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.
"On Saturday afternoon, the current Bulldogs will board a plane for an 18-hour flight to Australia, where new coach Brandon Miller and his team will get a head start on the coming season. They’ll spent 11 days overseas and play four exhibition games beginning Tuesday."
