Wow, I checked the ESPN score and was shocked!  Just like football...

How many guys did Robert Morris lose?

Tv commentators suggested that they've pretty much got an all new batch of starters this year.  55-20 with 12 minutes to go.

Edit: 72-32 with a bit over three minutes left.  My basketball competency is not sufficient for me to make a judgement on whether the lopsided score is more a result of Lafayette's strength or RMU's lack thereof.

Elsewhere in the league:
Bucknell over Marist 69-64 with just under a minute to go
Temple over American 27-20 with 13:30 left in the second half
Villanova over Lehigh 32-30 at the half.  Worth noting that last year, we were over Nova with about five minutes to go, and we saw how the rest of that season went.
Army over Air Force 44-36 with 2:19 left in the first
Loyola's playing TTU at 10:00
Navy's playing TSU at 10:00

Final score:  77-50.  I hope we do better against W. Virginia on Sunday than Robert Morris did against us tonight.

Lehigh has been leading Villanova all night... this is NOT good!!

So, since CBSN is the home of Patriot League basketball, I'm getting ready to watch MSU at Navy.  They show highlights of the Lehigh-Nova game.  The commentator, instead of giving some stats and facts on a game where an underdog has led a top 25 team most of the game, tries to sing, poorly, the Billy Joel Allentown song... and then he proceeds to say.. it must be halfway between the two schools.

... Folks, this is the network of the Patriot League!

Holy Crap! What was that? Up 35 at one point! Woo hoo!
They must have pulled an AP story for the Bball web site. It refers to us as the maroon and white several times. Um we're the LEOPARDS!

Yes, a nice win.  But how excited should we be?  We have tons of experience, and did RMU lose a bunch of guys?

Meanwhile, a moribund Navy teams (9 wins, 4 in PL last year) predicted to finish near the bottom pushed Michigan State to the brink last night, losing by four or five I think.  The game was in Annapolis.  Meanwhile, Lehigh lost to ranked Nova in Allentown after leading most of the game.   It's going to be an interesting year...

Again, wow!  Lafayette comes away with a super nice win and you all are talking about Lehigh, Navy, etc...  

Guess I'll say it: Congrats guys.  It's super to open the season with a road win to a team that gave us fits in the past.  Good luck against West Virginia!

Which is why our experience is going to help.

In fact Robert Morris returned three starters last night, and six overall from their 2013-2014 team.......
