TALE OF THE TAPE

NCAA Tournament

  1. ACC Basketball Tournament: Maryland v Duke Memphis v Michigan State
    NCAA Tournament Round Of 16: #2 Duke Vs. #3 Michigan State

    With four national championships, 11 Final Fours, two Olympic gold medals and a court named after him, Coach K’s legacy is as rock solid as a bomb shelter beneath the Pentagon.

  2. North Carolina v Kansas VCU v Michigan
    NCAA Tournament Round Of 16: #1 Kansas Vs. #4 Michigan

    Bill Self always has Jayhawks fans rocking and chalking, absolutely annihilating Big 12 competition every year, but success hasn’t come as easy in the tournaments. Despite any criticism, nobody can ever take away his 2008 national title.

  3. LEXINGTON, KY - MARCH 23: Peyton Siva #3 of the Louisville Cardinals gestures as he walks off the court after defeating the Colorado State Rams during the third round of the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at Rupp Arena on March 23, 2013 in Lexington, Kentucky.

    Rick Pitino’s long and storied career is well documented, and if Louisville’s trip to the Final Four last year is any indication, the guy has still got it. In this business, there’s scarcely anyone better.

  4. DAYTON, OH - MARCH 24: LaQuinton Ross #10 and Shannon Scott #3 of the Ohio State Buckeyes celebrate after a play against the Iowa State Cyclones in the second half during the third round of the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at UD Arena on March 24, 2013 in Dayton, Ohio.

    Thad Matta is one of the more under-appreciated college coaches in Division I. Not only has he been to two Final Fours, but he has the Buckeyes in contention every year. The one year he missed the tourney? They won the NIT.

  5. Temple v Indiana California v Syracuse
    NCAA Tournament Round Of 16: #1 Indiana Vs. #4 Syracuse

    Tom Crean has done a sensational job restoring the Hoosier program from the gutters of Kelvin Sampson, and he made a Final Four with Dwyane Wade and Marquette. This year looks to be his coming-out party.

  6. ACC Basketball Tournament: Maryland v Duke Albany Great Danes v Connecticut Huskies
    NCAA Tournament First Round: #2 Duke Vs. #15 Albany

    The Blue Devils suffered a tough loss in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament, but they’re still led by Coach K who has 79 wins all-time in the tourney and has made 11 Final Fours.
