18. Ohio State, 1960

The 1960 Ohio State team featured six players who were drafted by NBA teams, including Hall of Famers Jerry Lucas and John Havlicek, as well as Bob Knight, one of the winningest coaches in college basketball history. Led by their sophomore class of Havlicek, Lucas and Mel Nowell and junior Larry Siegfried, the Buckeyes averaged 90.4 points -- long before the 3-pointer and shot clock -- and beat their opponents by an average of 20 points. OSU won the 25-team NCAA tournament by defeating New York University 76-54 in the national semifinals and California 75-55 in the finals. Over the course of three seasons, Havlicek and Lucas led the Buckeyes to a 78-6 record and they never lost at home. They reached the finals of the 1961 and '62 NCAA tournaments, but lost to Cincinnati both times. --Mark Schlabach
