Butler coach Brad Stevens loves an underdog, whether it’s his team back in the Final Four or Connecticut making an unprecedented five-games-in-five-nights run through the Big East tournament.
When it’s win or go home, nobody’s better than Kemba and the kids.
Nobody will dispute that they are great coaches, and the latest evidence lies in the teams they guided to this year’s Final Four. Nobody will argue that John Calipari and Jim Calhoun are saints, either.
Kemba Walker had 18 points, a career-high 12 assists and eight rebounds, and No. 3 seed Connecticut cruised past Bucknell 81-52 Thursday night to earn coach Jim Calhoun his 850th career victory.
