Hawkeye junior Kachine Alexander was named an All-American honorable mention by the Associated Press on Tuesday. She was one of 46 NCAA Division-I women’s basketball players to earn that honor.

She led the Iowa women’s basketball team with 16 points and 10.4 rebounds on the season. Alexander is also only one of two guards to average a double-double.

She also averaged 11.1 rebounds in conference games — claiming the Big Ten rebounding title and ranking 22nd in the nation.

The Minneapolis native was a Women’s Basketball Coaches Association All-Region pick, a first team All-Big Ten and Big Ten All-Defensive team selection as well. She became Iowa’s all-time leading rebounder among juniors with 281 boards on the season.

She is only the third Hawkeye to be honored by the Associated Press. Amy Herrig (1999) and Cara Consuegra (2001) were also honorable-mention picks.

This is the first such honor for Alexander, who helped lead Iowa to the second-round of the NCAA Women’s Tournament. She’s still in the running to be one of 10 players named to the WBCA’s All-America team on Saturday.
