Editor's Note: Insider has teamed with Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, long known as the Bible of college basketball, to provide a comprehensive look at all 326 Division I teams.


Robert Morris received a boost before it even took the court this season with the return of star senior Chaz McCrommon.

The 6-6 fifth-year senior forward, who was a first-team All-NEC selection last year, earned his final year of eligibility back by graduating in four years.

That means the Colonials will have their three top players returning in McCrommon, 6-0 senior guard Maurice Carter and 5-11 sophomore point guard Derek Coleman to build on from last season's 14-win season.
