Robert Morris maintained possession after a held ball, but Velton Jones couldn't connect on a leaner and Coron Williams missed a desperation 3-pointer as he was falling out of bounds had no chance.
Justin Martin scored a career-high 17 points and Dee Davis added 15 for the Musketeers (3-0).
Freshman Semaj Christon finished with 12 points and a team-high six assists in just his second career game and first start.
