NCAA Tournament 2013: Rick Pitino's Sweet 16 Dominance

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

By now you've probably heard at least something about Rick Pitino's dominance in the Sweet 16. The Louisville head coach will be looking for his 11th win in 11 career appearances in the round when the Cards face Oregon on Friday night in Indianapolis.

That Pitino is 10-0 in Regional semifinal appearances for his career only tells half the story. The man has been flat out dominant in the Sweet 16, winning all 10 games by double digits, winning five times by 21 points or more and twice by more than 30.

Here's the full rundown of Pitino's Sweet 16 ownership:
