I’ve signed on to write a book about the history of Butler’s Hinkle Fieldhouse, and I’m interested in getting an original piece of art to use in the book. The details are in the craigslist ad, where you can contact me if you’re interested in talking about it.

  3. Indianapolis Update

    I now have an ambitious plan. I’m seeing Wizards at Pacers on Friday Jan. 10, IUPUI on Saturday afternoon, and Butler in the evening. Basketball Passport, I’m finally getting on the board for this season.

  4. I’m headed to Indianapolis to visit beloved Hinkle Fieldhouse on January 11, when Georgetown comes to Butler. If any of you will be there, let me know via the ask box and we can take goofy cell phone pictures together.

  10. In the 8/26 Sports Illustrated, Tim Layden traces the rise of Brad Stevens:
"In the Bulldogs’ 2010 Sweet 16 win over Syracuse, Stevens designed an out-of-bounds play on the fly where four players ran in around the offensive circle and then simply cut wherever they pleased when the referee handed off the ball; Howard slipped loose for a layup. They were never better than on the final possession of the 2010 national championship game, when they ran a slick sequence off a missed Duke free throw, leading to Hayward’s half-court near-miss, all without the benefit of a timeout."
There’s lots of great backstory in here, but I liked hearing about Stevens’ tactical brilliance the most.
