Every Wednesday, the NBA Draft Blog will feature the "Thorpe Report," a genuine scouting report on a featured game each week from ESPN Insider David Thorpe. This week's game: Kansas-Davidson, which Davidson won 80-74. The Thorpe Report breaks down two Kansas players in ESPN's Top 100 NBA Draft prospects list.
Line score: 21 points (7-for-18 FGM-A), 18 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block
Top 100 draft ranking: 7
Game play: I liked seeing Robinson use his extended left-hand layup after the opening tip, even though he missed the shot. It was the proper play, and it looked like something he should be able to do very well going forward. A big who can use his weak hand as a weapon is far tougher to guard.
I was disappointed, however, to see him jog up and down the floor most of the time, missing opportunities to race the floor for buckets or to prevent them on the other end. It's hard to say a player played lazily when he had 18 rebounds, but it's an accurate way to describe Robinson's efforts on many possessions.
