The 5-foot-9 Robinson ranks among the Pac-10 leaders in six different categories this season, including scoring (16.6 ppg, 6th Pac-10), assists (4.59 apg, 5th), steals (1.74 spg, 3rd), 3-point field goal percentage (.397, 10th), assist to turnover ratio (2.26, 2nd) and minutes played (31.62 mpg, 10th). The junior guard scored 32 points in the No. 1-seed Huskies' two NCAA Tournament victories last weekend, including 23 points, seven rebounds and three assists in a 97-79 second-round victory over eighth-seeded Pacific.
His 156 assists on the season are the third-most in Husky history, and his 292 career assists rank seventh. Robinson's 59 steals are tied for third in UW's annals and he is third with 138 career steals.
The All-America honor is the second in 11 days for Robinson, who was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-America third-team on Mar. 11. The junior was also a first-team USBWA All-District 9 selection in 2005, and earned his second-straight first-team All-Pac-10 honor.
Robinson and the Huskies will face fourth-seeded Louisville in an NCAA Tournament regional semifinal game in Albuquerque, N.M., Thursday at 4:10 p.m. PST.
