January 30, 1994|By From Staff Reports

CORAOPOLIS, Pa. -- Junior guard Sefton Robinson celebrated his first career start with a career-high 20 points, and held Robert Morris' leading scorer, Myron Walker, to nine points to spark Mount St. Mary's to a 70-69 win over the Colonials in a Northeast Conference game last night.

The Mount (10-8, 7-4) won its fourth in a row and seventh out of eight, knocking Robert Morris (10-9, 8-3) out of first place in the league standings.

Robinson's 20 points matched his total of all last season. He has scored 34 points in the past two games.

Robinson also added a game-high eight rebounds and commited just one turnover in 28 minutes.

The Colonials shot 55 percent, including 7-for-12 on three-pointers, to take a 44-36 lead at halftime.

Bubba Donnelly came off the bench to hit all four of his shots to lead the early run.

Mount St. Mary's, meanwhile, was sparked by senior reserve Doug John, who came off the bench for 12 points, one shy of his career high, in 14 minutes.

The Mountaineers made several defensive adjustments at the half and closed down the Colonials' outside attack, while Robinson was keeping Walker, who entered the game averaging 19.8 points, at bay.
