RICHMOND, Va. – Following a week in which she led VCU to a pair of conference wins, VCU freshman Keira Robinson (Columbia, S.C.) has been named the Atlantic 10 Conference's Co-Rookie of the Week, along with Saint Louis' Erin Nelson. It is the fourth time this season Robinson has earned a Rookie of the Week honor.
It was a week not unlike much of Robinson's debut season, which has seen her set a VCU single-season record for assists by a freshman, while directing the A-10's second-highest-scoring offense. Robinson's 179 assists this season rank third in school single-season history.
For the year, the Columbia, S.C. native is averaging 11.7 points, 6.4 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game.
Robinson and VCU continue their breakout 2013-14 campaigns on Wednesday, Feb. 26 when they head across town to face Richmond at the Robins Center. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
