— Michigan coach John Beilein briefly lost track of how long it's been since the Wolverines reached the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament.
Sixteen years, he said. No, 18. Wait. 19.
He was right the third time, but here's how to make it a little simpler. The Fab Five era of the early 1990s was the last time the No. 4 seed Wolverines (28-7) made it this far.
For top-seeded Kansas (31-5) -- the opponent in the South Regional semifinals Friday night -- Fab Five means something more like five trips at least this far in the past six NCAA tournaments, not to mention a championship in 2008 and another appearance in the title game last year.
— When it comes to college basketball, coaching chess matches don't get much better than Mike Krzyzewski vs. Tom Izzo.
Two of the nation's most successful coaches are squaring off in Friday night's Midwest Regional semifinals.
Krzyzewski has an NCAA record 956 career wins and four national championships at Duke, winning two titles in Indianapolis. Tom Izzo has a school-record 493 wins and one national title at Michigan State. He won his title in Indy, where Friday's game will be played.
And few have been better in the postseason. Both coaches have winning percentages of .736 or better in the NCAA tourney. Krzyzewski's 11 Final Four appearances are the most of any active coach. Izzo is tied for third with six.
