MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee Women's Basketball assistant coach Kim Brewton was listed as one of the nation's premier assistants in the country by Felicia Hall Allen & Associates. Brewton, who just completed her fourth season at MT, was listed sixth among 25 honorees.

Coaches were chosen based on criteria which included team success, team improvement from previous season, fulfillment of team potential, and the professional manner and attitude of the coach. The winners were selected by NCAA Division I collegiate women's basketball head coaches and assistant coaches.

Since her arrival at Middle Tennessee, Brewton has helped Coach Rick Insell and the Blue Raiders produce a record of 103-28 (.786). The Raiders have won three regular season Sun Belt titles and a SBC Tournament Championship in 2013. This past season, MT produced the second-most wins in program history en route to a Conference USA regular season and tournament titles.

During Brewton's tenure, she has helped coach four All-Conference honorees. In 2014, freshman Olivia Jones earned C-USA Freshman of the Year honors and senior Ebony Rowe was tabbed the league's Player of the Year.

Brewton has transformed the Blue Raider backcourt in her four seasons, including helping Kortni Jones successfully move from the point guard to shooting guard position in 2011-12. In her first year playing primarily at the '2', Jones became an All-Sun Belt First Team honoree and finished as the team's leading scorer. Additionally, Jones set the single-season school and Sun Belt record with 115 made three-pointers.

Prior to arriving in Murfreesboro, Brewton spent six seasons, 2004-05 through 2009-10, as an assistant for her father, Rick Reeves, at Gardner-Webb in Boiling Springs, North Carolina.
