Robert Upshaw Career

College career

Upshaw played high school basketball for San Joaquin Memorial High School in Fresno, California, where he grew up for basketball. He originally planned to play college basketball for Kansas State University, but was suspended from his service after the Wildcats head coach Frank Martin left for another position. He then selected Fresno State, where he averaged 4.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game as a freshman in the 2012–2013 season. Upshaw was suspended from the Bulldogs in the summer after his rookie season for breaching team rules.

The 7'0" center was then moved to Washington, Washington, D.C. He appeared in 19 games for the Huskies, averaging 10.9 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 4.5 blocks per game after being suspended from NCAA transfer laws from 2013-2014. Upshaw was suspended from the Washington program again on January 26, 2015, for breaching team rules.
