After Rose shuffled his starting lineup a couple times and changed his starting point guard midstream, the Cougars (21-10) won 13 of their last 16 West Coast Conference games to get back into the NCAA Tournament picture for an at-large berth. Rose is arguably one of the most underrated coaches in the countr...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

For starters, Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s won’t meet in the championship game for the first time since 2008 (when Gonzaga lost to San Diego in the finale) because the Zags and Gaels are in the same half of the bracket.
