Chrissy Robison enters her fourth season as the head coach of the Penn State Greater Allegheny Women's Basketball team in 2019-2020. In her first three years with the program, she has led a rebuild that has seen the team become one of the top contenders in all of the Penn State University Athletic Conference.
That rebuild came full circle in 2018-2019 when her team made the PSUAC playoffs for the first time since the 2013-2014 season. They broke the program record for wins in a season (15) and conference wins in a season (11) while grabbing the #2 seed in the tournament. They hosted PSU-Fayette in the first round of the playoffs, a team that gave them trouble all season long, and despite a hard fought battle fell 77-70 ending their season.
The 2017-18 season saw the PSUGA Women's Basketball team finish 4-17 overall including a 4-10 record in conference play. Despite the slow start to the season, the PSUGA Women's Basketball team gained some momentum at the end of the year winning three of their last four games giving them some confidence as they headed towards the off-season. Robison helped coach Andrea Burroughs to 9.8 rebounds per game which was good for fifth in all of the Penn State University Athletic Conference.
In her first season with the team Robison started her rebuild of the program with six freshman and only five upper classmen. She was able to lead PSUGA to a 6-16 overall record including a 3-10 record in conference play. During her time with PSUGA, Robison has coached three PSUAC All-Conference players and three United States Collegiate Athletic Association All-Americans.
Robison, 1990 graduate of McKeesport High School, received a four-year basketball scholarship to Duquesne University. At Duquesne, Robison was named 1994 Female Student-Athlete of the Year as well as First-Team All-Academic in Black Issues in Education Magazine.
After graduating from Duquesne University in 1994 with a degree in elementary/special education, Robison returned to her Alma Mater and served as teacher and assistant basketball coach for 5 ½ years. Robison was promoted to head coach taking over for the legendary Coach Gerald “Puddin” Grayson. Serving as head coach for another 5 ½ years, Robison started McKeesport High School Girls Basketball Summer League and Coach French’s Hoop Camp.
Robison left high school basketball and began coaching AAU starting her own club, PA Lil Ballers, for four years before joining Courttime Sports Center (CTS). At Courttime Sport Center, the veteran coached many different teams at many different age groups before now serving as both the Program Director and coach of a junior high and high school elite team.
Coach Robison has been back in the WPIAL state of mind as the local led Woodland Hills High School Girls Varsity Basketball team for two seasons prior to her tenure at PSUGA. Robison's passion for the game has never faded over the past 23 years. Robison stated, "I am very excited to share my wealth of experience at the collegiate level."
