SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Game Time League wrapped up with Monica's/Bob's Your Uncle winning the championship Wednesday night by defeating Cullen/Falbo, 90-66. The final score also resulted in an undefeated season for Monica's, proving just how dominant the team was throughout the entire summer. The following players have been selected as Game Time All-stars.

MVP: Kachine Alexander

Alexander scored 42 points in the championship game, leading her team to victory. The former Iowa guard was one of the premier scorers in the league — she averaged 22.3 points per game while averaging 11.5 rebounds.

Alexander was a leader for her team on and off the court. Her experience as a four-year player for the Hawkeyes rubbed off, and her team finished with a perfect 6-0 record.

Kelly Krei (Iowa)

The Iowa forward averaged 14.5 points per game for a team that reached the championship game. Krei was part of a scoring trio —along with Melissa Dixon and K.K. Armstrong — that averaged over 35 points a game during the regular season. The Hawkeye senior didn't finish off the season the way she would have liked to, but she put her team in a position to win.

K.K. Armstrong (Northern Iowa)

Northern Iowa's point guard was dependable all season for her Game Time teammates — Armstrong averaged 13.8 points per game in the regular season. The 5-7 junior was a great on-the-ball defender, and her defense ignited her team when the players had trouble scoring.

Armstrong averaged 6 assists per game, and she was excellent in keeping all of her teammates involved.

Morgan Johnson (Iowa)

The Iowa center was spectacular despite playing without a consistent second scorer on her team. Johnson averaged 19.3 points per game and 9.5 rebounds per game during the regular season.

Samantha Logic (Iowa)

Throughout the summer, the Racine, Wis., native showed what all of the hype is about. Logic averaged 19.8 points per game and 7.3 rebounds per game in the regular season.

An incoming freshman, Logic teamed with Virginia Johnson this summer to form a formidable duo. These two caused trouble for teams all season long.

Honorable Mention

Virginia Johnson (Iowa)

Johnson averaged 20.3 points per game in the regular season while being a beast on the boards. The City High product led the Game Time in rebounding, averaging 12.5 rebound per game before the playoffs started. The season didn't end as planned for them though, as the pair of Hawkeyes went cold in their playoff loss.

Melissa Dixon

Dixon showed good chemistry with Krei and Armstrong throughout the season, averaging 17.5 points per game and was a consistent 3-point shooter.

A part of Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder's heralded 2011 recruiting class, the freshman gave fans a glimpse of what she is capable of doing once she puts on an Iowa jersey. The experience Dixon gained this summer playing with other college players could prove to be valuable in her transition from high school to the Big Ten.
