MOORHEAD -- Raegan Alexander had a milestone junior season for the St. Louis Park girls basketball team.

On Tuesday, she capitalized on that success, committing to play for MSU-Moorhead.

The 6-foot-1 forward averaged 16.6 points per game while grabbing 9.5 rebounds per contest.

She became the third Orioles players last season to reach the 1,000 career point benchmark.

Prospects getting the chance to visit college campuses have been rare since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, but the NCAA ruled Division II schools could do in-person, on-campus recruiting, depending on state guidelines.

Alexander took advantage of that opportunity, taking a visit to MSUM, her first visit of the pandemic. It ended up playing a vital role in her decision-making process.

"I'm a very visual person, I like to go and feel and see campuses," Alexander said. "It helped to be able to go on my visit and see campus."

When she saw what the Dragons had to offer, she had no reservations.

"Once I went there and I felt like it was right, I was just like, 'Why wait,'" Alexander said.
