Nina Robinson Named NJCAA Women’s Basketball DIII POTW

BROCKTON, Mass. ---- It's been a big week for the Massasoit women's basketball team and the accolades keep pouring in as sophomore forward Nina Robinson (Virginia Beach, Va./Green Run HS) was named the most recent NJCAA Division III Player of the Week (Dec. 3-9) on Wednesday.

Robinson posted a pair of double-doubles in leading Massasoit to a pair of road victories last week. The sophomore was a presence in the post as the Warriors are a perfect 10-0 on the season and moved up from No. 4 to No. 1 in the most recent national poll.   

Robinson started the week with a 22-point, 14-rebound effort on the road at then No. 7 UConn-Avery Point. She followed that outing up with a career-high 30 points and 15 boards in a victory at Quinsigamond.

The sophomore shot 63.1 percent from the floor, making 24 of 38 shots and averaged 26 points, 14.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.5 steals for the week.

Robinson becomes the second Massasoit women's basketball student-athlete to garner the weekly award this season, joining teammate Ky'Jae Hargrove (Nov. 5-11).

Massasoit hosts Gateway CC on Thursday at 5:30 PM.
