On Thursday he went 2-for-4 with an RBI and his first career triple. After recording a hit on Friday, Robért came through in a big way with a pair of RBI singles on Saturday to lead the Colonials to the sweep over La Salle and the No. 5 seed in this week's Atlantic 10 Championship.
Behind the plate, Robért gunned down three runners on steal attempts.
The Colonials open play in the Atlantic 10 Championship on Wednesday at 10 a.m. against No. 4 Xavier at Charlotte's Hayes Stadium.
