Sam Robinson
Men's Basketball, inducted in 1994

Jerry Tarkanian's first recruit to Long Beach (Robinson had played for Tarkanian at Pasadena City College), Robinson led the 49ers to a pair of conference titles. He averaged 19.7 points and 10.3 rebounds a game during the 1969-70 season when Long Beach went 24-5 (10-0 in conference) and earned its first invitation to the NCAA tournament. In 1970, Robinson became the first 49er taken in a professional basketball draft, being selected in the first round of the American Basketball Association draft by the Miami Floridians. Robinson played with Miami for two years.
