    So that gives us 3 4* WBB point guards (assuming the 2015s sign this fall) : Brecca Thomas coming in this fall and Leonard and Robinson in fall 2015. I know Coach Finley said they were really looking for point guards and it looks like they have been successful. We sure need these good point guards to handle the ball, especially in pressure situations. Welcome ladies!!!!
    Now coaches please find some more good players for these point guards to get the ball to for the 2014 and 2015 classes!

    Here's an article from Kentucky about Robinson's commitment.

    And other schools she considered.

    Also, her high school team is called the Kittens. So there's that.

    Here's a video from last year. Outdated and short, but it still gives you a little bit of a sense for her game.

    She has a younger sister in 8th grade named Mykasa who is also quite good. Local paper called them the Swish Family Robinson. Hopefully, CU can build a family tradition of playing for the Buffs.

    Another young woman who plays without fear. Again, must have grown up playing BB with the boys. She and Kennedy will be a great Buff tandem down the road.

    Both Alexis and Kennedy will have a shot at immediate and plentiful playing time.

    (tweet)numbers from tweet(/tweet)

    Just replace () with [].

    So (tweet)532643414706511872(/tweet)

    To embed a tweet:

    1. Type "[" plus "tweet" plus "]"
    2. Then copy in the numbers from the URL of the tweet
    3. Finish with "[" plus "/" plus "tweet" plus "]"

    Edit: Goose beat me and had clearer instructions.

    Some coverage from her area.

    The Ashland Independent (multi-page)

    Ashland's coach says that Robinson is the hardest worker he's coached in 35 years, and that she's added 15-20 pounds of muscle. As for her role at CU:

    The Huntington Herald-Dispatch

    About visiting CU:

    And about this season with Ashland:

    Congrats to both Ms. Robinson and Kennedy Leonard for the McDonalds' All American nominations (Source- http://www.mcdonaldsallamerican.com...2015 Nominee List (Boys_Girls) FINAL 1.30.pdf ).

    As to embedding tweets, I'm not the greatest at instructions, but here is what I have done to embed tweets (thanks to cmgoods who gave me initial instructions, sorry as this will probably just make things MORE confusing)-

    1) For easy copying, I saved the following out as a file in some word or note file- [ tweet ]Tweet number[ /tweet ] , only remove ALL SPACES within both brackets. (The spaces are only included here because nothing shows up in this post if I didn't include them.)


    2) When I want to embed a tweet, I 1st copy and paste that [tweet]Tweet number[/tweet] into the "Quick Reply" box in allbuffs.

    3) In twitter, click on the "details" option/ link at the bottom of the specific tweet you want to embed. After doing that, in the address bar near the top of your browser window, there should be a long # (currently an ~18 digit number beginning with 5) at the end of the web address. Copy ONLY the long number and paste it over the "tweet number" part of what was pasted over to allbuffs step 2 (In between the ] and [/ ).

    As an example, what is exactly entered in the quick reply box to embed the tweet in my post #17 above is this-
