Head Coach Keith Brown announces his two additions

Krystal Reeves-Evans comes to the Hilltop after spending ten seasons at Gardner-Webb University including the past two as the associate head coach for the women's basketball program.

She will serve as the recruiting coordinator and focus on the Hoyas' offensive schemes.

During her time at Gardner-Webb, the Runnin' Bulldogs improved, going from five wins in 2003-04 to a GWU program-best 28 wins in 2009-10 as well as a Big South Championship a year later.

The 2010-11 season, her first as the associate head coach, the Runnin' Bulldogs had a number of firsts winning the conference tournament and earning an NCAA Tournament berth. GWU posted a 23-11 overall record in 2010-11, tallying back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time in the program's 36-year history.

The season prior, Gardner-Webb went 28-5 overall and 15-1 in conference play to win the Big South Conference Regular Season Title, the program's first regular season conference title in its history. The Runnin' Bulldogs' 28 wins set a new record for the most victories in a single season by a GWU women's basketball team in its history and ties the most wins for a Big South Conference team in the history of the league.

Reeves-Evans arrived at Gardner-Webb from the University of Southern Mississippi, where she served as an administrative assistant for two years.


A graduate of Southern Miss, Reeves-Evans played for the Golden Eagles under her father, head coach Rick Reeves, from 1999-2002 after transferring from Liberty University in 1999.

As a freshman at Liberty during the 1998-99 season, Reeves-Evans helped the Flames to the Big South Conference Tournament title and an NCAA Tournament berth. After following her father to Southern Miss, Reeves-Evans helped lead the Golden Eagles to the WNIT in 2000.

Reeves-Evans graduated from Southern Miss in 2002 with a degree in biological sciences and an emphasis in pre-med. She was named the University of Southern Mississippi Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the 2000-01 season.

She completed her MBA in the summer of 2008 at Gardner-Webb University and also served as an adjunct professor in the sports management department at GWU.

Reeves-Evans and her husband, Jerton, have three daughters Braylee (3), Britton (2) and Brielle (1). They reside in Woodbridge, Va.
