WACO, Texas (AP) — Big 12 women’s basketball champion Baylor added another graduate transfer when Alabama starting point guard Jordan Lewis signed with the Lady Bears.
The signing of Lewis, who started 130 games the past four seasons for the Crimson Tide, was announced by Baylor on Tuesday night.
The 5-foot-7 guard from Windermere, Florida, averaged 17.0 points and 4.2 assists per games this past season for Alabama, where she finished her career with 1,581 points, 510 assists, 535 rebounds, 159 steals and 167 3-point field goals.
“We’re excited to add Jordan Lewis to our Lady Bear family. She brings immediate experience at the guard position along with a relentless desire to win,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. “She is a proven player at a high level, Jordan is a key addition to our returning players.”
Lewis is the fifth graduate transfer to sign with Baylor the past three years, following Chloe Jackson, Te’a Cooper, Erin DeGrate and DiJonai Carrington. Jackson, Cooper and Carrington were all WNBA draft picks after playing for the Lady Bears their final college seasons.
Lewis received her undergraduate degree in marketing from Alabama in August 2019, and is set to complete her MBA in May.
