Matt Lottich, Valparaiso (16-4, 6-1 in the Horizon League)

I'm at the point where I'm older than a few of the coaches I have to write about. That's uplifting. The 34-year-old Lottich took over for Bryce Drew, who is now at Vanderbilt and under .500. Like Weir at New Mexico State, Valpo didn't go outside its campus to pick a replacement. The boon: Lottich managed to keep Alec Peters around for one final season, and it has been the game-changer. Without Peters, Lottich is probably not on this list, which isn't to downgrade his acumen, but rather another reminder that Peters is one of the 25 best players in college basketball. He doesn't receive the pub because Valpo is seldom on television. The Crusaders have wins over Alabama, BYU and Rhode Island and would be the No. 13 seed you have no interest in playing come time for the Big Dance.
