Bryn Forbes led six Cleveland State players in double figures with 18 points as the Vikings defeated Robert Morris, 87-74, Saturday at Wolstein Center in Cleveland.

The Vikings (3-2), leading, 33-29, at half, built their lead to 18 by outscoring the Colonials (3-3), 20-6, over the first six minutes of the second half. That would be enough cushion to absorb a rally that would get the Colonials within five points with eight minutes left, but no closer.

Jeremiah Worthem scored 16 points, Karvel Anderson 14 and Lucky Jones 13 for Robert Morris.
