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 among the big-name coaches with a history of making the right call at the most pressure-filled time - and they're standing in each other's way on the road to Atlanta.
Among the most enticing potential matchups: a meeting between Kansas' Self and UNC's Williams, a former Jayhawks coach, in the third round.
