The Robert Morris Colonials men's basketball team is the basketball team that represents Robert Morris University in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, United States. The school's team currently competes in the Northeast Conference. The team's most recent appearance in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament was in 2010, where the 15 seed Colonials nearly upset Villanova in the first round before losing in overtime. After three years in charge and 73 wins, head coach Mike Rice Jr. left the program to take the head coaching job at Rutgers. After a short search, Robert Morris hired Rice's associate head coach, Andrew Toole, as the program's head coach.
