The 411: LSA Sophomore Makynna Robbins Has a Stellar Season
AS THE SONG GOES … IT IS TIME TO REMEMBER THE NAME.
That name is Makynna Robbins, who will enter her junior year at Lutheran South Academy as one of the top basketball players not only for the Pioneers but a rising star in the private school world in the city of Houston.
In 27 games as a sophomore, Robbins averaged a team-leading 18.2 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. She also chipped in 1.9 assists, 2.9 steals and one block per game.
“I was putting in a lot of hard work and my teammates helped me out,” Robbins said. “I love basketball and it just clicked.”
The standout season earned Robbins a second-team, all-state nod and a first-team, all-district recognition as well.
It was in middle school that Robbins “really started putting in work” and at that point knew what it would take to be elite.
Her favorite player is Paige Bueckers, who stars for perennial power UCONN.
“I try to style my game after her. I love her a lot,” Robbins said. “She’s my biggest influence.”
So, what’s the encore?
“I’m just going to continue to put in hard work and working with my teammates so that the whole team can improve,” Robbins said.
