Coach McKeown: "Alexis is one of the top players in the state of Illinois and we were really excited when she chose Northwestern. I love her toughness and the fact that she plays in such a high-level high school program (Rolling Meadows). Alexis also is a great student-athlete that understands the value of education and what a Northwestern degree can do for her. She also is unselfish and will fit our team concept at NU."
