It was Shorter’s fifth consecutive win, including four straight against Gulf South Conference opponents.
Shorter’s last three conference wins have each been decided by one point.
In Saturday’s game, Karisma Boykin intercepted an inbound pass at mid-court as time expired to seal the victory for the Lady Hawks.
Shorter (11-6, 6-3 GSC) led 28-25 at the half.
The Lady Hawks built as much as a nine-point lead in the second half, but the Lady Chargers (8-11, 5-4 GSC) rallied and took the lead, 55-54, on a pair of free throws by Jasmine Harmon.
But Alexander, the former Coosa star, put Shorter back in front with her late layup.
She finished with nine points while dishing out five assists.
Kristin Nash led Shorter with 14 points.
Lynette Harris scored 11 with six rebounds, and Boykin had 10 points, five rebounds, five assists and zero turnovers in 35 minutes of playing time.
“Today was another really good win for us,” said coach Vic Mitchell. “We played very well on the defensive end of the court, and it came down to Ieshia making a tremendous play at the end of the game. We are playing with a lot of confidence right now, and it has been good to play in front of our home crowd as well.”
UAH got 19 points from Morgan Duncan.
Shorter travels to West Alabama on Thursday.
