Top Ten Best NCAA Basketball Teams of All Time


The Top TenXW

11982 North Carolina Tar Heels

Your statement is irrelevant whether they went to class of not there we the greatest team ever in my opinion.

They should not be on the list. Duke has two championships that are more recent then their last one

This team needs to be removed from this list. This team probably cheated along with all of the other UNC teams (Maybe not 1959). It's easy to win when you don't have to go to class.

Finally! Someone put Carolina at the top instead of Duke. Go Heels!

21990 UNLV Runnin' Rebels

UNLV teams from both 1990 and 1991 would have destroyed 1982 UNC. So would that 1992 Duke team. Take Jordan away from that team and nobody would care about them at all... Just another chance to worship the golden calf. The 1984 Georgetown Hoyas, 1976 Indiana Hoosiers and that 1968 UCLA team are all better choices. Heaven forbid Jordan take a backseat to anything, right? - jfausti

best team in history and should be number 1. 34-0 and outscored opponents by 28 points for the season. Thats ridiculous!

Runnin rebels would have crushed the 1982 tar heels

31976 Indiana Hoosiers

I still believe this team should be at #1 of all time. - westofohio

They just put up a banner at I.U. stating the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers are the best team in NCAA basketball history.
Once you have a banner it's true. - westofohio

The Hoosiers movie: LAME!
The Hoosiers team: AWESOME!

Would beat anyone today

41992 Duke Blue Devils

christian laettner owning the wildcats in buzzer beater - jwileson

Christian laettner was a scumbag.. Stepping on a backup center's face deliberately when the player was laying on the floor! Another great Duke moment in basketball, NOT!

Nah your just jealous because duke is way better than the other team...Christian laettner is always ganna be better than ΓΌ are u "scumbag"

51993 Kentucky Wildcats

Kentucky is the best ever people I know that because they'ev won 8 rings ans lottss others. (not exactly that much, s, and t's, ) Even thoe Duke beat the wildcats in 91-92. (1991-1992) Kentucky is the winningest team in college hitory. Beat that!

Look at history not just the last 20 years lots of dominate teams that you forgot about

81979 Michigan State Spartans

Greatest player of all time! MAGIC!

91972 UCLA Bruins

This is the best team ever, it's not even close. By not having this team number 1 makes this list a complete joke.

They went 30-0 that season with Bill Walton and they beat everybody they faced by nearly 25-30 points

They should have the Michigan fab five.

102000 Michigan State Spartans

The Contenders

112003 U-Conn Huskies

This team was loaded Emeka Okafor, Ben Gordon, Rudy Gay, Josh Boone, Marcus Williams, Charlie Villanueva, and A. J Price

122002 Maryland Terrapins
131974 North Carolina State WolfPack

Ended UCLA's unbelievable Title Run and was
Undefeated the following year as well and
Would have easily won another NCAA title
If not for NCAA silly infraction in 75. David
Thompson was the first Michael Jordan
Great Team

142013 Michigan Wolverines

Yes. Its because they went to the championship game in 2013 against the Louisville Cardinals but than they lost. They play good most years! - coolphil999

152005 Illinois Fighting Illini

Having seen every game of the 05 season it is easy for me to say this is the greatest team in Illinois history. That said, they are certainly Top 5 all time but not number 1. Had Sean May not gotten away with his 'fat man' strategy I think they would have had a great deal more press. Deron, Dee, and Luther were all in the right place at the right time.

Best team ever was probably 92' Duke. They had a near flawless inside/outside game

Very good chemistry between Dee Brown, Deron Williams and Luther Head brought them also together on the court to have an unstoppable frontcourt. And with Roger Powell. Jr and James Augustine in the backcourt they were more unstoppable. Definitiely should've won the NCAA tourney in 05

31-1 and having to go through the big 10 is a tough thing to do. greatest team ever! I-L-L... I-N-I

161966 U.T.E.P. Miners
172009 North Carolina Tar Heels

This team needs to be deleted from this list. None of these players attended classes at the UNC and quite possibly could have been paid by boosters. It's easy to win when you don't have to go to class.

This team went crazy! With Tyler Hansbrough, on of the ACC's greatest ever basketball players, AND Ty Lawson, they were basically unstoppable. They averaged each possesion only being 5 SECONDS LONG! They also wonthe nat'l championship by 17 and pulled all starters in the second half. Where are you ever gonna see something like this again?
