ESPN names Gators' Billy Donovan No. 1 among top 50 coaches
Billy Donovan is the nation's best basketball coach, according to ESPN.
Over the past five weeks, ESPN has been doing a countdown of the top 50 coaches in college basketball, based on a panel of their experts.
Today, on its website, the panel revealed it has chosen Kentucky's John Calipari as No. 2 and Donovan as No. 1.
Here is part of what ESPN.com's Eamonn Brennan wrote:
"The Florida coach edged out Calipari, Tom Izzo, Mike Krzyzewski and (Rick) Pitino. It's hard to think of a better testament to Donovan's current stature in the sport than this one."
