WSSU freshman Colon making immediate

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- It’s hard to imagine just how good freshman Robert Colon of Winston-Salem State will get once he gets a little more experience.

The good news is he’s already making quite an impact.

Colon, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound shooting guard, has made the transition from high school to college look as easy as the perfect rotation on his jump shot. He’s confident without being cocky, and that’s a trait that has already endeared him to teammates.

“He hasn’t had a bad game,” coach James Wilhelmi of the Rams said. “As a freshman, you are going to have ups and downs. We believe in him and we’re going to keep going to him because he’s an outstanding player.”

The Rams (3-4) will head into today’s 7 p.m. game at home against Virginia Union with Colon as their leading scorer. He is averaging 19.7 points a game and loves taking the big shots.
