    Rick Pitino has been here before, after making his 7th Final Four appearance, he’s now in his third go-round in the title game. He’s got plenty of experience on the big stage and he has the Cardinals playing high level basketball at the right time.

  3. Big East Basketball Tournament - Syracuse v Louisville NCAA Basketball Tournament - Montana v Wisconsin
    NCAA Tournament First Round: #4 Syracuse Vs. #13 Montana

    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.

    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.

  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.
