Brewer no longer with Lady Vols

KNOXVILLE (UT) -- Pat Summitt, University of Tennessee head women’s basketball coach, announced this afternoon that Alyssia Brewer was no longer with the Lady Vol basketball team.

“We met with Lyssi yesterday and came to an agreement that she would no longer be a member of the team,” said Summitt. “She will finish this semester at UT and we will help her if she’d like to transfer to another school.”

Brewer, a rising 6’3” senior from Sapulpa, Okla., averaged 2.9 ppg, 2.6 rpg and 10.0 minutes per outing in 20 games as a junior. She earned seven starting assignments after coming back from a torn Achilles tendon suffered before the start of the 2010-11 season.

During her career, she scored 599 points (6.9 ppg) and grabbed 396 rebounds (4.6 rpg) while appearing in 87 games and starting 20 contests.
