Friday’s NCAA basketball game between the Robert Morris Colonials and the Fort Wayne Mastodons will take place at the UPMC Events Center.
Robert Morris had a tough test against Wright State in their most recent game, losing 101-76 at home. This game exposed the offensive shortcomings of the Colonials. The team is ranked 221st in the US with an average of 73.2 points per contest and a respectable percentage of field goals of 43.8. Their free throw percentage is 70.9 and their three-point accuracy when shooting is 32.6%, both of which could use some work. The club still falls short of the elite teams, but its average of 35.6 rebounds per game is marginally higher than that of Purdue Fort Wayne. Robert Morris’s defensive average of 74.1 points allowed per game places them 251st in the country. Their field goal protection, which lets opponents shoot at 47.2, is their greatest defensive weakness. Although it’s a little better, three-point defense still requires work. The Colonials’ 5-12 (1-5) record puts them in the 9th spot within the Horizon League rankings, which reflects their difficulties in a cutthroat league.
The Mastodons lost their most recent game, a close contest against Youngstown State, away from home, 93-85. The offensive prowess of Purdue Fort Wayne was evident even in the loss. The team’s strength is the team’s shooting accuracy, which includes a 48.2 percentage on field goals and a strong 37.3 from the line of threes. They average an amazing 84.5 points a game (19th in the US). However, with a 68.6% shooting percentage, they could do better. Given their strong offensive production, the Mastodons’ 32.7 average per contest on the rebound is a segment that requires improvement. Purdue Fort Wayne ranks 142nd nationally in defense, giving up a respectable 69.7 points per contest against opponents. They have a 42.9 defensive percentage for field goals and a 28.1 three-point defense, which is good. With a 13-4 (4-2) record, the Mastodons are ranked 3rd within the Horizon League rankings, demonstrating their strength in a tough conference.
