Highlights:

John Calipari leads Kentucky to the tournament championship, moving him up to .745, good for third 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 seventh 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, remaining in ninth place.
Thad Matta takes Ohio State to the Final Four for the second time, improving his record to .667, moving him up from fifteenth to a tie with Steve Fisher for eleventh 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.
For the first time ever, two second seeds (Missouri and Duke) fall in the first round.  Duke's loss drops Mike Krzyzewski to .767, but it's still enough for first place.
Kansas State wins one and loses one, giving Frank Martin enough games to debut on the list at .600 with a 6-4 record.  In four of the five years Martin has coached, he has taken Kansas State to the NCAA tournament (in 2009 they went to the NIT), getting all the way to the Elite Eight in 2010.
Steve Alford debuts on the list after taking New Mexico to the third round (as what used to be called the second round is called now - since the play-in games are called the first round.....).  Alford has also taken SW Missouri State and Iowa to the dance, his best finish being the Sweet 16 with SW Missouri State in 1999.
BYU wins one of the new play-in games as a 14 seed (now called the first round) but loses in the second (or as it used to be called, the first...) round, allowing Dave Rose to debut on the list at 4-6.  BYU has played in the NCAA tournament in all but Rose's first year as coach, when they played in the NIT.
