4. UCLA, 1967

Legendary UCLA coach John Wooden got a glimpse of what the 1967 Bruins would become the previous season, when his freshman team routinely beat up the varsity squad. Forced to sit out their freshman seasons under NCAA rules, the sophomore class of Lew Alcindor, Kenny Heitz, Lynn Shackelford and Lucius Allen, along with junior Mike Warren, led the Bruins to a 30-0 record and a national championship. It was the first of UCLA's unprecedented seven straight NCAA titles from 1967-73. Alcindor was so dominant in his first college season, averaging 29 points and 15.5 rebounds, that the NCAA banned the dunk shot before the next season. He scored 20 points in a 79-64 rout of Dayton in the championship game and set an NCAA record by making 66.7 percent of his shots in the tournament. --Mark Schlabach
