Recalling the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers

February 22, 2014

No team has gone unbeaten and won the NCAA basketball crown since the Bob Knight coached Indiana Hoosiers in 1976.

That was the first year after legendary coach John Wooden of UCLA had retired.

Indiana had gone unbeaten in the regular season the year before but lost to Kentucky in the regional finals.

The Hoosiers were under a great deal of pressure in 1976 but were up to the task first beating UCLA with Gene Bartow as coach in the semi-finals.

In an all Big Ten Conference final, Indiana defeated Michigan to win the title.
