Chris Shovlin Talks About Robert Morris Moving To The Horizon League

Chris Shovlin has been calling men’s basketball games at Robert Morris University since 1987, a 34-season run that saw RMU play every year in the Northeaster Conference (formerly the ECAC Metro).

In 2020-21, Shovlin will be traveling to new places and new colleges, as he’ll be calling games in the Horizon League…with the Colonials, of course.

The announcement that Robert Morris would head to the Horizon League was the topic of conversation on Wednesday morning as the “Voice Of The Colonials” joined Matt Drzik on A.M. Beaver County to talk about the move, explaining how the basketball team was a main caveat in seeing Robert Morris moving up to the next level.

Shovlin, who himself worked at Beaver County Radio from 1976-1992, also talked about the cloudy nature of the NCAA’s future with the pandemic still an issue, and the overall jump of RMU’s progress over the last few years.
