30. Kentucky, 1978

The Wildcats had not secured the national title in 20 years prior to Joe B. Hall's run to the championship with this squad. Jack "Goose" Givens led the way with a ridiculous 41-point effort in the title game victory over Duke, earning MOP honors as he led the Wildcats to their fifth national title. Rick Robey, a 6-foot-10 forward/center, also earned all-tourney honors that year. This wasn't the program's most dominant run to championship. The Wildcats trailed against Florida State in the opening round and escaped Michigan State in the regional finals. But it was a solid team that stepped up in crucial moments. -- Myron Medcalf
