CLEVELAND – Bryn Forbes led six Cleveland State players in double figures with 18 points as the Vikings defeated Robert Morris 87-74 on Saturday.
The Vikings (3-2), leading 33-29 at the half, built their lead to 18 points by outscoring the Colonials (3-3) 20-6 over the first 6 minutes of the second half. That would be enough cushion to absorb a rally that would get the Colonials within five points with 8 minutes left, but no closer.
Joining Forbes in double figures were Charlie Lee with 17 points, Anton Grady and Trey Lewis with 13 apiece, Jon Harris with 11 and Sebastian Douglas with 10.
The Vikings finished 23 of 45 from the field for 51.1 percent, including 7 of 17 from the 3-point arc, 41.2 percent.
Jeremiah Worthem scored 16 points, Karvel Anderson 14 and Lucky Jones 13 for Robert Morris.
