    Alex is a great ambassador for Butler University. All the kids are, but Alex's story is so great. Coming in as a walk-on and having the career that he's worked so hard to create for himself.

    He deserves every accolade that's sent his way. We wouldn't be where we are this season if it were not for his leadership.

    I noticed the similarities last year. They both play with the same intensity. Barlow is going to be successful in life.

    I was watching the Belmont @ EKU game on ESPNU last night and saw that for something like that last 15 years, Butler is second only to Belmont for Academic All Americans in that stretch, I think it was Belmont 12, Butler 9, then Duke and Florida with 6.

    Yeah, I just realized that I jumped the gun on that. He has only been nominated for Academic All-American so far.

    Barlow needs two steals tonight to tie the Butler single-season record.

    No problem. He's still got 5 more games to get there.

    So, now that Nored has left the Celtics for NKU, is it just me or does it feel inevitable that Barlow will end up taking Nored's old job with the Celtics? Seems like a perfect fit.

    Alex was in Boston a couple of weeks back.

    Hate to see him go the NBA route. That's just me.

    Rumor he has taken a job with the Celtic organization.

    Yeah, that's about as unforeseeable as Han shooting first.

    For not being a Butler alum, I will always have a soft spot for Stevens. He's a genuinely good dude that looks out for his peeps. Barlow is going to be a great college coach one day and I hope he finds his way back to Butler sooner or later.

    Maybe there was more action behind the scenes or maybe this was a foregone conclusion, but I don't understand why more wasn't done to keep this dude around. I don't claim to be a basketball savant, but it's pretty clear to me that Alex has a bright future in coaching. I look around and see other young, former PG's (Greg Paulus, Jon Scheyer, etc.) commanding assistant coaching positions at big time programs and I have to think someone is going to (and it appears already did) give him a chance. Hopefully he gets a few years under his belt in the d league or working under Brad and comes back to Butler. Hope we didn't miss out on something.

    I think someone mentioned it elsewhere, but it's always important to get experience at other places and different philosophies. It's possible that they could have found a spot for him, grad assistant or whatnot, but when the Celtics come calling...

    I also think that once Terry and the others start getting their deserved looks for head coaching gigs, then you'll see some of these kids come back to roost.
