Robin Freeman graduated from Cincinnati Hughes High School. Hours and hours of practice leading up to his senior season in 1952 helped him set the state’s scoring record when he averaged 39.5 points a game. And don’t forget, that was 30 years before the three-point line! He was known for pioneering the jump shot at a time when the flat-footed set shot was the norm.
Robin then attended Ohio State, where he became the Buckeyes’ first two-time All-American. He averaged 31.5 points per game as a junior and 32.9 as a senior, and his 28 points per game average for his career is still an OSU record.
Drafted by the NBA’s St. Louis Hawks in 1956, Robin never played pro ball, instead entering law school. He went on to a successful career as a trial lawyer in Springfield. Freeman passed away on September 23, 2014 at the age of 80.
