    The UConn women's basketball team and head coach Geno Auriemma announced the addition of guard Evina Westbrook as a transfer. Westbrook spent her first two seasons at Tennessee where she started all 64 games she appeared in. The 6-foot guard has two remaining years of eligibility.

    In 2018-2019, she led the Lady Vols with 14.9 points and 5.3 assists per game while shooting 41.9 percent from the field.

    Westbrook was named to the SEC Community Service Team in 2018-2019 and was an SEC All-Freshman Team pick in 2017-2018.

    She won gold with Team USA at the 2016 FIBA Americas U18 Championship, where she was teammates with current Husky Megan Walker.

    Westbrook joins freshmen Aubrey Griffin, Ania Makurat and graduate transfer Evelyn Adebayo as newcomers to UConn for the 2019-2020 season.
