With all due respect to Western Kentucky, Chalmette center Mitchell Robinson may have slipped through the cracks when it comes to major college basketball powers.

The seven-foot Robinson ended his prep career Friday night in Brooklyn, scoring 15 points, including 13 in the first half, and pulling down three rebounds for the East squad in 124-116 loss in the Jordan Brand Classic at the Barclays Center in a game seen nationally on ESPN2.

Robinson, who led the Owls to the Class 5A semifinals this past season, previously played in the McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago in March, where he scored 14 points and grabbed three rebounds in a similar stat line.

Robinson had offers from LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M, DePaul, U-Mass and Murray State.
