UCLA owns the most successful Division I collegiate sports program with a nation-leading 108 team national championships.

The Bruins men’s basketball program is also the most decorated Division I program with a record-setting 11 national championships.  This number is boosted largely thanks to coach John Wooden, who won 10 titles in 12 seasons, including seven straight (1967-1973).

Coach Jim Harrick returned the Bruins back to title land in 1995; however, UCLA has found itself in another title slump since then.

Ben Howland replaced Steve Lavin as head coach in 2003 and has done an admirable job keeping the Bruins relevant and competitive.  In his eight previous season, the Bruins have reached postseason play six times, which includes three consecutive trips to the Final Four. 

Howland’s teams are known for their tenacity and aggressive style of defense.  Here is a list of the most influential players of Howland’s time.
