It appears Kentucky coach John Calipari, the master program-builder who seems to get out of town just before the NCAA comes snooping, has a good chance to reach the Final Four with his third different school. Regardless of what anyone thinks of the former Massachusetts and Memphis coach, that's quite an accomplishment. Rick Pitino is the only coach to do it. But it's far from a sure thing. The Wildcats are the No. 1 seed in the East Regional, the No. 2 seed overall in the NCAA tourney.
