While it's certainly not the marquee postseason college basketball tournament, it's still the postseason and Robert Morris will face Indiana State on Tuesday night in the first round of the 2012 College Insider Tournament. The Colonials are looking to rebound from a Northeast Conference Finals loss to LIU, which earned the automatic berth and will play No. 1 seed Michigan State.
Indiana State finished the season at 18-14, and 8-10 in the two-bid Missouri Valley Conference. The Sycamores did beat Vanderbilt this season, the SEC champs and one of the hottest teams in the country entering the postseason. Indiana State is favored by 4.5 points.
