1. 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.

  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. ACC Basketball Tournament: Maryland v Duke Memphis v Michigan State

    NCAA Tournament Round Of 16: #1 Louisville Vs. #12 Oregon

    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.

  5. Iowa State v Ohio State Harvard v Arizona
    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.

    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.
