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).
