Through five games this season guard Hikeem Stewart didn’t see much playing time at Washington, playing a total of 22 minutes with five of his six shot attempts and all five points scored coming in one game (a win over Eastern Washington). With the trio of Andrew Andrews, C.J. Wilcox and Nigel Williams-Goss in line to receive the majority of the backcourt minutes Stewart announced his decision to transfer in late November.
On Thursday it was learned that Stewart will finish his playing career at Division II Kentucky Wesleyan, with the school announcing his arrival via press release. Stewart will practice with the team for the remainder of this season with an eye towards being a key contributor at both guard positions in 2014-15.
“We are fortunate to add a quality student-athlete like Hikeem to our team,” Kentucky Wesleyan head coach Happy Osborne said. “He does a lot of things very well due to his versatility and athletic ability at both ends of the court.
“Hikeem will play both the point and shooting guard positions. He passes the ball with precision and scores from anywhere. His defensive abilities create tremendous havoc for the opponent.”
Outside of the Andrews/Wilcox/Williams-Goss trio the only Washington guard currently averaging double digit minutes is freshman Darin Johnson, who’s played just over 18 minutes per game and is scoring 7.2 points per contest. 11-7 overall, the Huskies will look to move to 4-2 in Pac-12 play Saturday when they visit Stanford.
