Baylor WBB lands All-SEC point guard Lewis as graduate transfer
WACO, Texas (KWTX) - Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey announced the signing of graduate transfer Jordan Lewis of Alabama, Tuesday. Lewis played and started in 130 games at point guard for Alabama and will use her final season of eligibility with the Lady Bears in 2021-22.
Lewis was a second-team All-SEC selection this past season for the Crimson Tide after averaging a career-best 17.0 points per contest. She ranked sixth in the SEC in assists per game at 4.2 and eighth in the league in 3-point field goals made with 47.
“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,” said Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey. “She is a proven player at a high level, Jordan is a key addition to our returning players and will be exciting to watch next year as we compete for a national championship.”
For her career, Lewis has amassed 1,581 points, 510 assists, 535 rebounds, 159 steals and 167 3-point field goals. The 5-7 guard, who hails from Windermere, Fla., received her undergraduate degree in August of 2019 in marketing and will complete her MBA at Alabama in May. Her academic achievements have been equal to, if not greater, than her accomplishments on the court. She was the 2020 SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, a 2020 CoSIDA Academic All-District Selection and a four-time SEC Academic Honor Roll selection.
“I want to thank the University of Alabama for the memorable years spent there. That being said, I have the opportunity to further my playing career at Baylor University and am excited to add to the tradition of successful graduate transfers under Coach Kim Mulkey,” Lewis said. “I look forward to growing and developing as a player and can’t wait to get on campus and meet everyone.”
