Sophomore guard James Robinson looking to lead Panthers as season begins
PITTSBURGH – Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon says he's ready for sophomore point guard James Robinson to take the next step.
Robinson started 32 of 33 games last season, a rarity for a freshman with the Panthers. While Robinson did an excellent job running the offense, Dixon says he would like to see Robinson look to score more this winter.
Robinson averaged 6.1 points a year ago and shot just 38 percent from the field. He spent most of the offseason working on his jumper in hopes of becoming a bigger threat offensively.
Robinson and the Panthers open the season on Friday night against Savannah State.
