1973: UCLA, led by coach John Wooden and junior center Bill Walton, wins an unprecedented seventh straight NCAA men's basketball championship, beating Memphis State 87-66. After falling in the Final Four in 1974, the Bruins would win a championship again in 1975, to make it a total of 10 championships since their first title in 1964.
