A power forward, Stevenson played for the University of Kentucky men's basketball team. In his first regular season collegiate game on November 15, 2006, Perry blocked seven shots against Miami (OH) and was given the nickname "Swat" for his ability to block shots.
Stevenson's career-highs include 18 points, 14 rebounds, 7 blocks, 5 steals and 2 assists, respectively (all achieved during his sophomore season). Stevenson saw more playing time after Wildcat star freshman Patrick Patterson suffered an ankle injury before the rematch with Tennessee. Stevenson picked up three of those career highs during that period of time. His sophomore season, he averaged 5.9 points per game and 5.1 rebounds per game. Stevenson moved into the starting rotation for the Kentucky Wildcats after their trip to the 2008 NCAA Tournament. He ranks fifth on UK's all-time blocked shots list with 160.
