Robinson a CLASS finalist

OU senior point guard Danielle Robinson was named one of 10 finalists for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award in women’s basketball, an acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School.
Lowe’s encourages student-athletes to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas — community, classroom, character and competition.
A preseason All-American, Robinson is viewed by many as the top point guard in the nation.
Robinson has been a fixture in the local community, serving this year with her teammates at East Main Place, a non-profit transitional housing program for homeless and others struggling in Norman.
She also was an integral part of a local church group who visited earthquake-ravaged Haiti as part of Mission of Hope.
Robinson is on pace to total career figures of more than 2,000 points, 700 assists and 300 steals, a benchmark that’s only been achieved by former NCAA legends Nancy Lieberman and Dawn Staley.
