The guard, who left Michigan early after sinking two free throws to send the Wolverines to the 1989 championship borrowed over $700,000 from an Iowa bank for what he claimed to be a business loan. Instead, the former Hawk bought a condo, furniture, cars and invested in an energy company.â†µ
Robinson was also ordered to pay $1.2 million in restitution.â†µ
The 6-foot-2, 195 pound Jamaica native spent six seasons as a pro averaging 7.6 points and 3.5 assists per game. His best season came with the 91-92 Hawks, where the guard posted career-bests 13 points and 5.5 assists per game in 81 contests.
