Butler win sparks Brad Stevens' first tweet in 18 months

Yesterday the Butler Bulldogs, a No. 6 seed in the NCAA tournament, knocked off 11th seeded Texas 56-48.  It was the Bulldogs' first tournament win since Brad Stevens left Butler to coach the Celtics in the summer of 2013.

Stevens is clearly still a fan of his old team, as their victory prompted him to send out a tweet for the first time in 18 months:
