Coppin State was a 15 seed and lost to Derrick Coleman's Syracuse squad 70-48 in the first round. After college, he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Washington Bullets in 1991. His last NBA season was in 1996-97 with the Seattle SuperSonics. He also played in Greece for Panellinios BC.[1]

Personal

At 4:30 AM on January 8, 1994, Stewart was shot and stabbed during a break-in at his Baltimore County home.[2] He was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment.[2] Neither injury was fatal nor permanently damaging.[2] Police said the suspects broke in by shattering a sliding door in the back of the house.[2] They pulled Stewart from his bed, bound his hands and feet and shot him.[2] Although Stewart could not describe his assailants he asserted four men were involved.[2]

His younger brother Stephen was an assistant basketball coach at the University of Delaware in 2006.[1]
