TALE OF THE TAPE

NCAA Tournament

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    NCAA Tournament First Round: #8 UNC Vs. #9 Villanova

    Roy Williams has led Kansas and North Carolina teams to seven Final Fours and won two NCAA championships. His résumé is as strong as any coach in college basketball today.

    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.

  6. 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.
