Justin Robinson has signed a two-year contract extension at London Lions.
The Brixton man was leading the club to defending their British Basketball League championship and scooping an unprecedented three MVP awards in a row when the Covid-19 outbreak cut the campaign short.
Robinson said: “I feel really excited to be back at the Lions for my fourth year.
“This year is even more exciting with the team playing in Europe. With the team assembled, we have a great chance of making noise. I’m thankful for the opportunity to be home with the Lions once again.”
The former Brixton Topcat – a prodigy of the late Jimmy Rogers – had averaged just short of 17 points and five assists per game. Lions coach Vince Macaulay said: “I can only really speak of his commitment to the game in this country, his desire for young Brits to see an opportunity at home and then his ability to be successful, whilst doing the right things.”
