Marquette University point guard ANGEL ROBINSON (St. Paul Central) and University of Iowa shooting guard KACHINE ALEXANDER (Benilde-St. Margaret’s) were dominant players during their prep and collegiate basketball careers.
Now both hope to continue that dominance at the pro level, coming back to the state in which both learned their craft.
Robinson, who led St. Paul Central to the Class 4A girls’ title in 2007, was the 22nd pick of the New York Liberty in the WNBA draft. Her draft rights were traded to the Minnesota Lynx.
Alexander, who exploded on the prep scene by leading Benilde-St. Margaret’s to the Class 3A title in 2006, was selected 26th by the Lynx.
Robinson started at point guard for Marquette four years and was an All-Big East selection this past season. Alexander was Iowa’s shooting guard and earned All-Big Ten honors as a junior and senior.
