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.

Record: 30-0

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.

1967

Record: 30-0

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.
