Nia Alexander, a transfer from the University of San Francisco, is joined the Nevada women's basketball team in the 2019-20 season.

Alexander is a graduate transfer making her eligible to play immediately.

“We are so excited to have Nia join our Pack,” said head coach Amanda Levens. “She comes from a phenomenal basketball family and she will make an immediate impact in our program. The fact that she earned her bachelor’s degree in just three years speaks to her commitment to academics. We can’t wait for our fans to get to know Nia and watch her play.”

The Washington native played two seasons at USF but earned her bachelor's degree in three years, giving her two years of eligibility remaining.

Alexander appeared in 31 games for the Dons during her freshman year, averaging 4.8 points per game.

During the 2018-19 season, she scored in double figures in 12 of her 26 games played. Alexander tallied a career-high 20 points in a win over Loyola Marymount where she hit 8-of-16 from the field. She added 11 rebounds in that game as well to post her first-ever double-double.
