Butler men’s basketball coach Brad Stevens brings his No. 18 Bulldogs to Nashville for a 7 p.m. tip Saturday against Vanderbilt on ESPNU. Stevens, 36, enjoyed unprecedented success in his first five seasons as Butler’s coach by reaching consecutive NCAA Championship Games in 2010 and 2011. He is off to a solid start in year six after taking down top-ranked Indiana two weeks ago. Stevens is making his first appearance in Memorial Gym this weekend and spoke about that, as well as matching up with Kevin Stallings’ Commodores. Stallings also offered his thoughts on what may be Vanderbilt’s toughest opponent to date this season.
