1964 & 1967 UCLA Bruins
Between 1964-1975 John Wooden’s UCLA team was perhaps the most dominant force in NCAA basketball history.
They won 10 national championships in 12 years, and that run began with a perfect season in 1964.
Going 15-0 in the Big Six, they won all 30 of their regular season games including a 98-83 defeat of Duke in the title game.
Their point guard that year was Walt Hazzard who went on to have a 10 year NBA career after being picked first overall by the LA Lakers in the 1964 draft. And they repeated the feat in 1967.
After missing out on the national title in 1966, they made no mistake this time around.
Completing another perfect 30-0 season they were helped by one of the games greatest ever scorers – Kareem Abdul-Jabber.
At the time named Lew Alcindor, this was his rookie year in college ball – a season in which he averaged 29 points and 15.5 rebounds a game.
The Bruins defeated Dayton 79-64 in the title game played in Louisville, Kentucky.
