Iowa senior guard Kachine Alexander on Monday was named to the 2010-11 Naismith Midseason Top 30 list for women’s basketball.

Named after Dr. James Naismith, the award — presented by the Atlanta Tipoff Club — recognizes the top college women’s basketball player of the year.

Alexander, who is also one of 20 midseason candidates for the John R. Wooden Award, has averaged 14.4 points and 9.5 rebounds per game. The top rebounding guard in NCAA Division-I basketball has eight double-doubles this season.

The Minneapolis native is the first Iowa player to record 1,000 career points, 800 career rebounds, and 300 career assists.

The 5-9 guard has scored 39 points in the Hawkeyes’ last two outings, which helped her team post back-to-back Big Ten victories over Minnesota and Northwestern.

The list of 30 will be reduced to four finalists in March. The recipient will be chosen by the board of selectors and fan voting in April.
