Professional career[edit]

WNBA[edit]

Robinson was selected the first round of the 2011 WNBA Draft (6th overall) by the San Antonio Silver Stars.[2]

Robinson quickly established herself as perhaps the quickest athlete in the WNBA.[3] 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.[4]

Europe[edit]

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.[5] 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.[6]
