    Aurora hoops season extended with premier A-Town All-Stars game March 26

    JERVAE ROBINSON

    School: Overland

    Year: Senior

    Height: 6-foot-2

    2015-16 averages: 13.1 points, 3.1 assists, 1.3 steals

     

    Season highlights: Another year, another Class 5A state championship for Overland’s supremely talented group, which featured eight seniors determined to finished with back-to-back state titles and made it happen despite some challenges along the way. Coach Danny Fisher’s Trailblazers turned heads in Las Vegas when it won the Platinum Division of the Tarkanian Classic and posted an overall record of 5-0 against teams outside of the state of Colorado. The senior core included De’Ron Davis — a 6-foot-10 Indiana University signee — Alijah Halliburton and Reggie Gibson, all holdovers from last season’s state championship winner, along with Jervae Robinson, who returned to the program where he played his first two seasons before moving away as a junior. Robinson dazzled in Las Vegas — and scored a season-high 22 points against Long Beach Poly in a 62-43 win Dec. 16 — and won the tournament MVP award, displaying an innate ability to get to the basket and also shoot reliably from the outside. He scored 18 points in the Trailblazers’ state championship game victory. Robinson will play on Team West in the A-Town All-Stars Game.

    Robinson vs. Aurora teams: Regis Jesuit (21 points & 7 rebounds), Eaglecrest (15 points, 15 points & 6 rebounds & 5 assists, 18 points & 5 rebounds), Smoky Hill (11 points, 6 points), Cherokee Trail (5 points, 15 points & 6 rebounds), Grandview (4 points, 12 points)
