Count Dr. Phillips coach Anthony Jones among the believers, rating her ahead of Florida high school All-Americans Alexis Prince, bound for Baylor, and Ronni Williams.
“Her presence on the court is just phenomenal. Nothing we could do,” Jones said. “With her presence, her role-players were able to stretch out their zone and it affected our offense. You go inside, you are running right into her. They are hard to score against.
“I told my players that this is probably one of the most disciplined teams that we will ever face. There is no answer for that girl. She is that good. We lost to a better team. She’s a great outside shooter. She has nice touch. No flaw in her game. If I have to pull out a flaw, maybe that is she goes too hard.”
Dr. Phillips put bodies on Stewart every time she entered the low post, knocking her down on drives to the basket several times. Stewart hit her head on the floor after one drive, but she did not leave the game and said later she did not even have a headache.
“I have a hard head, I guess,” she said.
If you are going to have a fault, probably not a bad one to have.
