This week it was reported that former University of Connecticut basketball star Stanley Robinson had been found dead inside his family’s home in Alabama.

Shortly after the news broke, Cleveland Cavaliers star big man Andre Drummond took to social media to express his sadness over the loss.

Like Robinson, Drummond played his college basketball at UConn.

Robinson played at UConn from 2006 to 2010. He helped the Huskies reach the NCAA Tournament Final Four in 2009, and he was the 59th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

While he didn’t manage to make much of a name for himself in the NBA, he enjoyed success playing internationally in Canada, Chile and Iceland.

UConn has mourned the loss across all of its social media pages after the news of Robinson’s death broke, including a heart-wrenching post on Twitter.

While it is highly unlikely that Drummond will make the trip to any memorial service held in Robinson’s honor due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he surely seems dedicated to keeping his memory alive.
