PITTSBURGH (AP) - Tyler Kohl had his eighth double-double of the season and Mustafa Jones scored 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting to help Central Connecticut State beat Robert Morris 65-58 on Saturday night to snap a six-game skid.

Kohl scored 11 of his 17 points in the final nine minutes and finished with 10 rebounds and seven assists. Deion Bute added 12 points for CCSU (13-16, 6-10 Northeast Conference).
