From Wikipedia on Brad Stevens under Coaching Style

According to Stevens, in one of his first games as head coach, he was nervous and "felt like our team played on edge" because of it.[80] He decided that a team's play will reflect the mood of its coach; a calm coach means a team that will remain poised in difficult game situations, while a nervous coach means a team that plays on edge. "I don’t want to lose a game because of my approach," he told himself.

Stevens' teams are built around solid basketball fundamentals and good team work, rather than individual basketball skill.[50] His teams are known for their defense, forcing opponents into uncharacteristic mistakes.

Same system, better coaching.

From Wiki on Oral Roberts men's basketball under 1997 NIT

Oral Roberts advanced to Division I postseason play for the first time since 1983-84 and the first time as the Golden Eagles. With the leadership of four seniors and the impressive play of junior sensation shooting guard Tim Gill, Head Coach Bill Self led his team to a postseason berth for the first time under his direction in the fourth and last season of his tenure as head coach.
(cont)
ORU went into the game with wins in 12 of its last 13 games, but whatever the reason, the Golden Eagles did not show up to play against the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame only led by six at the half (35-29), but extended its lead to as many as 18 points in the second period (74-56 at 0:15) and ended up winning by 16, 74-58. Gill still led all scorers in the contest with 21 points.

2005,6,7,8,9, and 2012,13, the best teams won. You're entitled to rationalize it however you want.

Elijah Johnson, Travis Releford solid at Invitational

An intentional low blow 2 minutes in and an incompetent 10 sec violation with 2 to go says otherwise.

NBA scout: Ben McLemore top-2 pick

"I'm so sick of coaches telling me that they got nobody on the bench. You know what, yeah you do. You got 4 or 5 guys on the bench, but you're to chicken to play em, because these other 5 guys or 6 guys are better than they are, and you don't wanna give them an opportunity to get in the game."

Young Jayhawks face rough slate in 2013-14

If you want a clear example of player development by bill self, look at his son. No disrespect to Tyler. Attitude reflects leadership.

Hopefully it will be the "right time" to go home to Okie St after Tyler graduates.
