Alex Coyne delivers for UWF
It's been a history making season for UWF women's basketball, and one of the biggest reasons is senior point guard Alex Coyne . Her arrival two years ago has been huge for the program and for her.
Coyne just exudes toughness on the court. A prime example came in the Regional Final win. She went out with what looked like a serious knee injury in the 4th quarter, only to come back in and score seven of the final 11 points.
The Pittsburgh native started her college career at Division One Southern Miss, but despite being a starter, she wasn't happy there, and decided to leave after her sophomore season. A visit to UWF convinced her she did want to keep playing and this was the place. The coaches remembered her from an exhibition game the year before and were sold on her as well.
Coyne has delivered exactly as advertised, on the court and off it. Coyne is a nightmare for opposing defenses, she can score it., averaging ten and a half points, but she's most lethal as a passer. Just under seven assists a game, ranks 2nd in the nation.
