Better: in The NCAA Tournament than 2018 Villanova.

Should be a fun exercise in overglorifying 70s packed in the lane D pre 3 point line era teams...

All 3 years of Lew Alcindor at UCLA. He is the greatest college player EVER. The won 3 consecutive titles. His Freshman year , Freshman were ineligible to play ,UCLA won the NCAA title . The title team played the freshman with Alcindor and the freshmen beat the champs badly. Look it up . Average margin of victory for the freshman team was 50 .

To be specific, the early 80’s North Carolina teams with Jordan, Worthy, Perkins.

Georgetown Ewing teams.

UNLV of Larry Johnson, Augmon

Duke with Hill, Hurley and Laetner

Teams that didn’t win, Houston with Hakeem and Drexler

You have teams with multiple hall of gamers. Guys that were big NBA stars that stuck around all 4 years, or at least 3. Star power in college basketball is a shadow of what it used to be.

Nova had a really good team with solid chemistry, but just a bunch of NBA role players.

Not quite...but close:
The 1964-65 team won it all, but...1966 was the year that Texas Western beat Kentucky.
From Wikipedia:
The 1965–1966 UCLA Bruin team was the ranked No. 1 in preseason polls.[2] On November 27, 1965, the freshmen team, led by Lew Alcindor, defeated the varsity team 75–60 in the first game in the new Pauley Pavilion.[3] Alcindor scored 31 points and had 21 rebounds in that game although the defeat had no effect on the varsity's national ranking. The Bruins were still number one the following week.

UCLA ended up second in their conference that year and didn't make the tournament.

But they won 3 straight titles with Alcindor, going 88-2 and losing just 2 regular-season games in 3 years.

Lewisville, NC
UNC '81/'82
Houston '82/'83
Kentucky 95/96
Duke 91/92
Kentucky 11/12

I won't even mention any of the UCLA teams.

Not sure I would even put that Nova team in the Top 10
Good choices.

Also NC State 73/74
David Thompson, Tommy Burleson, Monte Towe
They were undefeated in 1973 but ineligible for the tournament, then took down a very good Bill Walton UCLA team in 1974

The UNLV team of Larry Johnson was incredible. Tark was as good as coach as anyone with less high school all americans than Duke and North Carolina
