The Robert Morris men’s basketball team finished 20-14 last season and ranked 203rd in the NCAA Evaluation Tool. That put it above eight Horizon League teams. It won the NEC tournament and would have played in the NCAA tournament for the fourth time since 2009 if it had not been cancelled by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Robert Morris women’s basketball team has played in the NCAA tournament seven times in the last 14 seasons.
Robert Morris is located just northwest of downtown Pittsburgh. The Horizon League now has schools in seven states: Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.
