Iconic Sports Moments: 1960s & 1970s

1960s & 70s — UCLA Men’s Basketball Dynasty

The greatest dynasty in the history of collegiate sports — and arguably in all of sports history — was the UCLA Bruins basketball team between 1963-1975. Under the coaching expertise of the legendary John Wooden, UCLA dominated college basketball for more than a decade. To kick off the dynasty, the 1963-64 Bruins went 30-0 and captured the NCAA Championship. Following a second title the following year, UCLA came up short in 1965-66…a brief blip for the program. UCLA would go on to win seven-straight National Championships. At one point, the Bruins won 88 games in a row. The Bruins were denied an eighth-straight title in 1973-74, but they bounced back to win their 10th title in 12 years the following season.
