2011-12 Season
◊ Named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll.
◊ Recipient of the team's Academic Award.
◊ Called by Andy Landers the most dedicated player to the team over the past season. Utilizing UGA's "marble system" for above and beyond efforts, Crews earned a total of 177 marbles during the 2011-12 season. "She set a bar at a place that it needs to be for others to attempt to match."
◊ A fourth-year junior, Crews decided to forego her senior season of eligibility after she graduated in the summer.
◊ Scored her first points as a Lady Bulldog - and supplied the game's final digits - by knocking down a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left against TCU in the season opener.
◊ Faced former Jefferson High School teammate MiMi DuBose when Georgia played at Georgia Southern.
◊ Saw her first, first-half SEC action at Ole Miss...and repeated that against Mississippi State in Athens.
◊ Started for the Lady Bulldogs on "Senior Day" and helped the Lady Bulldogs force a shot-clock violation by LSU in the game's initial possession.
◊ Said Andy Landers after the regular-season finale: "Brit deserved that start. She's earned it. She has invested as much, if not more, as any player on our roster in the gym and the weight room this season."

2010-11 Season
◊ Sat out the 2010-11 campaign per NCAA rules regarding transfers but practiced with the Lady Bulldogs and provide valuable depth there.
◊ Left a full scholarship at Brenau, an NAIA institution in Gainesville, Ga., to become a walk-on at UGA.
◊ Over two seasons at Brenau, made more three-point field goals (18) than two-point baskets (4) and shot a significantly better percentage from three-point range (.474) than on shots taken inside the arc (.154).
◊ Caught Andy Landers' attention while Brenau players were assisting with demonstration of drills at a coaching clinic during the summer of 2009.
◊ Landers asked for a player who could definitely hit a three-pointer from the corner on an inbounds play. Crews stepped up - and after considerable taunting from Landers - calmly hit the three.

2009-10 Season
◊ Named to the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) All-Academic Team.
◊ Played in 16 games, missing approximately two months of the season due to a broken finger.
◊ Helped the Golden Bears compile a 17-14 record.
◊ Reached double digits in the scoring column twice, against Milligan and Southern Wesleyan.
◊ Thirteen of her 14 FGs - and 25 of her 35 shots from the floor - were from behind the the three-point arc.
◊ Led the Golden Tigers in three-point percentage, connecting on 52.0 percent of her shots.
◊ Exploded for a career-high 15 points against Southern Wesleyan by canning five threes.
2008-09 Season
◊ Saw action in 16 games as a freshman, scoring a season-high eight points in a 92-30 victory over Spelman.
◊ Posted a better three-piont shooting percentage (.385) than overall (.276). In fact, shot nearly 20 percent better from three-point range than from inside the arc.

High School
◊ Coached by Jason Gibson at Jefferson as a senior after playing at North Hall High School for three years.
◊ Coached by Debbie Blake at North Hall, where she was a three-year member of the varsity team.
◊ Named honorable mention All-Northeast Georgia by the Athens Banner-Herald and honorable mention all area by the Gainesville Times as a senior.
◊ Helped North Hall to a 17-11 record and a bid to the AAA state tournament as a junior.
◊ Member of North Hall's 2006 squad that made an improbable run the quarterfinals of Georgia's AAA state tournament. The Trojans entered the state tourney with just a 13-15 record but upset Franklin County and Towers before falling to cross-town rival Johnson-Gainesville in the quarterfinals.

Personal
◊ Born March 28, 1990, Brittney is the daughter of Terry and Celeste Crews.
◊ Major: Biology
