AS A JUNIOR (2012-13)
Dominique Robinson was a big part of the Razorbacks' defensive success in 2011-12 and returned to that level of play again in 2012-13. Her season was cut short when a recurring injury sidelined Robinson after 17 games in 2012-13. Robinson posted a season-best 15 points in 20 minutes of play against Northwestern State and averged 3.4 ppg for the season. She was 5-for-5 against Northwestern State and scored in double figures twice with 15 points against Northwestern State and 11 points against Coppin State.
AS A REDSHIRT SOPHOMORE (2011-12)
Robinson returned to the Razorback lineup and immediately earned a starting spot as a redshirt sophomore. The Baton Rouge, La., native was one of the toughest defensive players in the SEC in 2011-12 helping Arkansas rank eighth in the nation in scoring defense. Robinson often teamed with Keira Peak working against the opponents’ point guards and the tandem more than flustered many good ball handlers.
Robinson played and started 32 of 33 games for Arkanasas averaging 6.6 points per game and 3.9 rebounds per game in 2011-12. She scored in double figures in eight games with a career-best 26 point game in non-conference win over Texas Southern in late December. Robinson grabbed a career-best 13 rebounds, 10 offensive and three defensive boards, in a win over Texas-Arlington in the home opener. She had a double-double that game with 12 points as well.
AS A SOPHOMORE (2010-11)
Robinson redshirted the 2010-11 season.
AS A FRESHMAN (2009-10)
Robinson is one of the most athletic members of the Razorback women’s basketball team. An intense, quiet player, Robinson saw time in 29 games as a freshman averaging 5.3 ppg and 3.8 rpg. Robinson is a deadly three-point shooter who led the Southeastern Conference in three-point percentage prior to the start of league play. The true freshman went 14-for-33 for 42.4 percent in the opening 12 games. Conference opponents, however, keyed in on Robinson and she went 0-for-18 in SEC games from beyond the arc. Robinson knew it was just a matter of time until she would break out and she did just that hitting four three’s in the first round of the SEC Tournament.
The Baton Rouge, La., native posted double-digits four times with a career-best 17 against East Tennessee State. She had 16 in the first round of the SEC tournament against Vanderbilt. Robinson had a career-best eight boards twice in 2009-10.
AT CAPITOL HS
Robinson was the final spring signee for Razorback basketball team. The 6-0 Louisiana player of the year for Class AAA is a playmaker with size. At 6-0 and with a 20-point-per-game touch, Robinson gives the Razorbacks tremendous flexibility in how she is used in the offense. Recognized as one of the top high school players available during the late signing period, Robinson was ranked highly by All Star Girls Report overall and top 40 in the nation among shooting guards at No. 32.
A double-double average for one of the state of Louisiana’s dominant girls’ basketball programs, Robinson averaged 23.7 ppg and 13 rpg in leading Capitol to a 28-4 state championship season for Class AAA state coach of the year, Alvin Stewart. Robinson was the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Player of the Year for 3A as well as a first-team all-state selection.
Capitol has won two state titles and runner-up a third season with Robinson. She dominated the recent 2009 state championship game with 31 of the Lions’ 63 points. Robinson also pulled down 13 boards for the double in the 22-point win over Lake Charles, La., St. Louis Catholic. Hitting 9-of-13 from the field and 12-of-18 at the line, Robinson was the MVP of the Class AAA title game. A LSWA all-state selection since her sophomore season, Robinson averaged 21 ppg and 10 rpg in 2007 to lead the Lions. Her junior season, Robinson repeated her first-team honors, averaging 22 ppg to lead CHS to the state title.
