MSBL Player of the Week: Shaun Stewart (Mandurah Magic)


THE Round Seven Men’s SBL Player of the Week has been awarded to Shaun Stewart of the Mandurah Magic.

Heading into Round Seven the Mandurah Magic were 1-6, and one of the toughest assignments – a road trip to Geraldton – lay ahead. On paper, this should have been an easy win for the Buccaneers at home: enter Shaun Stewart.

Stewart proved his elite calibre in the hostile Active West Stadium, as he went off for 32 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. In a rounded performance, Stewart went 5-5 from beyond the arc, while adding 5 steals and a block on the defensive end.

In addition to going 100% from 3-point land, he was flawless from the free-throw line and efficiently went about his scoring on 57% shooting.

Playing in all but 1:31 minutes of the Magic’s 94-85 win, Stewart took the team on his shoulders to upset the second placed Geraldton squad. Wins against the Eagles and Giants over the next fortnight should see the Magic make a push into the Top 8.
