Butler moved quickly to replace Brad Stevens: 

"Miller was on the fast track a few seasons ago when he made the surprising decision to resign from Ohio State after six seasons with Thad Matta. It came shortly after another highly regarded assistant, Pat Kelsey, left Xavier for a job outside of college basketball. Kelsey returned a season ago when he was hired as the head coach at Winthrop, and Miller got back in last season as special assistant to Illinois head coach John Groce and was brought back to Butler a few months ago by Stevens as an assistant."

surfing through some very early season college games and stopped for a while to watch Chris Mullen's first game as HC of St Johns and noticed Lou Carnesseca in the stands- took me back to the 80s. BTW, SJ barely survived Wagner

Nova is champ . The Big East has re-grouped nicely. They have four other teams at the Dance this season :Xavier, Butler , Providence , & Seton Hall

What a game. What a finish. Happy for Nova. Happy UNC didn't win. Great end to the tournament. Our newsroom exploded twice in a matter of a minute

scurds-  I thought about taking Nova into the F4, but they've rarely won more  than game at the Dance in the last ten years.

I used to hate the Big East. Now that they've gone exclusively Catholic and more national, I love them.

ark- Big East used to have six foul rule which messed them up during March Madness when the rest of the NCAA was using the five foul rule.

I vaguely remember that. What should really happen is that you get an extra foul in OT.
