Last year, Jackie averaged 7.1 points and 4.7 rebounds and had 64 assist, 44 steals and six blocked shorts. She scored in double figures in nine games and recorded five or more rebounds in 17. Lee was third on the team in rebounding and second in assists—not bad for a forward! She also moved out beyond the arc and ranked eighth in the Western Athletic Conference in three-point percentage. The Broncos won the regular season and conference championships (24-8, 12 4 in the WAC) and advanced to the NCAA Championships for only the second time in school history.
In 2005-06, Lee averaged 12.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game and had 83 assists, 47 steals and 18 blocks. She scored in double figures in 20 games, leading the team in scoring 11 times and in rebounds eight times. Jackie was 10th in the WAC in both rebounding and assists, 13th in scoring and fifth in three-pointers per game. She scored her career high against Louisiana Tech with 22.

Amanda had a career high of nine rebounds against UNLV. She was one of the main reasons Boise State was able to capture the WAC Tournament with stellar rebounding performances of seven in both games and a season-high eight points in the WAC Championship against host New Mexico State. While the Bronco team was experiencing a dismal shooting night, Stewart came in and practically carried the team on her back to the championship. Simply put, the Broncos would not have won the WAC Championship or appeared in the NCAA Tournament without her.
As a sophomore, Stewart played in 25 games, averaging 1.6 points and 1.4 rebounds. She shot 37.5 percent from the floor and 83.3 percent from the free-throw line and had six assists, six steals and four blocks.
Following an injury to the team's starting center, Amanda agreed to come off her redshirt year as a freshman and played in nine games including two starts. She averaged 3.0 points and 3.1 rebounds and also had three assists, three steals and two blocked shots.
