DHS alumnus makes all-state hoops team
The Louisiana Sports Writers Association chose the team.
Stewart, a 6-foot-1 junior from Destrehan and a Destrehan High School graduate, is the first Xavier player to make the men's team since Merlin Peters in 1990-91.
Stewart led the Gold Rush (22-10) with a 16.8 scoring average and set Xavier records for 3-pointers made in a season (109) and career (202).
He scored a game-high 19 points, including five 3-pointers, in Xavier's 82-79 upset March 15 of NAIA No. 3 Georgetown (Ky.) — the Gold Rush's first victory in the national tournament since 1973.
Xavier overcame an 0-4 start in the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference to earn a share of the regular-season championship with Tougaloo. Stewart and backcourt teammate Shaun Dumas were selected to the All-GCAC team.
University of New Orleans junior guard Bo McCalebb, who averaged 25 points per game and ranked sixth in NCAA Division I, is the Player of the Year.
