8. UCLA, 1973

Another late-'60s, early '70s college hoops tournament, another ho-hum UCLA championship, right? Well, sort of. The Bruins did indeed prevail in 1973, which coach John Wooden had made habit of in the decade prior, but they also went undefeated, set a three-year record of 88 straight games without a loss and won the national title thanks to Bill Walton's 44 points on 21-of-22 from the field. So, yeah: another ho-hum UCLA title. Walton and Jamaal Wilkes were named first-team All-Americans. -- Eamonn Brennan
