Painful end for Rainier Beach grad Stewart

On what turned out to be a slow news day at the Final Four, the last Washington player left standing in the NCAA Tournament made the biggest news when he crumpled to the floor.

In the final minutes of Kansas’ practice Friday, Rainier Beach graduate Rodrick Stewart attempted an acrobatic dunk, and then slipped on a wet spot as he came down to the ground. Stewart fell to the floor, pointing to his right knee on the ground.

I definitely think Stewart’s the kind of player who can play overseas, so we’ll see how this injury affects his future. For Kansas, though, it means they’ll miss a guy who averages more than 11 minutes per game, valuable reserve work. We’ll see how much that changes the Jayhawks today at 5:45 p.m., when they play North Carolina.

Either way, it must be hard to come that close to playing in the Final Four. Even this Missouri grad, taught to hate all things Jayhawk, extends his sympathy.

Morning stars

1. Adrian Sampson, Skyline, baseball. Sampson struck out five in a no-hitter against Bellevue, improving his record to 3-0.

2. Shelby Klein, Mount Rainier, softball. Went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in the Rams’ 10-4 win against Tyee.

3. Xan Nixon, Roosevelt, boys soccer. Nixon, who also had an assist, scored the winning goal in the Riders’ 2-1 win with just five minutes left.
