2012 Northeast Conference Tournament: Robert Morris Down 31-29 To Wagner At The Half

The Robert Morris Colonials' hopes of an NCAA Tournament bid are in jeopardy, as they trail the Wagner Seahawks at the half in the NEC semifinals.

Foul trouble and poor shooting have been the main culprit for the Colonials' troubles. RMU is shooting just 24 percent from the field. Velton Jones leads the Colonials with 10 points, but has three fouls.

Robert Morris still has the win well within reach, as they hold a 25-19 advantage on the glass, and are shooting better from behind the arc and at the foul line than Wagner.

For the Seahawks, Latif Rivers has a game-high 11 points, while shooting a perfect 6-of-6 from the foul line. The Colonials will need to stop him from getting easy points if they want to come out on top. Jonathon Williams has also helped Wagner's cause with 10 points.
