    “He was just a really, really sweet kid,” said Jim Calhoun, who recruited Robinson and coached him at UConn. “The world was harsh for him, because they weren’t all like Stanley Robinson. He was such a caring, giving person.”

    Robinson was found dead in his home by his mother, Calhoun said. The cause of death has yet to be determined. His alma mater, Huffman High, announced his passing via Twitter.

    “I spoke with him on Monday,” Calhoun said, “I don’t think there’s been a three or four week period where I haven’t talked to him since he left UConn. At St. Joe’s, the kids are always asking, ‘how’s Sticks?’ ... Despite all the tough breaks, he always had a smile on his face.”
