Looking back

Robert Morris made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1992 when the Colonials defeated Mount St. Mary's for the Northeast Conference Tournament title. Robert Morris, a 15th seed, plays Michigan State a few hours from now.

The 1992 Robert Morris teams has a local connection in former Fort Cherry High School standout Wade Timmerson, shown here in a photo from a Robert Morris media guide.

One of the great players in Rangers' history, Timmerson helped Robert Morris to the tournament in 1990, 1991 and 1992. The Colonials lost first-round games to Arizona, Kansas and UCLA. Timmerson, a 2007 inductee into the RMU Athletic Hall of Fame, ranks second in Colonials' history in assists (484) and 23rd in points (868).
