Highlights:

John Calipari takes his eighth seeded Kentucky team to the championship game before losing to Connecticut, a seventh seed.  The combined seeds for the championship game, 15, is the highest ever, that is, since 1979 when seeding started.  The previous record was set in 2011 when 3 seed Connecticut beat 8 seed Butler.  Calipari moves up to number three on the list, though if you take away all of the games the NCAA vacated due to violations, he is only 34-12 (.739) which would put him in seventh place.  Kevin Ollie, the first year Connecticut coach, actually has the best tournament record of any coach, past or present at 6-0, beating out Everett Dean's 3-0 in his only tournament in 1942 coaching Stanford.
Bo Ryan leads Wisconsin to the Final Four, improving his record to .606 and moving him up into the top twenty.  Wisconsin has made the tournament in all of the thirteen years Ryan has coached there after taking over for Dick Bennett who took Wisconsin to the Final Four in 2000 before leaving Wisconsin early in the 2000-2001 season. Wisconsin made one other trip to the Final Four - in 1941 when they were national champions.
After three straight Elite Eight finishes, Billy Donovan takes Florida to the Final Four and moves up one spot to fifth place.  This was Donovan's fourth Final Four, including a second place finish in 2000 as well as two straight tournament wins in 2006 and 2007.
For the second time in three years Mike Krzyzewski's Duke team suffers a first round loss, dropping him into second place behind Larry Brown, whose SMU team played in the NIT Finals against Minnesota this year.  Krzyzewski has been in the number one spot since 2004 when he regained the top spot from Tom Izzo, who was number one for four years after winning the tournament in 2000.
Scott Drew leads Baylor to the Sweet Sixteen allowing him to debut on the list at .667 tied for ninth place.
