How many times has Stansbury been THIS close?

Rick Stansbury may be doing the most underrated job of coaching at the college level in the nation, particularly when you consider he's been as good as he has been while coaching college ball in the state of Mississippi. He overcame the shambles the program was in when he took over for Richard Williams. He overcame failed commitments from guys like Jonathan Bender, Travis Outlaw, and Monta Ellis, who jumped straight to the League while that was still a possibility. This past year may have been his best effort, considering that he expected Renardo Sidney to be able to suit  up for him at some point this season (which obviously never happened), Coach Stansbury did one hell of a job this season and over the course of his career in Starkville in my opinion. With all the upsets in the Tournament this year, if the ball had bounced differently against Kentucky, who knows what the Dawgs would've been able to do?
