Cincinnati’s greatest era of success was during the 1960’s when Oscar Robertson, a three-time All-American, led the team by averaging over 33 points per game, putting him at third all time in Division-I play. Soon after Robertson left, the Cincinnati Bearcats would continue their success by winning back-to-back national championships in 1961 and 1962. After a downturn in the ‘70's and ‘80's, Bob Huggins took over as coach and took the Bearcats to 14 NCAA Tournaments, and the Final Four in 1992.
