UCLA Bruins NCAA Tourament Tickets Information

In terms of success on the basketball court, there is no other college basketball team that has the resume that the UCLA Bruins do. The Bruins basketball team was established in 1920, and began winning immediately. Before the NCAA Tournament was ever contested, UCLA had already rattled off 6 conference championships, all coming in consecutive years from 1921-1927. But following these early years of success, the Bruins fell into an era of limited success until 1945, when UCLA would name John Wooden the head basketball coach. It would take Wooden only 5 short years to take the Bruins from Pacific Coast Conference bottom dwellers, to the NCAA Tournament. UCLA made their first appearance in the tournament in 1950, sparking a 25 year period of success that is unrivaled by any other team in major college sports.

Under Wooden, the Bruins would return to the NCAA Tournament again in 1952, 1956, 1962, and 1963. But it was in 1964 that UCLA really broke through. The 1964 UCLA Bruins were led by guard Walt Hazzard, and stormed through the college basketball landscape. The Bruins entered the NCAA Tournament undefeated, a record that would remain unblemished as UCLA knocked off Seattle, San Francisco, Kansas State, and Duke in-route to their first ever college basketball national championship. John Wooden and the Bruins were only getting started, as UCLA returned the NCAA Tournament a year later, once again winning the National Championship, tying the record of back to back NCAA Tournament Titles. Two years later, UCLA would enter the NCAA Tournament undefeated for a 2nd time, and again run the table, beating Dayton 79-64 in the National Championship Game, to take their 3rd title in 4 years. That feat would quickly be dwarfed by what UCLA would do next, as the Bruins won the NCAA Tournament in 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, and 1973. The seven straight College Basketball National Championships by UCLA is a record that will likely never be broken. The final two years of that run included two more undefeated seasons, and 60 straight wins. The John Wooden led UCLA Bruins would win the NCAA Tournament again in 1975, ending a run of 10 National Championships in a 12 year period.

Following the departure of John Wooden from Los Angeles, the Bruins would continue to be a power in the NCAA Tournament, but would not return as champions until the 1995 season. Behind Jim Harrick’s coaching and the fantastic play of Ed O’Bannon, the Bruins would knock off Arkansas in the National Championship game to take home a record 11th NCAA tournament Title. The Bruins would once again return to prominence under the leadership of Ben Howland who took UCLA to 3 straight Final Four’s from 2006-2008, reaching the NCAA Tournament Final in 2006.

UCLA Bruins Basketball 5 5 1 1
The Wizard of Westwood With the passing of the all-time greatest coach (perhaps in all of sport) John Wooden just a few months ago, UCLA Basketball lost the man who made the program what it is today. But the 11 National Title banners still remain. The court is named after Wooden and his wife Nelle. The aura remains, and Head Coach Ben Howland, perhaps more than any other UCLA successor to Wooden, has completely embraced the tradition. Wooden's footprint has long been on the program and will remain for many years to come. Pauley Pavillion is a place of champions. Step into the building and you can touch, taste, smell, hear, and feel greatness. 2010-2011 is a year for UCLA Basketball which will be dedicated to John Wooden, and appropriately it will be one of Howland's most talented squads since he's been at UCLA. Howland just needs a little John Wooden magic to put it all together and create a Wooden-type winner. August 10, 2010
