(WTNH)–Former UConn star Stanley Robinson is back in Connecticut, playing at the Greater Hartford Pro-Am, which also features current Huskies like Rodney Purvis, Daniel Hamilton and new transfer Terry Larrier. Other Connecticut stars like Ryan Gomes are also balling in Hartford.
“Sticks,” as Robinson is called, has played professionally in the NBA Development League and in Canada. He’s playing in Hartford this summer, trying to get back into shape.
Robinson is coming back from an Achilles’ injury and says this league is one of the best around.
“It’s a pretty good league, you’ve got everyone coming back playing. You’ve got Kemba Walker coming back, Jerome Dyson, A.J. Price…so it’s a good UConn league, and plus you’ve got good NBA players too.”
While Stanley may be a little bit older now (he’s 27), he’s still hustling. He dove for a loose ball in the game we were at.
Good luck to “Sticks” as he works his way back to professional basketball.
