LadyVolNation Introducing UT LadyVol: Alyssia Brewer (the Swagger)
LadyVolNation here is the next introduction for our 2009-2010 Lady Volunteers. #33 Alyssia Brewer is absolutely the "Swagger" of this team. What do I mean by swagger? She is that one player that can change the entire course of a game. Now let me say that Alyssia and I have been going back and forth about who is the best (right now) Kobe or Lebron? Of course she is a Lebron James fan and she is the ultimate "trash talker!" I won't go into the whole debate, but she knows that all I have to say is, Kobe got four!lol Now back to our regularly scheduled program...lol. Honestly though being able to go back and forth with her like that showed me her competitive nature, and her passion for this game. LVN she is that "enigma" on our team. 6'3 post player with point guard skills? Sounds familiar? It should..now I'm not saying she good as Candace Parker, but I'm just saying. I hate to even put that comparison out there, but you have to see Alyssia run the break, it doesn't make me afraid when I see her coming down the lane on the break handling the ball, because she has those skills. Actually I found out that she played point guard up until 8th grade, where she had a growth spurt and was taught how to play in the post. This team is just so talented that we only get to see a limited amount of what she can do on the court. Matter of fact she truly reminds me of the Lakers Lamar Odom, left-handed, can shoot the short jumper (though I wish she would take the elbow jumper from the freethrow line more), and can lead the break. If she adds the 3point shot to her game, get the bow, cause it's a wrap!
