Saint Joseph's Ashley Robinson Named Atlantic 10 Women's basketball Co-Rookie of the Week

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Averaging a double-double in her first two collegiate games, Saint Joseph’s redshirt sophomore Ashley Robinson (Warrington, Pa./Archbishop Wood) was named Atlantic 10 Co-Rookie of the Week, conference officials announced on Monday. Robinson, who missed the previous two seasons due to leg injuries, averaged 12 points and 10 rebounds per game as the Hawks went 1-1 in opening weekend play.

 

Making her Saint Joseph’s debut at Princeton on Friday, Robinson was a force off the bench for the Hawks, scoring a team-high 18 points and adding 10 rebounds for her first career double-double. Playing 28 minutes, she hit on 4-of-7 shots from the field and went 10-of-10 from the foul line, while adding three assists, two steals and a blocked shot.

 

In Sunday’s win over Lehigh, Robinson led the Hawks in rebounding for the second-straight game, snagging 10 boards and adding six points and two assists. She finished the week shooting 40 percent from the floor (6-of-15) and 100 percent from the foul line (12-of-12).

 

Robinson and Saint Joseph’s return to action Friday and Saturday at the TD Bank Classic. The Hawks face Dartmouth at 5 p.m. on Friday then host Vermont at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
