LINCOLN — Alexa Kastanek started every game of her high school basketball career at Lincoln Southeast. Night after night, she was the steadiest Knight of the bunch.
Yet there’s a bounce in her voice Thursday afternoon as she talks after an Iowa practice. She hasn’t started in her freshman year for the Hawkeyes. Considering her mentor, versatile point guard Sam Logic, is a junior, Kastanek may not be a full-time starter next season, either. But she loves it in Iowa City.
