ATLANTA - Former Lady Vol center Ashley Robinson helped the Seattle Storm capture the WNBA Championship on Wednesday night at Philips Arena in Atlanta.
Robinson saw two minutes of action of the bench as the Storm completed the sweep of the Atlanta Dream with an 87-84 Game 3 victory.
Swin Cash led five players in double figures for the Storm with 18 points. Angel McCoughtry scored 35 in a losing effort for the Dream.
It's the Seattle squad's second WNBA title as the franchise also won the 2004 league crown.
Robinson, a 6-4 center, played in 30 games for Seattle in 2009-10, averaging 1.4 ppg and 1.9 rpg. She played three minutes in Game 1 of the Finals.
Robinson has appeared in 204 regular season games and 14 playoff contests in her seven-year professional career.
She was acquired by the Storm in 2006 from the Chicago Sky. She was a second-round pick by the Phoenix Mercury in 2004.
The Grand Prairie, Texas native averaged 7.0 ppg and 5.1 rpg for the Lady Vols from 2000-04. She played in three Final Fours and ranks third all-time in blocks (200) in Lady Vol history.
