INDIANAPOLIS – Brad Stevens was explaining, better than I could in 20 years on this beat, why it is so difficult to capture all the components of the Butler Way. And not only during the magical runs of 2010 and 2011, but other years, too.

“It is important to write it down. It’s much more important to feel it,” he said.
You could feel it Thursday inside Hinkle Fieldhouse.
It was billed as a ceremony for inductees into the Butler Athletics Hall of Fame, featuring two teams, college basketball’s back-to-back runners-up.
