695HOOPS WHERE IT'S ALWAYS ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS
Mount De Sales sophomore guard Lilli Robb had a great summer while leading her Columbia Ravens 14 and Under team to a Maryland State AAU championship. Fresh off a trip from Italy, the fiesty redhead is ready to lead her team through the stretch run of the IAAM season. Ms. Robb took a few minutes to answer some questions for 695Hoops.
695: Where did you grow up?
Lilli: I grew up in Richmond, Virginia.
695: How did you start playing ball?
Lilli: For my first birthday my dad said he put a stuffed basketball in my crib and since then I haven't been able to keep my hands off the ball.
695: Do you play any other sports?
Lilli: I used to play soccer but running on the grass hurt my knees so now I just play basketball.
695: What do you want to add to your game?
Lilli: I'd like to be able to shoot better when someone is contesting my shot. Not let a hand in my face change it. Trying to be like Kobe.

Lilli: The Maryland Grizzlies and Columbia Ravens.
695: Tell me about a funny AAU road trip...

Lilli: To improve my game so that when college comes I'll be ready for the next level.
695: What was the highlight of the summer for you?

Lilli: Drake, Justin Timberlake, Lil' Wayne, Beyonce, Kanye West and Nikki Minaj.
