March 28, 2007
Tulsa, Okla. - Tulsa's Jillian Robbins is one of 51 women's basketball players from around the country invited to participate in the WNBA's Pre-Draft Camp in Cleveland, Ohio, on March 30-31.
The camp offers coaches and general managers from all 13 WNBA teams an opportunity to evaluate the top young players prior to the 2007 WNBA Draft set to take place in Cleveland on Wednesday, April 4th. The prospects will showcase their skills and compete against one another in drills, half court scenarios and full court scrimmages during three on-court sessions.
Robbins concluded her outstanding collegiate career with 2,108 points, 1,313 rebounds, 747 field goals, 602 free throws, 347 steals, 251 blocked shots, 66 double-doubles and one triple-double, holding the TU record in all categories.
This season, Robbins averaged 19.7 points, 11.6 rebounds, 3.27 steals and 1.83 blocks per game, while connecting on 52.5-percent of her field goal attempts and 65.0-percent of her free throw attempts. She notched 20 double-doubles, claimed the school's only women's triple-double and scored in double figures in 28 of 30 contests.
Robbins was named the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year, and picked up C-USA first team and C-USA all-defensive team accolades. She led the league in rebounding (11.6) and steals (3.27), and was third in scoring (19.7) and blocked shots (1.83). She also ranked nationally in scoring (#20), rebounds (#7) and steals (#5).
If drafted, Robbins would become the fourth player in school history to sign a contract with a WNBA team. Carla Morrow (1998-2002) signed with the Seattle Storm in 2002, Allison Curtin (2002-03) was drafted by the Detroit Shock in 2003 and Megan Moody (2002-06) signed with the Houston Comets in 2006.
