The 2011-2012 Kentucky Wildcats are one of the best college basketball teams in recent memory, if not all time. 

With the one of many No. 1 recruiting classes brought in by head coach John Calapari, the Wildcats went on to finish the season 32-2 earning the top spot overall in the NCAA Tournament. From there the Wildcats proceeded to win six straight games, the sixth being a beat down of Kansas for the National Championship. The title was the University's eighth in their illustrious history.
