Highlights:

National Champs: Kentucky John Calipari
Second place: Kansas Bill Self
Third place(tied): Ohio State Thad Matta
Third place(tied): Louisville Rick Pitino

John Calipari leads Kentucky to the tournament championship, moving him up to .745, good for fifth place.  This is Calipari's first championship, though he has been to the Final Four four times - last year with Kentucky, in 2008 with Memphis and in 1996 with UMass.  Unfortunately, the NCAA "vacated" both the UMass and Memphis Final Four appearances so that Calipari's tournament record officially is only 29-11 which would put him at .725 in eighth place just .0005 behind Tom Izzo.
Bill Self returns to the championship game for the first time since winning it all in 2008 and again finds John Calipari in his way. Self loses the coaching rematch this time and settles for second place, but improves his record to .717, jumping over Dean Smith into tenth place.
Thad Matta takes Ohio State to the Final Four for the second time, improving his record to .667, moving him up from twenty-fifth to a tie with Steve Fisher and Rollie Massimino for seventeenth place.  Fisher's team, San Diego State, lost their only game in the second round.
Rick Pitino makes the Final Four for the sixth time, falling to Kentucky, the school he left in 1997 to coach the Boston Celtics.  His percentage rises from .717 to .724, but he remains in eighth place.
