In this virtual win, North Carolina Central will improve to 19-13 with this simulated win. They are now on a seven-game win streak with this virtual win.

The virtual loss dropped the Colonials to 20-15 on the season. Robert Morris had their four-game win streak snapped with this virtual loss.

North Carolina Central had their lowest output since the March 2nd game against the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats. The Eagles won 71-68 in overtime.

This was Robert Morris’ lowest scoring game since March 4th. In a win, they defeated St. Francis Brooklyn Terriers, 59-58 in the Northeast Conference Tournament game.

Jibri Blount led the Eagles with 19 points in the virtual contest. He also had 10 rebounds.

With this virtual 19 points, It would be the third-time in the last four games that Blount had 19 points. He also scored 19 points in real games against the Wildcats on March 2nd and North Carolina A&T Aggies on March 5th.

Blount was one of four North Carolina Central players, who scored in double-digits. Nicolas Fennell had 15, Deven Palmer added 13, and Randy Miller Jr. Contributed 12 points.

Dante Treacy led the Colonials with 15 points. He also had two rebounds, two assists, and one steal.

This virtual game would have exceed Treacy’s real-life scoring, as he averaged 8.7 points per game during the season. However, in his last real-life game against the Saint Francis (Pa.) Red Flash, Treacy scored a team-high 18 points in a 77-67 win on March 10th.

Three Robert Morris players had double-figures. Besides Treacy in this virtual contest, A.J. Bramah contributed 14 and Charles Bain scored 10.
