ESPN Player Evaluations

Blue Chip Fall 2010: When Robinson steps on the court, there is no mistaking that the kid wants to win. To say the 5-8 point guard from Springfield, Va., is active and engaged would be an understatement. She is involved in every play at both ends of the court, frantically chasing down loose balls, fighting with bigs for rebounds, and deflecting any pass that remotely comes her way. In addition to her impressive energy, Robinson demonstrated notable ability to put up points. While not overly explosive, she is quick enough to shake her defender off the first bounce. Time and time again she lost her defender and challenged the bigs with a quick and direct attack dribble. She was very successful with an up and under move that either drew weak side help for a quick dump pass, or a strong finish at the rim. When the ball is in her hands, Robinson can be counted on to make things happen. (Howe)

Winter 2010-11: Continues to improve all aspects of her game. Her leadership skills has a point guard are excellent. (Bodine)

Blue Chip-July 10: One of the more deceiving players on hand, this combo guard from Springfield, Va., can be a lethal scoring threat. Her range is deep and forces defenses to extend or pay a dear price. She can also put it on the floor and create her own opportunity including a deadly pull up. Helping her offensively is her ability to read defenders. With or without the ball she has a good sense for getting open or delivering the ball for the best looks. When pressured she did tire a little too easily and it took away from her effectiveness but the weapons are there. Her ability to make plays is obvious but what level might still be a question mark.
