USA Basketball[edit]

Robinson was named a member of the team representing the USA at the 2009 World University Games held in Belgrade, Serbia. The team won all seven games to earn the gold medal. Robinson averaged 4.6 points per game.[2]

Professional career[edit]


Robinson was selected the first round of the 2011 WNBA Draft (6th overall) by the San Antonio Silver Stars.[3]

Robinson quickly established herself as perhaps the quickest athlete in the WNBA.[4] Robinson made the Western Conference All-Star Team in her third season in the league, and led the league in assists per game, earning the WNBA Peak Performer award for assists.[5]

In 2015, Robinson re-signed with San Antonio in free agency.[6]

In 2017, Robinson was traded to the Phoenix Mercury in exchange for Isabelle Harrison and a 2017 first round pick.[7]


Robinson began her European career with Tarsus Belediye in Mersin, Turkey. She played for the team during the 2012–13 season in both the Turkish Women's Basketball League and the EuroLeague Women. The following year, she joined ZVVZ USK Prague. She came to the team late in the 2013-14 season, but helped them to the Final Eight in that year's EuroLeague Women.[8] She returned to ZVVZ USK Prague for the 2014-15 season. She helped take the team to its first EuroLeague title, scoring 24 points on 11-of-19 shooting in the Final against the heavily-favored UMMC Ekaterinburg.[9]
