The South Region is a stew of coaches who have recently dominated the NCAA tournament. Three teams in the bracket - top-seeded Kansas, Florida and North Carolina - are led by coaches who have combined to win five of the last eight national championships. Coaches of seven of the top nine seeds have at least reached the Final Four during that same span. Bill Self, Billy Donovan, Roy Williams, John Thompson III and Shaka Smart are ...

A look at the NCAA men's tournament, the 68-team free-for-all that begins Tuesday and ends three weeks from now at the Final Four in Atlanta:
MANHATTAN - Bruce Weber got what he wanted from the NCAA tournament selection committee.
LAWRENCE - Elijah Johnson is the first to admit there have been far more talented teams to play at Kansas, even in the four years he's been part of the program.
NEW ORLEANS - The season began with coach Bill Self telling Kansas faithful to chill out. It ended with the Jayhawks one game - really, one late run - from winning a national championship.
NEW ORLEANS - Kentucky's defense was so good it overcame its own offense.
NEW ORLEANS - Won and Done, indeed. Maybe even Over and Out. All that really matters is that Kentucky parlayed a roster full of NBA talent into a 67-59 victory Monday night over Kansas for the team's eighth national NCAA basketball title - its first since 1998. Kentucky's top freshman, Anthony Davis, had a rough shooting night, but John Calipari coached this team to a wire-to-wire victory - a little dicey at the end - ...
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Never mind that Anthony Davis couldn't score a lick. The rest of his game was simply sublime in Kentucky's 67-59 victory over Kansas on Monday night that gave the Wildcats their eighth national title.

LAWRENCE - Kansas fans in downtown Lawrence took their team's loss to Kentucky in stride Monday night as they poured onto Massachusetts Street amid random cries of "Rock Chalk Jayhawk," with many proclaiming their pride in a team that wasn't picked to finish in the top three in the Big 12 Conference.
NEW ORLEANS - No matter where Anthony Davis and his buddies go to make their millions, their ol' Kentucky home will long remember this championship season.

NEW ORLEANS - This time Kansas couldn't come all the way back. The gritty team that had walked a tightrope all the way to the national championship game finally fell off against mighty Kentucky. An 18-point deficit against a team full of future NBA draft picks was simply too much for the Jayhawks, who fell 67-59 on Monday night. Kansas had rallied from big early deficits against Purdue and ...
