The Kentucky Wildcats are currently 28-1, while the Syracuse Orange are 29-1. If either team is able to run the table the rest of the way, it would surely go down as one of the greatest college basketball teams of all time. 

But who is already in that discussion? Who has dominated March (and April) on their way to becoming the greatest Final Four champion ever?

The UCLA Bruins had a few good teams in the 1960s and 1970s.

NBA legends such as Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Patrick Ewing all led pretty solid teams in college, too.

There are lots of solid candidates, but we can only pick 10.

When compiling the list, I didn't include multiple teams. For example, UCLA won 10 National Championships in 12 years, and I probably could have used every one of those squads, but I only used one Lew Alcindor team and one Bill Walton team.

With that in mind, here's a look at the 10 greatest champions in college basketball history.
