no contest by the Commissioner.

That being said, the game against Northern Kentucky has been ruled a no-contest, while the game against Wright State has been ruled a forfeit for Wright State and will be recorded as a 2-0 win for Robert Morris and will improve their record to 6-6 overall and 4-3 Horizon League record.

After all the chaos, the Colonials have added a new opponent in Youngstown State, traveling to the Beeghly Center on Saturday, January 8 at 1 p.m.
