“Alexis will be a huge addition to our program," Heard said in a release. "She is a proven winner and has the ability to play multiple positions on the floor. She will add more depth for us at the guard position and we are very excited for her to join the Lady Topper basketball family.”

Brewer (5-foot-9) played two seasons at West Virginia and was the Mountaineers' leading 3-point shooter last year. She played in 32 of 35 games and made 42.2 percent of her 3s while averaging 5.3 points per game.

A native of Buffalo, Brewer was named to the Big XII's all-academic team both years at WVU. She spent three seasons at LaRue County High School and her senior season at Bardstown High School.

At BHS, Brewer scored 21.5 points per game and shot 39.2 percent from 3. At LCHS in 2013-14 she scored 22.4 points per game – second only to current WKU senior Ivy Brown's 24.4 ppg. Brewer was a Miss Basketball candidate as a senior, the 5th Region co-player of the year and a Gatorade player of the year in Kentucky and McDonald’s All American nominee.

Brewer's father, James Brewer, played at Louisville from 1988-93
