The accolades keep coming for Kachine Alexander.

The National Strength and Conditioning Association named the junior member of the Iowa women’s basketball team an All-American on Thursday. The award recognizes student-athletes’ dedication to strength training and conditioning.

“Kachine has been one of the most pleasant surprises I have had in my coaching career,” Iowa head strength and conditioning coach J.C. Moreau said in a statement. “She has completed a full-180 since her arrival as a freshman. Kachine is not only pound-for-pound the strongest and most powerful athlete on the team, she has learned how to translate that strength to the court.”

Alexander missed seven games early in the season after suffering a stress fracture in her right leg, but she recovered to help lead the Hawkeyes to a NCAA Tournament appearance and first-round victory.

The 5-9 guard averaged 16.0 points and 10.4 rebounds in 27 games for Iowa this season. Alexander, from Minneapolis, is one of only 15 Dvision-I women’s basketball players to earn the award this season.

Alexander was also named an honorable mention All-American by both the Associated Press and Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.
