She leads the Tigers this season in scoring (17.6 ppg) and rebounding (6.9 rpg) and is one of the most efficient scorers in the country..

In Clemson’s win against Wake Forest, Robinson scored 21 points including going 10-12 from the charity stripe.

Robinson currently ranks fourth in Tiger history with 1,733 career points. She needs 63 more to move into third place. Her 887 career rebounds are good enough for fourth-most in Tigers history, and she needs 46 rebounds to surpass Lele Hardy for third-most.
