Highlights:

One year after suffering a first round loss to drop into second place, Mike Krzyzewski leads Duke to the top again, putting him once again in first place.  Last year's top spot was held by Larry Brown, whose Southern Methodist team suffers a first round loss.  Krzyzewski is now tied with John Wooden for number of Final Four appearances with 12.
A second consecutive Final Four run for Wisconsin allows Bo Ryan to move up to .641, good enough for thirteenth place on the list.  Wisconsin beats undefeated (and some thought unbeatable) Kentucky to get to the final game against Duke, the first time Wisconsin has played for the championship since they won the tournament in 1941.
John Calipari takes Kentucky to the Final Four for the fourth time in six years as the Wildcats coach, losing to tournament runnerup Wisconsin and moving up one spot to second place.  Going back two years when he coached Memphis, Calipari can boast of five Final Four appearances in eight years, a feat only exceeded by John Wooden and Mike Krzyzewski in their heydays. Note - The NCAA vacated the year that Memphis went to the Final Four.
Michigan State reaches the Final Four improving Tom Izzo's record to .730, keeping him in seventh place on the list.  Izzo's seven Final Four appearances ties him with Rick Pitino and Roy Williams for second place among active coaches behind Mike Krzyzewski's twelve.
A Sweer 16 appearance for Xavier allows Chris Mack to debut on the list at .545, tied with fellow newcomer Tony Bennett who managed only one win leading two seed Virginia.
Iowa wins one and loses one, giving Fran McCaffery enough games to debut on the list at .300 down near the bottom.  McCaffery has also taken Lehigh, UNC-Greensboro, and Siena to the tournament winning a couple of tournament upsets with Siena.  This year's Iowa team is the first tournament team he has coached that was expected to win a game (as a 7 seed).
