Highlights:

Roy Williams takes North Carolina to the championship game for the second straight year, this time winning it all, moving up to second place .005 percentage points behind Mike Kyrzyzewski.  With this Championship Game appearance, Williams passes that "other" North Carolina coach Dean Smith, topping him by one in both Final Game appearances and tournaments won (six and three, respectively).
After 17 straight tournament appearances, Mark Few and Gonzaga break through to the Final Four before losing in the Championship Game, moving Few up to .591 and sixteenth place on the list.  Few has taken Gonzaga to the tournament every year he has coached and has won at least one game every year except 2002 and 2008.  He made the Elite Eight in 2015 and has seven Sweet 16 appearances to his credit.
After an Elite Eight finish last year, Dana Altman takes Oregon to the Final Four this time, moving him up to a .500 tournament record at 13-13.  Altman had previously taken Kansas State (first round loss in 1993) and Creighton (seven trips with only two wins) before moving to Oregon and more tournament success (11-5 since 2013).  This was Oregon's second Final Four appearance, the first being in the very first tournament in 1939 which they also happened to win.
Frank Martin takes South Carolina to its (and his) first Final Four appearance, moving him up to .667, good enough for seventh on the list.  This is Martin's first tournament trip with Carolina in five years coaching there.  In his previous head coaching job (five years at Kansas State), he went to the tournament four times, making it to the Elite Eight in 2010. The other year (2009) he took them to a second round finish in the NIT.  Martin has yet to lose in the first round in five trips to the NCAA and two trips to the NIT.
St. Mary's (Ca) wins one and loses one allowing Randy Bennett to debut on the list at .400.  Bennett has been the Gael's coach since 2001 and has taken them to the tournament six times including a Sweet 16 finish in 2010.  The Gaels have also gone to the NIT five times under Bennett, finishing in the Quarterfinals twice (2009 and 2016).
Greg McDermott debut's on the list at .300 after a first round loss for Creighton.  He has taken Creighton to the tournament three other times (winning one game each time as a higher first round seed), as well as taking Northern Iowa three times (losing all three as a lower seed).
