 MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) - Rashad Whack scored 20 points and four of his teammates finished in double figures and Mount St. Mary's clinched an NCAA tournament berth with an 88-71 victory against Robert Morris in the Northeast Conference title game Tuesday night.
The fourth-seeded Mountaineers (16-16) built a 20-point first-half lead and never looked back, shooting 60.4 percent from the field to win their fourth conference title in school history and first since 2008.
Julian Norfleet scored 17; Taylor Danaher and Sam Prescott scored 15, and Will Miller added 11 for the Mountaineers, whose four NEC championship game victories all came on the road.
