The NBA Draft is still more than two months away, but the dominoes are already falling into place. With an incredible high school class set to take over college basketball next season, most prospects want a taste of the money, leaving now while the food is still warm. Read More »
TAG: Glenn Robinson III
About an hour from now there will reportedly be an official announcement via Michigan that Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III will be returning to school next year instead of entering the NBA Draft.
Nobody’s stock rose faster during the NCAA Tournament than did McGary’s – to the point where we were asking big questions about how high he could go in the draft. Glenn was also projected to be a first round pick, making these two and this monster the latest to buck conventional wisdom and turn down guaranteed NBA money. Read More »

Are you old enough to remember Glenn Robinson when he played at Purdue in the early 1990s? He was absolutely terrifying on offense. Buckets, buckets and more buckets. And he didn’t look like it, but he was explosive.
After watching yet another monster dunk by his kid last night on national TV, I found myself watching Big Dog Youtube highlights today and found this gem. Watch Glenn hit 7-0 Greg Ostertag with a jump-stop from the post and then massive dunk right in his face. Then Ostertag walks up and shakes his hand! Read More »
They were down to Purdue at home to start the second half of tonight’s nationally-televised game, but No. 2 Michigan eventually exerted their will and took care of business. A major part of the Wolverines’ success tonight (and all season long) was Glenn Robinson III, whose aerial show has become a regular source of highlights this year.
Watch this monstrous dunk that Bigg Dogg Jr. had in the first half against his dad’s alma mater: Read More »
Midnight Madness is over, and with it went the smoke machines, dunk contests and laser shows that kick off the season.

That’s why Dime has you covered with individual previews of the nation’s top 15 teams and a few others just outside, all over the course of the next few weeks. Today, Michigan. Read More »
John Beilein seems to have a plan in place at Michigan. With thousands of kids looking for college scholarships, how does he know who has the potential to make it to the NBA? Well, he’s hoping the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Already with the son of six-time NBA All-Star Joe Dumars (sophomore Jordan Dumars), the son of five-time NBA All-Star Tim Hardaway (freshman Tim Hardaway, Jr.) and the brother of NBA All-Star Al Horford (freshman Jon Horford), Beilein has added another prodigal child to the roster: Glenn Robinson III.

A couple nights ago, I was browsing the Big Ten Network OnDemand and settled on a Purdue/Indiana game from 1993. Bobby Knight, Gene Keady when he still kinda had hair, the immortal Damon Bailey, Alan Henderson, Cuonzo Martin … and Glenn Robinson.
If you don’t remember Robinson, a.k.a. “Big Dog” in his prime, he was a BEAST. He dropped 30.3 points and 10.1 rebounds per game as a junior at Purdue, swept all the national Player of the Year awards, and was picked No. 1 overall in that year’s NBA Draft. His push for a $100 million rookie contract from the Bucks (he ended up getting like $65M if I recall) actually set the wheels in motion for the current NBA rookie salary cap. Read More »
