ODU's Lewis invited to pro free agent camp

A few months ago, with her undergraduate degree in hand, Old Dominion's Tia Lewis  had a decision to make - move on to the next phase of her life, or re-join the Lady Monarchs for one final season.

Looks like she made the right choice.

The 6-3 center/forward has flourished under new coach Karen Barefoot and will be evaluated by WNBA coaches and staff during the ProHoops Free Agent Camp on March 31 in Denver.

"Tia is leaving her own legacy here at Old Dominion and is continuing to (have) a huge impact on a young team in a rebuilding process," Barefoot said. "Her competitiveness, focus, dedication, leadership and passion for the game will lead her to fulfill her dreams. I enjoy coaching her and look forward to seeing her finish the season strong while marching to her future goals."

A third-team All-CAA selection last season, Lewis is averaging 18.3 points - more than six points higher than last season (12.1) - and 8.8 rebounds while shooting 51.4 percent from the field. She has scored 1,451 points and is tied for sixth on the Lady Monarchs' all-time rebounding list with 1,008.
