10. UNLV, 1990

No team overcame more distractions than the 1990 Runnin' Rebels en route to winning a national championship. NCAA investigators made at least 11 trips to the UNLV campus during the 1989-90 season, and 10 players were suspended at some point for receiving impermissible benefits. Guard Greg Anthony broke his jaw in mid-January, had it wired shut the next day and showed up wearing a hockey mask at practice. He never missed a game. Led by future NBA first-round picks Anthony, Larry Johnson and Stacey Augmon, UNLV survived a 69-67 scare against Ball State in the Sweet 16 and then blasted Loyola Marymount 131-101 to reach the Final Four. The Rebels defeated Georgia Tech 90-81 in the national semifinals and then handed Duke a 103-73 loss in the finals, the most lopsided championship game in history. -- Mark Schlabach
