Carey on Robinson: Kate is one of the best on-ball defenders I've seen. She can defend anyone inside and has the ability to come out and defend on the perimeter. She is very strong and has a soft finish on the boards. Kate has a knack for creating tips which result in team steals and points scored. She can also rebound the ball on both the defensive and offensive end. A very fundamentally skilled and talented player who does all the little things right, Kate will make an immediate impact.
