26. Connecticut, 2004

Other than their Final Four matchup against Duke, the Huskies dominated the 2004 NCAA tournament. Led by All-American Emeka Okafor, UConn was rarely challenged in the Big Dance. The Huskies won four of their six games by double digits, three by 16 or more. Jim Calhoun's program could hurt teams in different ways. It had a perimeter/slashing threat in Ben Gordon and a great supporting cast (Josh Boone, Rashad Anderson, Denham Brown, Charlie Villanueva). And no team -- regardless of era -- would have had an easy time getting to the rim with Okafor in the paint. UConn was fifth in adjusted defensive efficiency that season, per Ken Pomeroy.
