Some unfortunate news concerning a new addition to the Duquesne men’s basketball program.
Transfer guard Tevin Brewer has been hospitalized for an extended period of time following an unexpected surgery.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Brewer was released from Mercy Hospital today following a nine day stay due to severe complications resulting from an appendectomy.
This unexpected health situation will sideline Brewer for an undetermined amount of time. There is no indication at this point when Brewer will be able to return to the practice court for Keith Dambrot’s squad.
Brewer transferred to Duquesne from Florida International this offseason and was looked at by many to become the Dukes’ starting point guard this season. That obviously will be on hold until he’s able to get healthy.
The 5-foot-8, 160-pound guard started all 66 of his games over the last three seasons at FIU. His offensive production improved each season, leading up to his breakout year last year in which he averaged 15.2 points, 5.6 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game. In 340 career games, Brewer is a 39% three-point shooter.
