URI’s Robinson suspended indefinitely
Kingston, RI (Sports Network) – Guard Dawan Robinson has been suspended
indefinitely from non-academic and non-medical team activities by the
University of Rhode Island athletic department.
The suspension, which reportedly stems from a fight and subsequent arrest
outside of a bar near the campus, has a minimum term of 60 days and will be
lifted on November 24 at the earliest.
“Robinson has agreed to accept the consequences of his actions as they relate
to Department and team expectations of University of Rhode Island student-
athletes,” read a statement released from the university.
The 6-foot-2 Philadelphia native was one of the top weapons for the Rams over
his first couple of seasons and was a preseason first-team All-Atlantic 10
choice heading into the 2004-05 campaign. He suffered a stress fracture of his
foot in October, however, and missed the team’s first eight games. The senior
returned on December 27 against Iona, but lasted just one minute before re-
injuring the foot and sitting out the remainder of the season. He red-shirted
and was allowed to return for the -05-06 season.
Robinson made the Las Vegas All-Tournament team in his junior season after
scoring 26 points versus Lubbock Christian and 16 points versus Louisiana-
Monroe, and guided the Rams into the NIT Tournament.
The current suspension went into effect on September 24, according to the
