The family Roberson has always been about competition. John Roberson played basketball collegiately at New Mexico State (1985-89) and professionally overseas for 12 years. Lisa Roberson played volleyball at New Mexico State (1985-89). Their daughters have all excelled as college athletes (Arielle at Colorado; Ashlee at Texas Tech and Amber at Texas).
However, the son and brother of the family, Andre, is making the big splash. At Colorado, he is an explosive athlete that is able to make a big impact on the game without having to score. Roberson has great length and leaping ability, and he doesn’t put either to waste. Blessed with an athletic frame that looks like it should hold a good amount of muscle. Roberson, a junior next season in Boulder, has a super-high motor and is an excellent overall defender. With added weight, he should be the kind of player that can defend three or four different positions due to his intensity and lateral quickness.
