Duquesne is on a mission to add talented, veteran guards to their 2022-23 roster and will host such a player this weekend.
Florida International transfer guard Tevin Brewer will be in Pittsburgh this weekend for an official visit to Duquesne.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Brewer is coming off an outstanding season in which he averaged 15.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game. From the field, Brewer shot 42.6% and 39.8% from 3- point range.
Per the website Synergy Basketball, Brewer was the top rated pick and roll passer in the country, as he created 12.1 points per game.

Not only is Brewer talented on the court but he’s a high character teammate and leader. Following his decision to transfer, here’s what Florida International Head Coach Jeremy Ballard had to say about him.
“One day it might not be his night to score, but he’ll do whatever it takes to get another man the ball…Brewer plays the most unselfish basketball I’ve ever seen”.
One off the court tidbit to consider. Brewer’s long time best friend is current Pittsburgh Steeler defensive back Tre Norwood.
In a best case scenario, Keith Dambrot wants to add both Brewer and talented Miami, Ohio transfer guard Dae-Dae Grant, who made an official visit last weekend. A possible guard rotation of Brewer, Grant and Tre Clark, who transferred from VCU, would be a marked improvement from last year and allow them to be competitive in the improving Atlantic 10 conference.
Duquesne not only wants to add veteran guards to their program but are hoping to add a younger one too, who can be relaxed and can learn from the veterans. The Dukes coaching staff is actively pursuing Quaker Valley’s Adou Thiero and Butler’s Devin Carney.
