From Jamie Vaught of the Wayne County Outlook: “Remember the Colonials from Robert Morris University and their head coach Andrew Toole?
Of course, they are the ones who stunned the basketball world by shocking the mighty Wildcats from Kentucky with a score of 59-57 in last March's NIT opening-round contest held at Moon Township, a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pa.
As you probably know, both schools interestingly will be facing each other again in a mid-November rematch at Rupp Arena.
And, while on a recent major league baseball trip for the three-game series between the Pirates and Giants, we got to visit RMU's 3,056- seat Sewall Center, the site of UK's infamous post-season setback which was televised on ESPN, and I interviewed Toole, a very pleasant coach who will turn 33 on September 11.”
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
