Troy Brewer to American U.

Troy Brewer has decided to finish his playing career at American University.

Troy had become disenchanted with his prospects with the Georgia basketball program during his sophomore year. He wasn't receiving much playing time under Coach Felton, and after Felton was let go, he decided to pursue other options. Without even waiting to see who the new head coach would be, Troy, along with Zac Swansey, announced that he would transfer from UGA. Swansey ended up going to Tennessee Tech.

American University sounds like a good fit for Brewer. The school is located in Washington, D.C., which makes it close to Troy's home in Gaithersburg, Maryland. AU is a much smaller school, with 6,000 undergraduate students. The Eagles compete in the Patriot League, playing against the likes of Army, Navy, Lehigh, Lafayette, and Holy Cross.

American went 24 and 8 in basketball last year, won the Patriot League, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. American lost by 13 to Villanova.


Good luck, Troy!
