Iowa women’s basketball senior Kachine Alexander and sophomore Jaime Printy were named honorable All-Americans by the AP Tuesday.

Alexander was earlier slotted this season as a first team All-Big Ten selection, in addition to being named to the league’s All-Defensive team. She scored 14.5 points per game while also averaging 9.5 rebounds. The Minneapolis native also recorded 10 double-doubles. Alexander is the first Hawkeye woman to be named an All-American twice in her career — she also garnered honorable-mention honors last season.

Printy led the Hawkeyes in scoring this season, averaging 16.8 points per game. The 5-11 guard shot 38.3 percent from 3-point range and also hit her free throws at a 86.4 percent clip. Printy is the youngest Iowa women’s basketball player to ever be honored as an All-American.

“We are thrilled for Kachine and Jaime,” head coach Lisa Bluder said in a release. “Both players worked extremely hard all season, and this is a tremendous honor for both players. They can say they were voted as two of the top 47 players in the country by the Associated Press. That’s an impressive achievement.”

Only eight other schools joined Iowa as teams with numerous honorees.
