Some Local College Hoops Stories You May Not Know About
One is T.J. Robinson, the West Haven resident and Bridgeport native who just completed a terrific, four-year career at Long Beach State. You may know the 49ers simply as that team that plays a ridiculously tough schedule and beat Pitt at Pitt this year, but give Robinson's story a read. His mother passed away of ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) four years ago, just before he was set to head out to Long Beach to begin summer courses for his freshman year.

Both schools tried, but could never find a matching date).
