A step ahead: Stevens’ cool gives Butler edge

HOUSTON (AP) — Butler and coach Brad Stevens had just shaken loose from Virginia Commonwealth, 70-62, Saturday night and booked a spot in the national championship for a second straight season. But even as stars Matt Howard and Shelvin Mack tried to keep their emotions under wraps explaining how the Bulldogs had accomplished something no mid-major school had done since UNLV’s high-flying Runnin’ Rebels in 1990-91, Stevens sat off to one side, already scribbling notes for the next game.

That comes Monday night against Connecticut, which beat Kentucky in the second semifinal Saturday night.

“We said coming into the game that it was going to be a possession game and something where we had to be great with the ball,” he said, “which I thought we were.”
