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.
