Report: Glenn Robinson III to enter the NBA Draft


Michigan’s sophomore forward Glenn Robinson III will enter the NBA Draft, according to a report from Jake Fischer of the Boston Globe.

The Michigan coaching staff has yet to be informed of Robinson’s decision, but Robinson has been expected to leave for the professional ranks. He’s projected as an early-second round pick, according to Draft Express, but some expect Robinson to sneak his way into the first round.

Robinson averaged 13.1 points as a sophomore.

Robinson isn’t the only Wolverine currently deciding on where he will play basketball in the near future. Nik Stauskas has reportedly made the decision to enter the NBA Draft, although he refuted the report last week. Center Mitch McGary is also considering turning professional, although he spent the last four month of the season on the bench after back surgery.

UConn commit tears ACL for second time

Leave a comment

UConn commit Juwan Durham, a four-star big man in the Class of 2016, has torn the ACL in his right knee for the second time in seven months. The Florida native committed to the Huskies and head coach Kevin Ollie back in September. The 6-foot-9 forward is regarded as the No. 31 overall prospect in the national Class of 2016, so he can really be a force when he’s healthy.

In a report from Tampabay.com’s Bob Putnam, UConn was notified of the injury immediately and there is no change in plans with the commitment. The Huskies also own commitments from four-star point guard Alterique Gilbert and three-star power forward Mamadou Diarra in the Class of 2016. Having Diarra, an active, rim-protecting presence, helps with Durham’s recovery, since he can provide some more front court depth.

If Durham rehabs back to full speed, UConn has a very talented power forward who was just hitting his stride in the Florida state playoffs last February. UConn has a nice class so far with this group, especially if Durham can recover, With a year to recover until next season, Durham can hopefully play during his freshman season in 2016.

VIDEO: Arizona State’s Torian Graham dunks over teammate

1 Comment

Arizona State fans won’t get a chance to see Torian Graham take the floor this season, but he did sky over fellow teammates (and transfer) Shannon Evans on Friday night at the team’s Maroon and Gold Madness. The 6-foot-4 Graham is a former Buffalo commit — Evans also came from Buffalo — and both players will have to sit out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer regulations.

Graham hasn’t had a chance to get into a Division I game, but he’ll be able to play for the Sun Devils next season. For now, fans can look forward to Graham’s athleticism on the wing in pregame dunk routines.

A former top-100 prospect, Graham also pulled off this ridiculous move in the dunk contest.
