The Niagara River Lions announced today the re-signing of 6’3 guard, Kassius Robertson for the 2021 Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) season. Robertson is currently playing for Rio Natura Monbus Obradoiro in the Liga Endesa in Spain.
The Toronto native has been part of the River Lions since the inaugural CEBL season in 2019, but only had a brief stint of seven games with the team before being invited to play for the Charlotte Hornets in the NBA Summer League. During the 2020 CEBL Summer Series, while suited up for a second season with the River Lions, Robertson averaged 14.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.
With Monbus Obradoiro, Robertson is currently averaging 14.4 points and 2.5 assists per game. He was named Canada Basketball’s Player of the week this past October, as well as voted Player of the Month (MVP) of the team for the month of December after scoring 37 points in one game and setting a new club record in points scored.
