Feb. 11, 2013
USC junior guard/forward Ari Stewart suffered a fractured left thumb in the game vs. Washington on Feb. 10 at the Galen Center and is expected to miss at least three weeks of action, it was announced today by interim head coach Bob Cantu.
Stewart has averaged 3.6 points and 1.9 rebounds in 16 games this season for the Trojans, including an average of 4.4 points and 3.0 rebounds in Pac-12 games. Stewart has worked his way into the rotation since Cantu took over as interim head coach on Jan. 14, scoring 31 points in the last seven games, after scoring a total of 26 points in USC's first 17 games. Stewart posted a season-high 11 points in the win vs. Washington State on Jan. 7, but had no points and four rebounds before suffering the injury in the win over Washington on Feb. 10.
