Robinson Next UConn Player Out?
The seemingly annual upheaval of the Connecticut roster might not be over just yet. According to head coach Jim Calhoun, there is a chance sophomore forward Stanley Robinson will not be part of the Huskies' team next season. "He's got some things that he's got to prove to us much the same as, quite frankly, Curtis [Kelly] and Doug [Wiggins]," Calhoun told The Connecticut Day. "Right now Stanley is in the process of [determining] if he wants to be part of the program. It's the same package as the other kids with a combination of academics and social, and being on time and being dedicated to the program." Kelly and Wiggins both transferred earlier this offseason. Calhoun did not say that Robinson was going to be kicked off the team, but did say he needed to prove himself to the coaches. "He has time to show us that he wants to do the things that we asked him to do," he said. "There is an opportunity. He certainly could have a UConn uniform on again." The 6-9 Robinson averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game last season.
