Stevens Among The Best With Wooden And Krzyzewski
Brad Stevens is fast becoming a household name in college basketball. Stevens’ Butler Bulldogs will play UConn tonight in Houston for the NCAA basketball championship.
This is the second staright year in the big game for Stevens and Butler only barely losing to Duke last year for the title. Stevens is only 34 years old, but is proving himself as one of college basketball’s elite coaches. Stevens is 11-3 overall in the NCAA tournament and his winning percentage tops all active coaches and he is not far behind UCLA’s John Wooden. In his four years as a Division 1 head coach, he has won 117 games which is second to no one. According to Fox Sports, Stevens is a stickler for the rules and has his compliance director, Beth Goetz on speed dial. Stevens is not the prototype of today’s big time college basketball coach, but he is for real and will likely be around for a long time. IU did not make the tournament this year, but the state of Indiana can very proud of those Bulldogs from Butler.
