TALE OF THE TAPE

Sports

  1. 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.

    NCAA Tournament Round Of 16: #2 Ohio State Vs. #6 Arizona

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    This one is absolutely no contest. Jim Boeheim has reached three Final Fours and won a national championship (2003). He will bring his top-of-the-line acumen to the ACC next year, but for now, it’s to the big dance on behalf of the Big East.

  5. Oregon v UCLA - Pac-12 Championship Big Ten Basketball Tournament - First Round
    NCAA Tournament First Round: #6 UCLA Vs. #11 Minnesota

    Ben Howland has a distinguished career, highlighted by three trips to the Final Four, but his status is up in the air at UCLA, as athletic director Dan Guerrero has given him no public assurances.

  6. Big East Basketball Tournament - Notre Dame v Louisville NCAA Basketball Tournament - Iowa State v Kentucky
    NCAA Tournament First Round: #7 Notre Dame Vs. #10 Iowa State

    Mike Brey has been the savior of Notre Dame hoops ever since he jumped on board in 2000, guiding the Irish to the tourney in six of the past seven seasons.
