COLUMBIA — The University of Missouri women’s basketball team announced the signing of a junior college All-American on Thursday.
Juanita Robinson, previously of Johnson County Community College (Kan.) and Zion Benton High School (Ill.), will join the Tigers for the 2014-2015 season.
The National Junior College Athletic Association recognized Robinson as a first-team All-American for the 2013-2014 season.
Robinson led Johnson County to a 30-2 record and a first-place conference finish. The team took second at the Region VI Tournament, and Robinson was a first-team All-Region selection.
The 5-foot-10-inch guard played in all 32 games for the Cavaliers and started 27 of them. She averaged 11 points per game on 45 percent shooting while grabbing 5.3 rebounds per game.
She was also second on her team in assists at 3.5 per game.
Robinson joins Missouri standout and recent WNBA draft pick Bri Kulas as another Missouri recruit from Johnson County Community College.
“I think Mizzou is a great fit for me,” Robinson said in a statement from the Missouri athletics department. “When I went on my visit, everything was perfect from the coaches, to the team, to the fans. I just felt like it was perfect for me.”
