Great Moments in Tournament History: Unbeaten Hoosiers

03/09/2015

Bobby Knight, Scott May, Quinn BucknerThe year was 1976 and the team was Indiana. Coached by the always entertaining Bobby Knight, the Hoosiers rolled to a national championship with a perfect, 32-0 season.

With UCLA having recorded four unbeaten seasons of its own between 1964 and 1973, little would anyone have known at the time that this Indiana squad would be the last to go wire-to-wire for what’s now almost 40 years and counting. Of course, Kentucky sits at 31-0 heading into the SEC Tournament this weekend.

With the Wildcats threatening Indiana’s record as the last team to complete a perfect season, we turn back the clock to 1976 for our latest Great Moment in Tournament History.
