Robinson Heads Overseas

Add a new name to the ranks of Storm players overseas. Center Ashley Robinson, having completed her internship for the Dallas Mavericks and her time working with a prep team in the Dallas area, is now playing for Pankup TED Kayseri Koleji in Turkey. If that club sounds familiar, it's because Camille Little played for Kayseri before deciding to return to the U.S. Robinson has in effect taken Little's spot on the roster. Robinson had six points, six rebounds and two blocks earlier today as Kayseri lost 71-61 to Besiktas Cola.

Good news from Ireland, where Kristen O'Neill has been named the Irish Superleague Player of the Month for February. O'Neill finished the regular season as the Superleague's leading scorer at 25.5 points per game. She also ranks in the top 10 in rebounding (9.9, sixth), steals (3.1 spg, fourth), blocks (1.6, fourth), free throws (58, third) and three-pointers (26, tied for second)

O'Neill's UL Aughnish squad hosts the first leg of a two-game aggregate semifinal series against Team Montenotte Hotel Cork this Saturday.
