Tulsa, Oklahoma - University of Tulsa Head Women's Basketball Coach Kathy McConnell-Miller announced today the signing of Candice Brewer to a national letter-of-intent.

Brewer, a 5'8" guard from Fayetteville, Ark., averaged 18.0 points, 2.7 assists and 3.2 steals per game as a junior, all team highs. She led Fayetteville High School to a 19-9 record last season and a first-round state playoff appearance. Brewer was an all-conference, all-state and all-state tournament team selection a year ago. She was also the Arkansas State Champion in the long jump and is among the top-25 track athletes in the state of Arkansas. Greg Swaim's Midwest Basketball and National PrepHoops rate Brewer among the top-5 players in the state. This past summer, she was selected to the Basketball Congress International All-America team.

Brewer is the daughter of Ron Brewer, a two-time All-America basketball player at Arkansas, who played for the Razorbacks from 1976-78 and led the Hogs to the 1978 Final Four.

"Candice will have an immediate impact on our program," McConnell-Miller said. "She is an extremely talented player who plays with a lot of confidence. She will give us speed, quickness and athleticism. Candice is the type of player who makes everyone on the floor better.

"She comes from a great basketball background and I have no doubt she will provide leadership and will make a difference in our program."

She chose Tulsa over Arkansas, Memphis and New Mexico State. Tulsa has now signed four players during the early singing period.
