68. Oregon, 1939
Coach Howard Hobson's team was big for its time, boasting a 6-foot-8 center in Urgel (Slim) Wintermute and a pair of 6-4 forwards in Laddie Gale and John Dick, and earning the nickname "Tall Firs" from newspaper editor L.H. Gregory. They also liked to play fast -- with the tempo paced by guards Bobby Anet and Wally Johansen -- which frustrated shorter, slower teams. That combination of height and speed helped pace Oregon to the NCAA's first basketball title; it beat Ohio State 46-33.
