NCAA Division I Champions

Only 35 Schools Have Won It All

The NCAA Division I Champions have taken very different paths to the title since the beginning of the men's basketball tournament in 1939 when the Ducks of Oregon prevailed in an eight-team playoff.

Now, each conference champion is joined by teams that receive at-large bids, and the tournament is a model for determining a season's true champion. From Kentucky's early success that made the Wildcats the first college basketball powerhouse to UCLA's dominance in the 1960s and 1970s that included 10 championships in 12 years, the NCAA Division I men's basketball tournament has created dynasties while giving Cinderella teams such as Villanova and Holy Cross a real shot being NCAA Division I Champions.
