UConn's Stewart, Stokes still getting acclimated to each other

While I was working on a feature on UConn senior forward/center Kiah Stokes I thought one of the most intriguing comments was made by teammate Breanna Stewart who said she wasn't on the court very often with Stokes last season.

Not that I ever doubt anything Stewart has to say but I decided to do some checking into the matter and the numbers back up what Stewart had to say.

The Boston University game was the only time when Stokes and Stewart were on the court longer than Stewart and Stefanie Dolson were playing together and 30 times during the season Stewart and Dolson had twice as much time on the court as Stewart had with Stokes.

Stokes and Stewart played at least 10 continuous minutes together only once, against Stanford in the national semifinal while Dolson and Stewart accomplished that feat 31 times including playing all 20 minutes in a half on three occasions.

"Even during summer in pickup games we were mostly on opposite teams because of my size which makes it difficult but at practices things are going pretty well for both of us and as long as we continue to do that, I think it will be good," Stokes said.
For those wondering about the total numbers, I had Dolson/Stewart playing together for 1008 minutes and 54 seconds in 40 games, an average of 25.2 minutes per game while Stokes and Stewart shared the court for 364:35 in 39 contests, an average of 9.3 minutes per game.
