Hoiberg on Butler's coach...Howlin' T-Wolf on this weekend's losses...

From Sid Hartman:

Fred Hoiberg, the Timberwolves assistant general manager, is a big booster of 33-year-old Butler coach Brad Stevens, whom Hoiberg watched last week and who now has the Bulldogs in the national championship game against Duke.

"I actually was out in Salt Lake City when Butler beat Syracuse in the regional semifinal and then they went on to beat Kansas State in the final to make it into the Final Four," said Hoiberg, who has been scouting potential Wolves draft choices.

"I can't tell you how great of a job Stevens has done with that team. To beat [Syracuse's] Jim Boeheim, a Hall of Fame coach, and then to go and beat Frank Martin's [Kansas State] team, who played as hard as any team in the country. Then beat [Michigan State coach] Tom Izzo, another guy that's been to the Final Four numerous times, in another close game. He's just done a masterful job with that Butler team.
