PICK: I’m going to take a stab on Mount St. Mary’s. Probably not going near this one, though. The Mountaineers haven’t exactly been lighting up the scoreboards this year; they’ve hit 70 points in only four games so far. That said, Mount St. Mary’s has been pretty effective on defense during comparable matchups. As for Robert Morris, they’ve been a mixed bag at best. If they play well, the Colonials should provide an interesting challenge in this one, however.
