Yates said Birmingham police are investigating the death but that no evidence had been found of foul play or trauma. He said official cause of death was pending results of toxicology analysis and other tests.
“I am truly heartbroken,” said Hall of Famer Jim Calhoun, Robinson’s coach at UConn. “Stanley was such a beautiful person, caring and giving. He was a gentle soul, too gentle for this world.
“He was not only loved by his teammates, but everybody who met Sticks liked him. He will always be a Husky.”
Robinson was drafted by the Orlando Magic in the second round of the 2010 NBA Draft but was waived on the last day of training camp. He played professionally internationally in places such as Canada, Iceland and Chile.
