Former Iowa women's basketball guard Kachine Alexander was named the winner of the inaugural Premier Player of College Basketball award on April 16 in Charlotte, N.C.

The honor is based exclusively on fan voting. Alexander beat out the four other finalists, Connecticut's Maya Moore, Duke's Jasmine Thomas, Delaware's Elena Delle Donne, and Arkansas-Little Rock's Chastity Reed.

"I am very honored to receive this award," Alexander said in a release. "I would like to thank all of the great Iowa fans who voted for me. Without their support, this wouldn't have been possible.

"I had the opportunity to play with great teammates and had amazing coaches in my time at Iowa. This award belongs to them as much as it does to me."

Alexander is the only player in Iowa women's basketball history to receive numerous All-America honors, earning honorable mention distinction from the AP and the Women's Basketball Coaches Association in her final two seasons.

She became the 11th player in school history to be selected in the WNBA draft on April 11, when the Minnesota Lynx picked her 26th overall.
