37. North Carolina, 1957

With such players as 6-foot-5 big man Lennie Rosenbluth and 5-11 guard Tommy Kearns -- who jumped center in the national title game against Kansas 7-footer Wilt Chamberlain -- these guys were fighters. To finish a perfect 32-0, the Tar Heels had to squeeze by Wake Forest in the ACC tournament, outlast Michigan State in three overtimes in the national semifinals and beat the Jayhawks in three more overtimes the following game -- without Rosenbluth, their leading scorer, who fouled out in regulation. Key to those extra periods were Pete Brennan, who buried a shot to force the third OT against MSU, and Joe Quigg, who batted away a pass to Chamberlain to seal the title victory. -- Robbi Pickeral
