Norm Stewart


Norm Stewart grew up around the small farming community of Shelbyville, Missouri. One of Missouri’s best-known sports heroes, Stewart made his impact on the court, on the field, and on the bench. He first made his name as a player at Mizzou, then in the NBA, and to most basketball fans, as the coach for the University of Missouri. Inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 2000, his legacy is cemented in the record books with eight conference championships, six post-season titles, and many more achievements and awards.
