Gary Wallace's runner with 14:30 left marked the Colonials' first field goal since Rob Robinson tied the score at 30-30 with 4:44 left in the first half. The lull lasted 10:14 -- an eternity in the NCAA tournament -- and Michigan State is comfortably ahead.
What's more amazing is that just 22 seconds after Wallace's basket, Ifeanyi Ehirim scored and drew a foul. About a minute later, Wallace swished a jumper. So all it took was one basket.
It's too late for the Colonials, especially with Michigan State's Raymar Morgan finally starting to surge. But Robert Morris band members are still holding "We Believe" signs when the Colonials shoot free throws.
