Stevo Guerrier Dies at 71
Quincy Guerrier stands out immediately with his physically mature appearance. On a recent December morning at Thetford Mines, he could be found wearing a tank top and shorts over tights while practicing his shot in an empty gym.
Underwood enjoys players who take aggressive shots and Guerrier is certainly one of those players. Furthermore, his presence gives Illinois an insurance policy should Coleman Hawkins decide to depart the frontcourt.
Early Life and Education
At seven, Guerrier was abandoned at an orphanage in Haiti, a country infamous for poverty, crime and natural disasters. His biological parents left without ever returning.
Guerrier first started playing basketball at his local rec center and carried one around with him whenever possible; even to brush his teeth or play video games. Additionally, he participated in soccer and street hockey leagues.
Guerrier was in an isolated Quebec town that kept him off of most talent evaluators’ radar, according to Autry. Autry noticed Guerrier’s aggressiveness, ability to hunt his shot, and consistent effort which convinced him to offer him a spot on his squad.
Guerrier is a member of both Old Dauphin Way Historic District and Oakleigh Venture Revolving Fund as well as Restore Mobile project’s past treasurer. He enjoys biking, exercising and reading and both he and his wife attend Covenant Presbyterian Church together.
Guerrier stands out immediately with his maturity. At 6-foot-7 and 220 pounds, his physique looks rugged enough for pro league competition. An adept shooter who can punish smaller defenders in the post before distancing them with his dribble.
Underwood’s system at Illinois is ideal for him as he is adept at playing both four and small-ball five, as he adds good size, physicality and an effective three-point shot to their roster.
