Robinson leads Richmond into region road game against #4 Cross Creek

Richmond's Jasmine Robinson can take on a whole unit if needed.

Richmond (9-7, 3-0) at #4 Cross Creek (14-4, 3-0)

Class AAAA, Region 3

#3 Cross Creek has dominated class AAAA, region 3 action, but first mention in this preview of undefeated (in region) opponents has to go to Richmond's Jasmine Robinson. The Augusta Chronicle Player of the Week and Troy signee scored 50 points in the Lady Musketeers' 62-56 overtime win over Hephzibah Tuesday.

Robinson and the Lady Musketeers got things done in different ways the last two times I saw them play. First Robinson led Richmond to a 30-18 halftime lead over Aiken in December, scoring 23 first half points before finishing with 35 in her team's 56-46 win. Robinson, who has posted enormous numbers against the town's best teams, talked that night about the importance of playing against great competition:

Robinson's leadership had to have an impact in Richmond's region schedule opening win over Baldwin, when three Lady Musketeers finished in double figures:

But even heroics may not be able to stop #4 Cross Creek

It will take a lot to stop Nya Daniels and #4 Cross Creek.

Since surviving nicely an incredibly pre-conference schedule, #4 Cross Creek has looked unstoppable. The Lady Razorbacks, led by Memphis signee Alana Davis, who is supported by a complete surrounding cast (shown below), have won their three region games by an average margin of 26 points! And all three opponents were state tournament teams a season ago.

If any player could engineer an upset at Cross Creek, it's Jasmine Robinson. But she and her teammates have a lot of work to do to make that happen.

Don't forget...
