Rumeal Robinson Resurfaces and is Convicted of Fraud

Rumeal Robinson/Courtesy:
Those who followed NCAA basketball back in the late 80's and early 90's, probably remember the name Rumeal Robinson.

Robinson was the point guard on the Michigan "Fab 5" team in 1989. Robinson was at first round draft pick of the Atlanta Hawks the next year. Robinson is now heading to jail in central Iowa. The reason: he was found guilty on 11 counts in an Iowa federal court today.

The case itself dates back several years and is sad ending to Robinson's civilian life. No, he wasn't particularly successful in the NBA. While he was good at handling the ball and passing, he couldn't shoot very well (being polite) and his NBA career didn't last very long.

 For those wondering just who Rumeal Robinson is, here is a video from the 1989 Final Four. Thanks YouTube:
