2010-11 Outlook Bulldogs Picked To Repeat Butler received all 48 first place votes and was picked as the unanimous favorite to win the 2010-11 Horizon League men’s basketball title in the annual preseason poll of league coaches, media and sports information directors. It was the second straight year that the Bulldogs were tabbed as the league favorite and the third time in four seasons. 2010-11 Horizon League Poll Team (First Place Votes) Points 1.

Junior Shelvin Mack (1) earned first team All-Horizon League honors and was named to the All-Tournament Team at the Final Four in 2009-10. He finished the season as Butler’s second-leading scorer.

Stevens has eight other letterwinners back from last year’s club, including a pair of senior guards who played in every game in 2009-10. He also has three newcomers, who will compete with the returnees for playing time. “We have a bunch of guys who can fill roles, and we’re trying to figure out what our best combinations will be,” noted Butler’s fourth-year coach. “I think we’re on the right track, but I think we’ll continue to be a work in progress.” Seniors Zach Hahn and Shawn Vanzant, both of whom played in all 38 games last season, figure to be among the players getting early playing time for the Bulldogs. Hahn was Butler’s top scorer off the bench last season and one of the top three-point field goal shooters in the Horizon League. The 6-1, left-handed guard averaged 4.9 points in a reserve role and finished fifth in the league in threepoint field goal percentage (.414). He led Butler’s non-starters in minutes played in 2009-10. Vanzant, a starter in Butler’s first four games a year ago, developed into one of the team’s better defenders. He led Butler’s reserves in both assists and steals, while averaging 2.8 points per outing. Junior Garrett Butcher, who also had off-season surgery on both legs, and 6-11 sophomore Andrew Smith both saw playing time in the front-court for the Bulldogs a year ago, and both figure to

play prominent roles this season. Butcher, a 6-7 forward who’s played in 64 games in two seasons at Butler, saw his scoring average dip last season, after averaging 2.5 points as a freshman. Smith played in 24 games last season, including both of Butler’s games at the Final Four. Other returnees who could emerge are 6-5 seniors Grant Leiendecker and Alex Anglin, 6-9 sophomore Emerson Kampen and 6-4 sophomore Chase Stigall. Leiendecker and Stigall played in 14 contests, Anglin saw action in 11 games and Kampen played in eight last year. The returnees could be challenged by three talented newcomers, all freshmen. Joining the Bulldogs this season are Khyle Marshall, a 6-7 forward from Davie, Fla., Erik Fromm, a 6-9 forward from Bloomington, and Chrishawn Hopkins, a 6-1 guard from Indianapolis. Marshall averaged 28 points and 11 rebounds as a senior at Flanagan High School, while Fromm averaged 15.3 points and 8.5 rebounds at Bloomington South, Indiana’s top-ranked team in 2009-10. Hopkins was the fifth-leading scorer in Indiana (25.8 ppg) at Manual High School last year. Butler will be bidding for a fifth consecutive Horizon League regular season title, a fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and a sixth consecutive 20-win season. The Bulldogs’ 89 wins over the past three seasons ranks second among all teams in Division I.

Head Coach Just three years into his career as a collegiate head coach and just 10 years after leaving a business position as a marketing associate, Brad Stevens has climbed to the top of the list for best basketball coaching career starts in NCAA history. Stevens, who picked up his second consecutive Horizon League Coach of the Year award in 2009-10, has guided the Bulldogs to 89 wins in his brief career, breaking the previous threeyear NCAA Division I record of 81 wins held by Mark Few of Gonzaga and Mark Fox of Nevada. This past season, Stevens led Butler to a 33-5 overall record, the Horizon League’s first 18-0 conference mark and fourth overall unbeaten record, a fourth consecutive league regular season championship, a second Horizon League Tournament crown in three years and a national runner-up finish in the NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs were nationally-ranked for the fourth straight year, and Butler compiled a school-record, 25-game winning streak, the longest winning streak in the nation! The Butler coach, who became the third-youngest coach in NCAA history to reach the national title game, was named NABC AllDistrict 12 Coach, and he was a finalist for several additional national coaching awards. In his debut season, Stevens helped Butler become the first team in school and Horizon League history to record 30 wins!. The 30-4 Bulldogs captured the Great Alaska Shootout, won a second consecutive Wooden Tradition trophy, and wrapped up Horizon League regular season and tournament championships. Butler won a first-round NCAA Tournament game, before falling in overtime to #5 Tennessee in the second round. The Bulldogs were ranked in the “Top 25” of the A. P. and ESPN/USA Today national polls for 19 consecutive weeks, including a record three weeks in the “Top 10.” Butler set school- and league-records for regular season wins (27) and became just the second team in league history to record 16 league victories. Only three coaches in NCAA Division I history - Bill Guthridge, North Carolina (34), Bill Hodges, Indiana State (33) and Jamie Dixon, Pittsburgh (31) - posted more first-year wins than the Butler coach. And at 31, Stevens became the third-youngest Division I coach to guide his team to 30 wins - the youngest in more than half a century! In addition to becoming the first men’s basketball coach in Butler history to lead the Bulldogs to 30 wins, Stevens broke the 34-game Butler coaching record (28-6) shared by three coaches. He moved into seventh place on Butler’s all-time list for coaching

Brad Stevens victories after just one season. His second season produced perhaps an even more remarkable record! He guided a Butler team picked fifth in the Horizon League, with no seniors and just one returning starter, to 26 wins, a “Top 25” national ranking, a second consecutive Horizon League regular season championship and another trip to the NCAA Tournament. He recorded his 50th career win faster than any other coach in Butler men’s basketball history, and faster than all but four coaches in Division I history! One coach in NCAA Division I history - Bill Guthridge of North Carolina (58-14, 199899) - posted more wins in his first two seasons! Stevens was the mid-season recipient of the Hugh Durham Mid-Major Coach of the Year Award, and he was cited as the Horizon League Coach of the Year. Stevens, 34, was introduced as the new men’s basketball head coach at Butler University on April 4, 2007, just three days after his former boss, Todd Lickliter, was named head coach at the University of Iowa. Stevens became the third consecutive former Butler assistant coach to be named head coach of the Bulldogs, and he served under the previous two - Thad Matta and Lickliter. Stevens worked with Lickliter for six seasons, 2001-07. During his tenure as an assistant coach with the Bulldogs, Butler compiled a 131-61 record, won three Horizon League regular season championships and made four trips to postseason tournament play. In 2006-07, Butler compiled a 29-7 record and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs won the NIT Season Tip-Off at Madison Square Garden in New York, and the team was ranked in the “Top 25” of both the Associated Press (A.P.) and ESPN/USA Today national polls for 16 consecutive weeks. Stevens joined the Bulldogs’ staff in 2000-01 as coordinator of basketball operations, handling a variety of administrative duties. He was offered a full-time assistant coaching position by Lickliter in 2001-02. The Butler coach left a position as a marketing associate at Eli Lilly and Company in Indianapolis in June of 2000 to pursue a career in basketball coaching. He served in a volunteer capacity in Butler’s basketball office during the summer of 2000, before eventually gaining a full-time administrative position on the Bulldogs’ staff under Matta in the fall of 2000. Prior to joining the Bulldogs’ staff, Stevens served as a volunteer basketball coach at Carmel High School, working with coach Pete Smith. He further served as an assistant coach for the 17-year-old Municipal Gardens AAU team, helping the squad

Administration Barry Collier Director of Athletics Two days after entering the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame, Barry Collier was named athletic director at Butler University. Collier, the head men’s basketball coach at the University of Nebraska for six seasons, was formally introduced as Butler’s top athletic administrator by University President Dr. Bobby Fong at a press conference on campus on August 1, 2006. The announcement returned Collier to Butler for the second time since he graduated from the north side Indianapolis school in 1976. He served as the Butler men’s basketball coach for 11 seasons, 1989-2000, and compiled the second-highest win total in school history before leaving for the position at Nebraska. Butler had nine winning seasons during Collier’s 11 years, and the Bulldogs made six postseason tournament appearances. In six seasons at Nebraska, Collier led the Huskers to an 89-91 record and two trips to the National Invitation Tournament. His last three squads produced a 51-41 (.554) mark and both of the school’s postseason tournament bids. Collier’s teams averaged 11 wins at home per season during his six years, and his 200304 squad posted the second-highest win total in Devaney Center history with 15 victories. During Collier’s tenure in Lincoln, the Huskers saw an unprecedented rise in academic standing. Nebraska had a league-leading 15 first-team academic All-Big 12 selections between 2003 and 2006, including two academic all-district performers in 2006. In addition, 16 of the 20 Huskers who completed their senior seasons under Collier earned their college diplomas, and one is on pace to earn his degree. Collier, 55, began his head-coaching career at Butler in 1989. In 11 seasons, he guided the Bulldogs to a 196-132 record, including a school-record five 20-win seasons. Prior to his arrival, Butler had just two 20-win seasons in 91 years of intercollegiate basketball. In his last four seasons at Butler, Collier guided the Bulldogs to a 90-39 record and four straight postseason tournament appearances. His 196 career wins remain the second-highest total in Butler history.

The former Butler basketball Most Valuable Player led the Bulldogs to the school’s first Midwestern Collegiate Conference (now Horizon League) regular season men’s basketball championship in 1996-97 and to back-to-back conference tournament titles in 1997 and 1998. He added another regular season title and a third tournament crown in 1999-2000, his final season at Butler. His 11-year conference record was 93-58 (.616) with seven first or second place regular season finishes. He was named league Coach of the Year in 1991, 1997, 1999 and 2000. Three of Collier’s Butler teams advanced to the NCAA Tournament and three others reached the NIT. During his 11 seasons as head coach at Butler, Collier had two players earn conference Player of the Year honors. He had one player named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America team and had one player earn a prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. Of the 37 players who completed their senior season under him, 36 earned their degree. Collier prepared for his step into the head coaching ranks by serving as an assistant coach at five different schools over a 13-year period. He began his coaching career at Rose Hulman Institute in 1976-77, and then followed with assistant coaching stops at Seattle Central Community College (1977-78), the University of Idaho (1978-83), the University of Oregon (1983-86) and Stanford University (1986-89). During his three seasons at Stanford under head coach Mike Montgomery, he helped lead the Cardinal to berths in the 1988 NIT and the 1989 NCAA Tournament. When Butler selected Collier as men’s basketball coach in 1989, it marked a homecoming for the former Bulldog. He first came to Butler as a student-athlete in 1974, following two years at Miami-Dade Community College. He played basketball under coach George Theofanis for two seasons at Butler, and he was named a team captain and co-MVP in 1975-76. As a senior, he averaged 15.2 points and a teamhigh 7.5 rebounds while earning first team all-conference recognition in the Indiana Collegiate Conference. Collier attended Miami Palmetto High School in Miami, Fla., and later received an Associate of Arts degree from Miami-Dade. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Butler in 1976 and a Master of Science degree from Indiana State University in 1977. He was a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches for 29 years, and he was named to the NABC Board of Directors in 2002. Collier and his wife, Annette, are parents of three sons, Casey, Brady and Clay. Casey graduated from Nebraska in 2005, and completed his medical degree at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2009. Brady graduated from Nebraska in 2008 and Clay is currently completing his undergraduate degree at Butler.
