In what would be her last game at Princeton, forward Leslie Robinson ’18 gave the wider world of women’s basketball a glimpse of the versatility that Tiger fans had come to treasure. Robinson scored nine points and grabbed six rebounds in Princeton’s NCAA Tournament loss to Maryland March 16, and her team-high five assists included the crisp passes to a cutting Bella Alarie ’20 late in the second quarter that sparked the Ivy League-champion Tigers’ most impressive stretch. Maryland would flip the momentum in the third quarter on its way to a 77–57 victory. 

Two weeks earlier, Robinson recorded what is believed to be the first triple-double in Princeton basketball history (women’s and men’s), tallying 10 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists in a March 2 win over Brown.
