19. UCLA, 1964

Coach John Wooden, according to the Los Angeles Times, said this team was "perhaps my favorite" -- maybe because it was his first to win the title at UCLA. It was his shortest team to win it all, as center Fred Slaughter was only 6-foot-5, but junior Gail Goodrich led the team with 21.5 ppg, and senior Walt Hazzard added 18.6 (becoming the Bruins' all-time leading scorer to that point, with 1,401 points, by the end of the season). It marked the school's first 30-0 unbeaten season, setting the stage for more (and more and more) to come.
