Moon Township native and Wildcats coach John Calipari returns to his hometown in the match-up at Robert Morris University's Sewall Center.
Returning to his former stomping grounds, University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari spent Tuesday afternoon reminiscing about his time growing up in Moon Township. Calipari, who fondly flashed back to his days in the community in the hours leading up to his team’s the first-round NIT matchup against Robert Morris University, now has new memories about his hometown, only this time, they are bitter-sweet. “I’ve been here a long time and the point I made was if we were going to go on the road and help a program, let’s go help Robert Morris,” said Calipari, a 1978 Moon Area High School graduate. “This is a shot in the arm for them and they deserved to win the game. If we would have won at the buzzer, it would have been a …

Senior Treadwell Lewis has played in only 18 contests in his collegiate career, but when he steps on the court the Sewall Center echos with his name.
For Treadwell Lewis, a senior shooting guard for Robert Morris University, it’s all about passion. “Whatever you have a passion for, whatever you dream about, you just have to really pursue that with everything you have. Don’t let fear hold you back,” Lewis said. “You’re going to have some failures, but you just have to keep going.” Lewis, who is nearing the end of his collegiate career, believes that passion is the driving force behind everything that is accomplished in life, and without devotion toward the game of basketball, he may have never had the opportunity to take the court as a Robert Morris Colonial. Upon graduating from Christian Heritage High School in Trumbull, Connecticut, Lewis initially planned to attend Boston University …
The game marks the 18th win of the Colonials season.
