CORAOPOLIS, Pa. (AP) - Rashad Whack scored 26 points as Mount St. Mary's won its ninth straight game, upending top-seeded Robert Morris 69-60 in the Northeast Conference tournament semifinals Saturday.

The Mountaineers (18-13), who are headed to their first NEC title game since 2009, last won the championship in 2008.

Whack was 7-of-10 shooting, including 4 of 5 from 3-point range. Sam Prescott added 15 points and seven rebounds as the Mountaineers shot 44.7 percent (21 of 47).

The Colonels (23-10) had gone to four straight title games, but their key players struggled Saturday. Velton Jones scored just nine points on 2-of-17 shooting, Coron Williams had just eight points and Russell Johnson and Lucky Jones each fouled out.

Robert Morris trailed 29-23 at halftime and 56-36 after Kevlin Parker's jumper with 4:56 left. A 15-2 run brought the Colonels within 58-51, but they never got closer than six points.

Mount St. Mary's Julian Norfleet suffered an ankle injury in the game. He told reporters after that he was unlikely to return for the championship game.
