Keishawn Brewton, a guard who played last season at Coastal Carolina, announced Thursday night that he will join the University at Buffalo men's basketball team as a transfer.
Brewton averaged 14.5 points and 2.3 rebounds in 22 games in 2019-20 at Coastal Carolina. He entered the transfer portal in February, after one season with the Chanticleers. He was Coastal Carolina's second-leading scorer last season.
Brewton announced his transfer to UB on Thursday on his Twitter account.
"First off, I would like to take this time to thank God for giving me another chance. I would like to thank all my loved ones for (their) constant support and not giving up on me, also seeing the best in me," Brewton wrote on Twitter.
"Furthermore, I have to say I'm beyond thankful for Coach Whitesell for giving me another chance to play the game I love. Finally, with that being said, I'll be attending the University (at) Buffalo for my senior year."

Brewton will have to sit out the 2020-21 season, per NCAA transfer guidelines, unless he applies for and is granted a waiver that would allow him to play immediately for the Bulls.
Prior to his only season at Coastal Carolina, the 6-foot-4 guard from Spartanburg, S.C., played for two seasons at Chipola College in Marianna, Fla. He averaged 19.4 points and 3.4 rebounds as a sophomore in 2018-19 at Chipola.
Brewton is the third player to join the Bulls' incoming class. He joins Malik Zachery, a 6-foot-2-inch point guard from Camillus who committed to UB in April. and Chanse Robinson, a 6-foot guard from Louisiana who signed a national letter of intent with UB in November. Robinson will be a freshman, while Zachery joins the Bulls after two seasons at Chipola, where he was a teammate of Brewton's in 2018-19.
