RMU played tough all the way until the end of the game but Duquesne didn’t allow for the Colonials to go ahead. Sophomore Elijah Minnie led Robert Morris as he finished with a double-double scoring 23 points and corralling 12 rebounds. Senior Rodney Pyror wasn’t far behind in scoring as he finished with 22 points and totaled eight rebounds. Robert Morris shot 37.7 percent from the field and 34.6 percent from long range beyond the three-point arc.
