MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Head men's basketball coach Keno Davis has continued to build his first Central Michigan roster with the addition of Normal (Ill.) Community West wing Austin Stewart.

The program's career leader in points (1,733) and steals (235) earned three all-Big 12 Conference honors and a pair of nods to the Pantagraph All-Area Team.

"We are fortunate to add Austin to our team," said Davis. "His hard work in the classroom and on the court will give him an opportunity to excel at CMU. Austin also has the size and athletic ability which will give us an added dimension to our roster."

A 6-foot-6, 185-pound wing, Stewart helped transform the Wildcats from a .500 team his freshman season into a program with a 22-8 record his senior year. He averaged 18.3 points and 5.5 rebounds last season en route to a conference title and a regional championship in the IHSA state playoffs.

In the last two weeks, Davis has added freshmen guards Derrick Richardson (6-3, 180 pounds) and Stewart, and Division I transfer guard Kyle Randall (5-11, 170 pounds).
