UConn's Stewart honored by USBWA

UConn sophomore forward Breanna Stewart was named the United States Basketball Writers Association national player of the week after averaging 26.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in wins over Duke and California.

Stewart, who has been UConn's leading scorer in six of the first 12 games this season, is averaging a team-leading 19.3 points per game and tops the team with 35 blocked shot and she is second on the Huskies in rebounding (7.7 per game), tied for second with 14 3-pointers.

Stewart is one of 17 Division I players to reach double digits in points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocked shots and 3-pointers. Stewart and Northern Kentucky's Melody Doss are the only Division I players with at least 10 points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks and 3-pointers while shooting at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3-point range and 80 percent from the free-throw line.
