Basketball fans nationwide will have an opportunity to witness the remarkable vertical jump of Mount St. Mary’s University senior guard Junior Robinson on Thursday, March 29th at 9 p.m. EST, when ESPN2 airs live the 30th annual State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships at Bill Greehey Arena at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio.
Robinson is one of eight men’s college basketball players selected for the event after being recognized as one of the nation’s most electric athletes.
A four-year starter, Robinson has thrilled Mount fans with a highlight reel that includes scoring 23 points, including the go-ahead basket, with 1:29 remaining, in the Mount’s 67-66 victory over New Orleans in the NCAA First Four in 2017 as well as leading the Mountaineers in the 2017 tournament’s first round when the Mount outplayed No. 1 seeded Villanova in the first half of their matchup. In 2017-18, Robinson posted one of the top seasons in Mount history.
