Robinson Brings Basketball Acumen to Spain

LANCASTER, Pa. –  Franklin & Marshall's Glenn Robinson returned from a 10-day trip throughout Spain in June that saw the Diplomats' 46-year head coach join the Beyond Basketball Spain staff to lead a group of current student-athletes in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The trip covered Madrid, Toledo, Valencia, Barcelona, and various neighboring towns as Robinson's team battled their way to a 3-1 record against professional and all-star squads from Spain. His team's lone loss came in an overtime tilt against a team from Valencia. 

Student-athletes and coaches also provided basketball clinics to local youths and explored the many downtowns, historical districts, cultural sites, and picturesque beaches of the cities they traveled through.

Beyond Sports provides international experiences for thousands of basketball, soccer, softball, and volleyball collegiate student-athletes through organized team trips to such countries as Costa Rica, Spain, and South Africa.
