"At least his newfound fame gives him little time to agonize. Since Butler came within a missed buzzer-beater of winning the NCAA championship, Stevens has gone through a whirlwind two months of celebrity. Speaking engagements. Public appearances. Autograph requests," reports Paul J. Weber.

The Bulldogs came within an eyelash of victory in the thrilling national championship contest, notes AP, and "Stevens has been a star since."
