Most NCAA tourney-tested coaches nestled in South Carolina

No site hosting opening-round men's NCAA Tournament games can roll out a roster of coaches with more victories or NCAA Tournament success than the quintet in South Carolina. Those five coaches alone have more NCAA titles (six), Final Four trips (22) and career victories (3,803) than the combined 56 coaches at the other seven sites entering Thursday's first-round games. The rest of the tournament coaches have combined to make 21 Final Four trips and captured five titles. That’s particularly true of the Blue Devils, who haven't played in the NCAA Tournament since 2019 after the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the 2020 tournament and they missed last year's tournament for the first time since 1995.wftv.com
