Alexandra Garcia (アレクサンドラ・ガルシア Arekusandora Garushia) was Kagami and Himuro's basketball teacher. She is a retired WNBA player and now teaches basketball to kids on the street.

AppearanceEdit

Alexandra has long blonde hair that reaches her lower back. She has fairly large breasts and wears classic glasses. Alexandra is seen wearing a white shirt, a black sweater and jeans, although she often only wears panties indoors. She is Spanish-American.

PersonalityEdit

Alexandra is very flirty, similar to Momoi. She has very affectionate feelings towards Kagami and Himuro, her disciples, even trying to kiss (or successfully kissing) them on occasion.[1][2] And not only towards her students, but she has also kissed Riko. Alex is very clever and cunning, being highly knowledgable about basketball tactics and techniques. She is a natural at seeing someone's strength.[3]

Despite her carefree attitude she can be quite intimidating at times, like when she stated that nobody dared to approach her back in her betting days in streetball, also when she aimed a kick at Haizaki when he lifted her by the neck.[4]

HistoryEdit

Alex teaching Kagami & Himuro

Alex teaching Kagami and Himuro in the states

Alex became a champion in the college tournament NCAA as a member of the UCLA (University of California in Los Angeles) and later played in the WNBA. She was forced to retire from professional basketball when an unknown disease impaired her vision. Unable to cope with it, she went to betting courts on the streets to play basketball for money. She was then approached by Kagami and Himuro, who asked her to teach them basketball. As the two became more and more excited in playing, Alexandra's feelings changed from getting annoyed with the two brats, to being happy to teach them.[5] She began teaching other pupils too. Unfortunately, Kagami went back to Japan and Alexandra only finished her training with Himuro.

StoryEdit

Pre-Winter CupEdit

Alex in USA

Alexandra in the States

Alex was first mysteriously shown during a flashback. It was when Kagami went back to America to train for the Winter Cup and came to see Alexandra. She gave him the assignment to play gambling basket with the gangs in the neighborhood. The bet was ten dollars and she gave him a starting amount of 10 dollars. This was to teach him animal instinct.[6] She explains that everyone must learn animal instinct to make it through the survival of the fittest. When Kagami has mastered this, his reflexes should become much faster.

Winter CupEdit

Round 2Edit

Alex first appears on the scene at Kagami's apartment. She was still sleeping when Koga walked in the room and was shocked to see her laying in the bed. Alexandra got up in a t-shirt and panties and greeted the Seirin team in the living room. She suddenly kisses Kagami, who's flustered and tells her to put some pants on.

They settle around the table and Izuki notices that she is a former WNBA player. Alex explains that she had to retire because of a sickness. When Riko goes to sit next to her, Alex kisses her too. She is however surprised that an elementary student is still awake, to which Kagami says that Riko is in high school. Alex unintentionally insults Riko by saying that she didn't notice because of her flat chest. When Kuroko asks why she came to Japan, she sees that the guy Kagami talked about does indeed look very weak. She tells them that she came to watch the match between Kagami and Himuro and continues by telling her history with them. When the team informs her that they still have to win two matches and that they're now going to watch matches, Alex agrees to go with them.[7]

When at the Winter Cup gym, the company goes to watch many matches, one of them being Shūtoku High vs Ōnita High. Alex immediately sees the power in Ōnita High's ace Kisuke Kobayashi, but is blown away by Midorima's skills. Alex is impressed with the level of basketball in Japan. When the team goes back, Alexandra interrupts Riko by saying that she has to borrow Kagami for a while, that she will teach him some things for the match against Yōsen High. They move to a street ball court and Alex tells Kagami that Himuro has leveled up drastically. She says that she will teach Kagami something he hasn't been taught before.[8]

Naked Alex

The next morning, Kagami is beat from the intense training the day before. He encounters Alex in his apartment, naked as always. Kagami yells at her to put on some clothes and throws some at her, but Alex complains that he shouldn't throw them. She then thinks by herself that this training is tough and that it will depend on Kagami's mental state whether or not he will complete it.[9] The next couple of days, Kagami and Kuroko mostly stay absent from the matches to each focus on their own personal training. Alex completes Kagami's training by finally teaching him the Meteor Jam. She attends Seirin's second and third round of the Winter Cup.[10]

After seeing Yōsen High's third round match, she accidentally encounters them in the hallway. Alex spots Himuro and immediately hangs around his neck and cheerfully says that she missed him. Himuro is surprised that she's even in Japan and Alex attempts to kiss Himuro, but he stops her. He asks for permission to go out and talk somewhere with Alex and they both leave. Outside, Himuro asks her if she already went to see Kagami, which she confirms. She tells him that she's been training him, but that doesn't mean that she only cheers for him. She says that they're her beloved students and that she expects to see a great match. Himuro though, gets irritated and gives her a mean look, saying that she shouldn't treat him like a kid anymore. He says that Kagami is an enemy now and that Himuro is now stronger than Alex. Alex is irked and expresses her disbelief with sarcasm.[11]
