Coach Reeve's thoughts

Talented guard with a knack for rebounding and making clutch plays.

An Outside Look

Graham Hays, ESPN.com

Alexander is anything but a one-trick wonder, but feel free to marvel at what the best inch-for-inch rebounder in the college game does on the boards. Just 5-foot-9, she averaged better than nine rebounds per game during the regular season as a senior, a skill she partially credits to her volleyball background. The rebounding aside, she is an athletically dynamic guard not an undersized small forward. Her 3-point range remains a developing skill, but she is an excellent defender and an efficient distributor in an offense that shares playmaking duties.
