IN: Robert Morris Wears Northeast Crown

Robert Morris 48, Mount St. Mary's 46

Dallas Green made just one basket all night, but it was huge, lifting Robert Morris over Mount St. Mary's in the Northeast Conference finals.

Green's short jumper with just three seconds left to play gave the Colonials a two point lead and the game. The Colonials will be making their 6th NCAA appearance. Usually a 16 seed, they have compiled a record of 1-5 over the years. In 1982, they beat Georgia Southern, 64-54, in the first round before falling to Purdue, 55-53.

This will be their first trip to the NCAAs since 1992.

Jeremy Chappell scored 16 points to lead the 24-10, 15-3 Colonials.
