Lady Vols point guard Evina Westbrook announced her decision to remain in the transfer portal on Tuesday.
The Salem, Oregon native averaged nearly 15 points and 5.3 assists per game throughout the course of her sophomore season. According to ESPN, Westbrook was the No. 2 overall prospect in the 2017 class. (UCONN’s Megan Walker was No. 1 overall)
After the Lady Vols suffered a 77-89 loss to the UCLA Bruins in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, a reporter asked Westbrook what Tennessee’s offseason focus needed to be. She responded, “I just think off-the-court stuff, steps need to be taken with our staff and just off the court with this team.
Four days after the interview, Holly Warlick was terminated, and later replaced by Kellie Harper.
Westbrook had previously entered her name into the transfer portal, and, after a conversation with Harper, decided to go through with the transfer. Harper stated that “we wish her well.”
It is unknown at this point in time where Westbrook will transfer to.
