Notebook: Las Lomas basketball star makes college decision

Las Lomas’ Nathan Robinson (24) celebrates after defeating Palo Alto during their CIF Northern California Division I boys final at Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, Calif. on Saturday, March 17, 2018. Las Lomas defeated Palo Alto 44-41. (Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group)

WALNUT CREEK — Nathan Robinson helped lead Las Lomas to unprecedented heights this past season as the Knights won the Northern California Division I regional championship to reach a state final.

Now the 6-foot-4 guard will continue his career at the University of South Dakota, having accepted a scholarship offer to play for a program that won 22 games two seasons ago and 26 last season.

“Well-deserved,” said Brian Dietschy, who stepped down as Las Lomas’ coach this month.

Robinson averaged 21 points, five rebounds and four assists per game, earning MVP honors in the Diablo Athletic League’s Foothill Division and first-team All-Bay Area News Group recognition.

“We are all excited,” said Robinson’s father, Mark.

11 Annual City All Game on April 5th - Rosters Announced

IMG_5910.JPG

Coaches, ADs and City All Stars,

 

We will again be hosting the City All Star Game in Memory of Coach Mike Gragnani.  The game will be Thursday April 5th at CCSF.   We will have a Girls' game at 6:00 and the Boys' Game at 7:30.  We will also have a 3-point shooting Contest and a Slam Dunk Contest.  Per CIF rules the game is limited to Seniors only.   We will provide the players with a t-shirt uniform that they keep and there will be trophies for the contest winners and the game MVP's.   The players participate for free but we do charge $5 for admission  for fans which covers the cost of the uniforms, trophies, referees and facility.  We typically break-even or lose a little money but if there is a profit it goes to our Bay Area Warriors non-profit.  We typically draw a good crowd and the Seniors have a lot of fun  (you can see some photos on our website).   It is a great way for us to bring the San Francisco basketball community together and for the Seniors to play a final fun game to end their high school careers.

 

I have compiled the roster of invitees below primarily by looking at the All-League Teams from the BCL, AAA and WCAL.  If you have other players who are deserving, please nominate them to me and we will try to include them.  In particular we typically need extra girl players.  We tend to be short girls players so any girls coaches who are willing to help me in the invitation process I would greatly appreciate it.  Also note we are likely going to invite some Girls players from the PAL to make sure we have a good showing.  Armando Pazos from Golden City will again be helping organize the Girls Game.

 

I need you to get me the contact info (cell phone (preferred) or e-mail address) for any of your players who are invited.  Please do this as soon as possible so I can give them as much notice as possible.

 

Thanks for your help!
