NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt women’s basketball head coach Stephanie White has announced the addition Akira Levy to the 2019-20 roster.
Levy, a 5-8 guard, started four games for Missouri last season and averaged 15.8 minutes per game. The Baxter, Tennessee, native shot 48.1% from the field and 70.0% from the stripe. She also collected 58 assists.
“We are excited to welcome Akira home and into the Vanderbilt family,” White said. “She was Tennessee’s Miss Basketball, a state champion and has SEC-level talent. She will make an immediate impact on our team with her energy, toughness, competitiveness and leadership. We will be able to use this season for her to get healthy, as well as adjust to Vanderbilt and our team.”
Levy attended Upperman High School and helped lead her team to three consecutive appearances in the state final, claiming championships in 2017 and 2018. She was named the Tennesseee AA state tournament MVP during both state title runs.
The guard was named to the 2018 All-USA Tennesseee first team and named Tennessee’s AA Miss Basketball in 2017 and 2018.
