Further, she grew up with her brother, Jonathan, who also played basketball at Hampton College in Virginia. Robinson said, “I have an older brother and basically, whatever he did, I wanted to do. And basketball was the first sport I saw him play and so I followed in his footsteps. I went to all his practices when I was young and actually jumped into them – no matter how small I was – and just fell in love with the game.”

Following her excellent basketball performance at Archbishop Mitty High School, she enrolled at the University of Oklahoma where she played for the Oklahoma Sooners women's basketball team from 2007 to 2011.
