Butler University’s 75-58 men’s basketball victory last night over Delaware was one for the record books for coach Brad Stevens. The Indianapolis Star‘s David Woods reports, “Stevens raised his record to 138-39 to break the NCAA record for most victories in the first five seasons as a head coach. The mark was previously held by North Carolina State’s Everett Case, who was 137-29 from 1946-51.”

As a result of the win, Butler (21-14) will play Penn (20-12) in a quarterfinal Monday at the Palestra in Philadelphia.


A 1999 graduate of DePauw University, Brad Stevens led the Bulldogs to the championship game of the NCAA tournament in each of the two previous years.  An economics major and Management Fellow at DePauw, where he played basketball for coach Bill Fenlon, Stevens was named Butler’s head coach on April 5, 2007.

On April 13, 2010, Stevens returned to his alma mater to deliver the Robert C. McDermond Lecture.
