Junior Kachine Alexander was named to the State Farm Coaches All-America Team as an honorable mention — one of 40 Division-I women’s basketball players to be chosen.

The Minneapolis native is the fifth player in Iowa history to earn numerous All-American honors in the same season.

Alexander joins former Hawkeyes Michelle Edwards (1988), Franthea Price (1990), Toni Foster (1993), and Cara Consuegra (2001) as players who have earned numerous All-American honors in a single campaign.

Last week, she was an honorable mention on the Associated Press All-American squad.

Alexander was also the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association all-region selection, a first-team All-Big Ten pick, and a Big Ten All-Defensive selection this season.

The 5-9 guard averaged 16 points and 10.4 rebounds for the Hawkeyes — one of two guards in the country to average a double-double.

Alexander won the Big Ten rebound title as well, averaging 11.1 boards per game in conference play. She ranked 22nd nationally in rebounding.
