Highlights:

National Champs: UConn Jim Calhoun
Second place: Duke Mike Krzyzewski
Third place(tied): Ohio State Jim O'Brien
Third place(tied): Michigan State Tom Izzo

Jim Calhoun finally wins a national title and jumps up to .676 and 14th place.
A trip to the finals for Duke only improves Mike Krzyzewski's record by .005, keeping him in third place just behind Rick Pitino.
Tubby Smith and Kentucky visit the Elite Eight, putting Smith on the big list for the first time at .750 in sixth place.
Tom Davis finishes his career at Iowa with a Sweet 16 trip and a .621 record, just .004 behind Adolph Rupp.  While he never made it to the Final Four, in ten trips, Davis never came away without a win, a claim that can only be made by one other retired coach with 20 or more tournament games - the legendary Hank Iba.
Gary Williams takes Maryland to the Sweet 16 and debuts on the list at .571 in 34th place.
Gene Keady goes to the Sweet Sixteen for the second year in a row, pulling to within one game of .500 and passing Ray Meyer.
