Boston Celtics steathily hire Brad Stevens away from Butler

The lure of big time college basketball programs wasn’t enough for Brad Stevens to leave his head coaching duties at Butler. For the past few seasons, every time a big job opened up, he resisted.

UNLIKELY HERO

Walk-on helps Butler beat Indiana

Check out the video. Butler sophomore walk-on Alex Barlow hit the game-winning shot as the unranked Bulldogs handed Indiana its first loss of the season, 88-86 in overtime. It was a floater.
