Brad Stevens has hops

Brad Stevens not only looks like a college kid, he acts like one kid.

You see, Emerson Kampen -- a walk-on that's played all of 12 minutes this season -- has started a tradition with Gordon Hayward and Shelvin Mack. After Hayward and Mack are introduced before, they do a flying-chest bump with Kampen. Pretty standard.

Well, apparently Stevens took a liking to this tradition.

"Coach just came into the locker room after the [Murray State] game and started pointing at me," Kampen says. "So he jumped up and we did it. We did it again after the Syracuse game."

In the waning minutes against Kansas State, Stevens walked down the bench and told Kampen that if Butler won, they would be celebrating in front of everyone.

Well, Butler one.

And the rest is ... on youtube (:35 mark):
