1972 & 1973 UCLA Bruins

We told you Wooden’s Bruins were dominant!

After winning further titles in ’68, ’69, ’70 and ’71, they triumphed again – but this time without losing a single game.

1972

Record: 30-0

A tram including future hall-of-famers Bill Walton and Jamaal Wilkes swept all before them beginning with a 105-49 W against The Citadel, and ending with a 81-76 win against Florida State for the national championship.

And they were up to their same tricks just a year later.

1973

Record: 30-0

UCLA managed to repeat with a perfect season, meaning in all they won 60 consecutive games over the two years.

Bill Walton’s performance in the Bruins 87-66 win against Memphis State – a game in which he made 21 of 22 shots to score 44 points – is often cited as the best ever in college basketball.

And throughout the season the Bruins reinstated their own claim as the best team ever to play the game at that level.
