2017 Lou Henson Award

April 4, 2017


PHOENIX, AZ -- Monmouth’s Justin Robinson is the recipient of the 2017 Lou Henson award.

Robinson averaged 19.7 points per game and helped lead Monmouth to its second consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Association regular-season championship. 

The MAAC’s scoring leader also won his second straight Conference Player of the Year award and finished his career ranked in the top-five at Monmouth in scoring, assists, steals, three pointers, field goals made, and minutes played. 

The 5-foot-8 senior scored in double-figures in 32 of 34 games this season, which included a career-high 40 points in a win over Siena on Feb. 13. He also had a career-best eight 3-pointers in the game.

“What he may lack in height he made up for with heart and desire,” said CollegeInsider.com’s Angela Lento. “He may play at the mid-major level, but there is nothing mid-major about his game. Justin Robinson is the best player to ever put on a Monmouth uniform.”

Robinson became the first Monmouth player to eclipse the 2,000 point plateau.since the program made the jump to Division I in 1983.

The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the nation's top Division I mid-major player. 

Lou Henson coached 41 years. When he left the game in 2005 he was sixth all-time in career Division I wins with 779. He is the winningest coach at both Illinois and New Mexico State. He is one of only 12 coaches in the history of the game to take two schools to the Final Four.
