The banners hanging from Hinkle Fieldhouse's dusty rafters are a constant reminder of achievement at Butler.
Rick Barnes hadn't even seen Kevin Durant play when Texas offered the high school sophomore a scholarship. The offer actually came from an excited assistant coach.
Butler assistant head coach Matthew Graves estimates the Bulldogs' coaching staff is averaging 4-5 hours of sleep during the NCAA tournament, skipping a good night's rest to pore over game film.
Graves said he views the first campus visit _ which offers the most time for Stevens to visit with a prospect _ as critical.
"I think the head coach is probably the final closer but it still goes back to building relationships and feeling comfortable," Graves said. "And the assistant has as much responsibility for that as the head coach in closing the deal and to make the recruit feel as comfortable as he can."
