Another player has chosen to leave the Robert Morris program this season as Rasheem Dunn leaves the program with no years of eligibility remaining.

Before his departure, Dunn was leading the team in scoring with 12.5 points per game and was a highly valuable asset to a Colonials team who is still searching for their identity as they still look for their first Horizon League win of the season.

Dunn decided to spend his final year with Robert Morris after transferring from St. John’s, where he spent two seasons averaging just under 11 points per game.

Without Dunn, the Colonials will need to find more production out of their guards. Kam Farris is one of those players that could fill in nicely as he has the most experience on the team after starting 16 games last season and averaging eight points per game.

This season Farris has improved, averaging 11 points per game and is one of the best shooters on the team, shooting 50 percent from the field and 49 percent from beyond the arc.

Another option is Enoch Cheeks, who has played a valuable role off the bench for RMU this season averaging 7.7 points per game. He is second on the team in rebounds with 5.6 rebounds per game.

Robert Morris is back in action tonight when they take on Cleveland State at 7:00 p.m. It will be interesting to see how the team responds without their leading scorer out there on the floor.
