Career highlights and awards

Justin DeVaughn Robinson (born April 12, 1995)[1] is an American basketball player for Élan Chalon of the LNB Pro A. He played college basketball for the Monmouth Hawks.

College career[edit]

Robinson did not receive many scholarship offers out of high school due to his small stature.[2] He scored 22 points in a 70-68 win over Notre Dame on November 26, 2015, the program's first victory over a ranked opponent.[3] As a junior, Robinson averaged 20.2 points, 3.7 assists, and 2.1 steals per game. He led Monmouth to its first ever MAAC regular season title and a school record 25 victories. As a result, he was named first-team All-MAAC for the second straight year as well as MAAC Player of the Year. On three occasions Robinson was named MAAC Player of the week. Robinson also played football for Kingston High school where he played defensive back.[4]

Robinson was again named MAAC Player of the Year in his senior season after averaging 19.7 points per game and leading Monmouth to the regular-season MAAC championship. He scored his 2,000th career point in his final college game, a first round National Invitation Tournament loss to Ole Miss.[5]

Professional career[edit]

In the summer of 2017, Robinson signed with the Miami Heat for the NBA Summer League. He ultimately signed with the Russian club Avtodor Saratov on August 2, 2017.[6] On July 5, 2018, Robinson signed with the French team Élan Chalon.[7]
