Robert Morris still can't beat Pittsburgh.
The Colonials fell to 0-30 all-time against their crosstown foes with an 81-71 loss on Sunday night, as the Northeast Conference power struggled to find any rhythm against the bigger, deeper Panthers.
Pitt held Robert Morris star Velton Jones to 10 points on 1-of-14 shooting and the Colonials never threatened after falling behind by double digits midway through the first half.
''''We need to play a full 40 minutes of good basketball and not just 20 minutes,'' Jones said.
Robert Morris (4-2) had trouble on the glass against Pitt forwards Khem Birch and Talib Zanna, who combined for 25 rebounds in addition to Birch's six blocks.
''Zanna was playing volleyball by himself up there a couple of times,'' Robert Morris coach Andy Toole said. ''I thought too many times tonight as I watched I saw our guys watching and unfortunately they're participating in the game and I'm just a spectator on the sideline.''
