Trenton native Jeff Robinson to enter NBA draft
Jeff Robinbson Sr. said his son, a former standout at St. Patrick High School, is entering the draft with one season of eligibility remaining at Seton Hall. The Pirates are likely to undergo significant roster changes in the wake of coach Bobby Gonzalez's firing.
Robinson averaged 12.2 points and 5.8 rebounds for the Pirates, who lost to Texas Tech in the first round of the NIT. Prior to arriving at Seton Hall, Robinson played two seasons at Memphis. He transferred mid-way through the 2008-09 season after averaging 1.8 points in 9.4 minutes.
Seton Hall fired Gonzalez March 17 after four seaons and is conducting a search for his replacement. Gonzalez's tenure was marred by off-court distractions. Two former players -- Robert Mitchell and Kelly Whitney -- were charged with several crimes involving an armed robbery in Newark.
