Three Iowa women’s basketball players garnered conference recognition on Monday.

Jaime Printy, Kachine Alexander, and Kamille Wahlin earned All-Big Ten honors by the coaches and league media.

Printy — who was also named Big Ten Player of the Week Monday — is a second team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches and a third-team honoree by the media.

Last week, the sophomore averaged 30 points per game and shot 15-of-16 from the free-throw line with a 59 percent field-goal percentage. Printy averages 16.4 points per game this season.

Alexander was named first team All-Big Ten by both the coaches and media and was also one of six players to be selected to the Big Ten all-defensive team. The senior’s 9.4 rebounds per game are the most by any guard in Division I this season.

This season, the 5-9 Alexander became just the fifth player in Big Ten history to record 1,000 career points, 800 career rebounds, and 300 career assists.

Wahlin was an honorable mention pick by the Big Ten coaches and media. The 5-8 point guard eclipsed the career 1,000-point mark this year, and she averages 12.3 points per game.

The trio’s efforts have helped the Hawkeyes earn a No. 4 seed in the Big Ten Tournament, which will begin on Thursday. Iowa received a first-round bye; the Hawks will play No. 5 seed Ohio State (7:30 p.m., Big Ten Network) on Friday.
