Thomas Robinson Will Not Travel With Kansas To Colorado After His Mother Dies

Kansas Jayhawks' Thomas Robinson will not make the trip to Colorado to play the Buffaloes KU basketball head coach Bill Self announced on Monday morning. Robinson's mother passed away over the weekend and Self thought he may travel with the team to play the Buffs on Tuesday.

Via Lawrence Journal-World, here's what Self said:

"He wants to go home to be with his sister," Self told the Journal-World Monday morning. "Yesterday he thought it would be best for him to stay and go with us, but he really feels he needs to be with his sister. He'll go back (to Washington, D.C.) today. The bottom line is Thomas needs to do what he needs to do, and we're all here to support him."    

Robinson also lost two grandparents in the last month. 

He played eight minutes and scored two points on Saturday against Texas after hearing the news of his mother.
