Stewart Gets BU Release

March 19, 2012 Updated Mar 19, 2012 at 2:59 PM CDT

Bradley freshman Donivine Stewart (Peoria, Ill./Limestone H.S.) has been granted his release from the Braves men’s basketball program and plans to transfer to another institution following the completion of the spring semester, first-year head coach Geno Ford announced Wednesday morning.

“Donivine is a tremendous young man and he has worked hard on the basketball court and in the classroom all year,” said Ford. “He would like the opportunity for more playing time and we wish him the best of luck as he moves forward.”

A 5-foot-11 guard, Stewart appeared in 11 of Bradley’s 32 games, scoring four points, grabbing four rebounds and dishing out three assists in his 52 minutes. A health science major, he was one of nine men’s basketball players to earn a spot on the Bradley Athletic Director’s Honor Roll during the 2011 Fall term for posting a minimum 3.0 semester grade point average.

Stewart becomes the second Bradley men’s basketball player to request his release this spring, following freshman forward Devon Hodges (Plainfield, Ill.), who was granted his release March 6.
