MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Alexis Brewer, the sophomore guard who was West Virginia’s top-percentage 3-point shooter last season, plans to transfer.
“Alexis Brewer has decided to pursue other opportunities elsewhere,” said Mountaineers women’s basketball coach Mike Carey. “We’re appreciative of her contributions here at WVU the last two seasons.”
Brewer overcame a December injury to appear in 32 of 35 games for the Mountaineers last season, making 42 percent of her 3s while averaging 6.3 points and 22 minutes.
The Buffalo, Ky., native scored 3.9 points as a freshman.
Brewer’s announcement came one day after West Virginia signed two-time junior college All-American Naomi Davenport of Trinity Valley (Texas) Community College.
A 6-foot guard who averaged 16.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game, Davenport ranked among the nation’s top 10 in 3-pointers and steals while leading Trinity to a runner-up finish in the NJCAA tournament.
“We’re really excited to get Naomi,” Carey said. “She gives us a big-time offensive threat on the perimeter. We think she will come in and contribute immediately to our program. We feel we’re going to be very deep on the perimeter now and do a lot of things we were unable to do last year.”
