Robinson and Rainey Receive Degrees

University of Florida women’s basketball forward Paige Robinson and returning redshirt-senior guard Danielle Rainey are among 54 Gator student-athlete graduates being honored this weekend as they earn their college degrees.
Spring commencement ceremonies, originally slated for this weekend, have moved to July 29-Aug. 2 due to COVID-19.

Robinson and Rainey, both sociology majors, earned spots on the 2020 SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll which was announced on April 23. Rainey earned the accolade for the second straight season.
Robinson, a London, England native, appeared in 49 games over two seasons with the Gators. After transferring in from Midland College in Texas, Robinson provided valuable depth at the forward position as a junior and senior, starting 18 games in her UF career. As a junior, she led the team in blocked shots and appeared in 30 of the squad’s 31 contest. This past season, the 6-foot-4 forward saw time in 19 games.
Rainey, who missed the entire 2019-20 season with a knee injury, will be back competing with Florida in the fall and will pursue a graduate path. In 2018-19, Rainey’s first season with the orange and blue after beginning her career at TCU, the guard averaged 8.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists. In SEC play Rainey upped her production to 9.5 points per game and was the team’s leading returning scorer heading into the 2019-20 campaign.

Rainey is one 10 graduating UF student-athletes expected to compete for the Gators in the 2020-21 season.
Stay tuned this weekend as Robinson and Rainey will be celebrated on the team’s social media accounts.
