If Thomas Robinson had been leaning toward returning to the University of Kansas for a fourth season, head basketball coach Bill Self says he would have discouraged it. Robinson announced today (MON) that he will skip his senior year with the Jayhawks to enter his name into the NBA draft. The only thing Robinson felt he missed in his three years at KU was being part of a national championship team:
Robinson scored 18 points and pulled down 17 rebounds in the national championship game against the University of Kentucky Wildcats in New Orleans last Monday night. The Wildcats defeated the Jayhawks by a score of 67-59 to win the national title.
