Angel Robinson's draft stock appears to have risen since the 19-points, eight assists and six rebounds she contributed in Marquette's loss at No. 1 seed Tennessee in the second round of the NCAA Championship.
According to ESPN Hoopgurlz's Chris Hansen (along with contributions from senior writer Glenn Nelson and national evaluators Brandon Clay and Keil Moore of HoopGurlz, as well as ESPN TV analyst LaChina Robinson) Robinson is listed No. 19 on ESPN.com's 2011 WNBA Draft top prospects list. Below is what they had to say about Marquette's four-year starting point guard.
The game against Tennessee in the NCAA tournament woke up the rest of the country to what Marquette fans knew Robinson was capable of. Her notable skill is creating with the ball, but that goes beyond scoring the basketball. She doesn't have the height to be a regular rotation shooting guard, but as a point guard she put up a respectable 1.6 assist-to-turnover ratio as a senior and helped scare the hoopla out of the Lady Vols with her determination and shot-making ability. She needs to improve her 3-point shooting.

Should Robinson be one of the 36 draft picks Monday afternoon, she will be the second player in Marquette women's basketball history to be drafted. Abbie Willenborg was the first when the Houston Comets selected her with the 64th pick in the 2000 draft.
