UH assist master Galen Robinson Jr. beefs up his scoring

While his 43.5-percent shooting this season is slightly below last year’s pace, Robinson has nearly doubled his scoring output at 8.5 points, and his 17 3-pointers are one shy of his career high.

The biggest difference has been how opposing teams defend Robinson, whose reputation has been rooted in his ability to pass the ball. The 6-1 Westbury Christian product matched his career high with 20 points against Lamar and had 18 points in a big win over LSU.
