STORRS, Conn. (AP) -- Former Tennessee guard Evina Westbrook has joined the UConn women's basketball team.
UConn said Saturday the 6-footer will have two years of eligibility left.
Westbrook led the Lady Vols with 14.9 points and 5.3 assists a game last season while shooting 42%. She started all 64 games in which she played for the Lady Vols.
She was an SEC All-Freshman Team pick in 2017-18. Westbrook won a gold medal with the U.S. at the 2016 FIBA Americas U18 Championship, where she was a teammate of current UConn player Megan Walker.
Westbrook is among four UConn newcomers, joining freshmen Aubrey Griffin and Ania Makurat and graduate transfer Evelyn Adebayo.
