A day after picking up big conference victories, Duke and Syracuse got some suboptimal news. Isaiah Stewart, a 5-star center and top-10 player in the 2019 class, has committed to Washington — over Duke and Syracuse.

Washington is coached, of course, by Mike Hopkins, a former Syracuse point guard and assistant coach, who lands Stewart over his former mentor, Jim Boeheim.
Isaiah Stewart and Mike Hopkins have had a longstanding relationship. Probably since Isaiah was 14.
He's a terrific kid, a great talent. Wish him the best at Washington.
