'Cats lucky only to be down six

Give the first half to Robert Morris.
If not for turnovers (13) and fouls (11) the Colonials would be up by more than 28-22 at the break.
RMU is doing what every team in the last two months have done to the Wildcats. They're making threes and getting in the face of the Villanova shooters.
The Colonials have shown no fear of their opponent from the big, bad Big East Conference. They're whipping the Wildcats on the boards (21-10 overall, 7-3 on the offensive glass), beating Villanova to spots and are the better team after the first 20 minutes.
RMU was able to maintain it's lead even though leading scorer Karon Abraham (ine points) sat out nearly the last six minutes after he picked up his second personal foul.
The Wildcats, meanwhile, have been pitiful on offense. Villanova shot 3-for-17 after a 4-for-6 start. The free throw percentage isn't much better. The Wildcats are shooting 54.5 percent from the stripe.
Here's how bad it is for Villanova. Taylor King is the leading scorer at the break with six points. Reynolds, Maalik Wayns and Mouphtaou Yarou have four points each.
If this keeps up, the charter will leave sometime late this afternoon or early this evening.
