Top Ten Best NCAA Basketball Teams of All Time

The Top Ten

1 1982 North Carolina Tar Heels

This is definitely the best team of all time. I hate duke so much and they should not even be on this list. And people say the 92 duke team should be 1. When there best player stepped on a player. This is definitely the best p. GO TAR HEELS!

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.

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

2 1976 Indiana Hoosiers

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.

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

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

Did not lose, the best, case closed

3 1990 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?

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

Loaded top to bottom. One the great underrated coaches. Completely outclassed every opponent.

Won while being investigated by the NCAA who was willing to do anything to stop them!

4 1993 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!

We are Kentucky wildcats!

Go wildcats!

5 1992 Duke Blue Devils

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!

This is the best team of NCAA's history with a best player of the NCAA history.

christian laettner owning the wildcats in buzzer beater

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"

6 1968 UCLA Bruins

The Best College Basketball team ever.. Kareem.. Gail Goodrich.. John Vallely (a pure shooter).. Wicks and Rowe (who won a Championship in 70-71).. These UCLA teams had a 88 game winning streak..

Were do we start they had the NBA'S all time Leading scorer Kareem Abdul Jabbar oh and they had Gail Goodrich Both are in the Hall of Fame along with John R. Wooden Three of them are in the Hall of Fame

Definition of team. Had all the parts. Destroyed Houston after falling to that great team earlier.

Dean Smith, HOF UNC coach called the 1968 Bruins the best ever.

7 1954 Kentucky Wildcats

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

8 1989 MIchigan Wolverines
9 1979 Michigan State Spartans

Greatest player of all time! MAGIC!

10 2009 Kentucky Wildcats

John Wall, DeMarkus Cousins, Patrick Patterson, Eric Bledsoe. Arguably the most talented team in the nation at the time. John Wall was the best point guard in the nation, DeMarkus Cousins won gold in the Rio Olympics, Eric Bledsoe was the second best point guard in the nation, and Patrick Patterson was in the top 15 NBA drafts of the season. People to this day wonder how Kentucky didn't win the national championship that year, and people speculated they were good enough to stack up against NBA teams.

The Contenders

11 1972 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.

12 2000 Michigan State Spartans
13 2013 Louisville Cardinals
14 2002 Maryland Terrapins
15 2003 U-Conn Huskies

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

16 2012 Kentucky Wildcats

Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist were the first 2 overall draft picks in their class. And they had Terrance Jones, Marquise Teague, Doron Lamb, and Darius Miller who were all solid and did make it to the NBA

Anthony Davis. Ncaa championship. There were six players drafted, that's 11 eye brows (if you didn't know)

This team was made up of 6 NBA players with a chemistry unlike anything anybody has ever seen.

This team was ridiculous not a single team could get in their way

17 1974 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

Not sure why this isn't higher on the list. Went 30-1 overall and 12-0 in the ACC, and then went on to win the NCAA and ACC championships. the 83 team needs to be higher as well.

David Thompson...enough said

18 2013 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!

19 1966 U.T.E.P. Miners
20 1997 Kansas Jayhawks
21 2009 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?

They are a team

22 1987 Indiana Hoosiers
23 2005 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

24 2008 Kansas Jayhawks

Mario's Miracle. Enough said

25 2014 Kentucky Wildcats
