Stewart averaged 17 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 2.1 blocked shots per game. He was named First Team All Pac-12. ...He flirted with shooting the three-ball by taking a modest 20 attempts in 2019-20. He made 5. (25% 3-pt. FG). Stewart had more than two turnovers for every one assist. ...His 77% FT shooting indicates that he does have touch on his shot which is quite a contrast to his bruising style of play. He finished ninth in Pac-12 boxscore plus/minus. ...Stewart's defensive rating was just barely better than the Washington team DEFRTG. That is a concern. Most good BIGs have significantly better DEFRTGs than their team. ...Played in the 2019 Jordan Brand Classic and McDonald's All-America games …We anticipate Stewart being taken near the end of the first round. Stewart was impressive offensively in the games we watched.
