Cubs to honor Butler coach Stevens
CHICAGO -- Brad Stevens had better start warming up his arm -- and his vocal chords.
The 33-year-old Stevens will also lead fans in singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley Field.
Stevens led the Bulldogs to a 33-5 record and their first Final Four this season. Butler beat Michigan State in the semifinals before losing 61-59 to Duke in the national championship game.
The Horizon League school rewarded Stevens with a new 12-year contract. He has a record of 89-15 and more wins after three seasons than any other men's basketball coach in NCAA history.
