Stanley “Sticks” Robinson, a former UConn basketball star, has passed away at age 32. News of Robinson’s death began circulating on social media on Wednesday, July 23, with the university later confirming his death.
No cause of death for Robinson’s passing has been announced at this time.
“The UConn Basketball family grieves the loss of a great player and an even greater person, Stanley ‘Sticks’ Robinson,” the university wrote on social media. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Stanley’s family at this difficult time. Rest In Peace, Sticks.”
During his time at the University of Connecticut, Robinson averaged 9.8 points per game on 48.5 percent shooting. He added 6.2 rebounds per game and helped the Huskies reach the Final Four in his junior season before the Huskies won the national championship the year following his graduation.
