1967 MEN'S BASKETBALL
UCLA started four sophomores and a junior but rarely was challenged en route to a 30-0 season and its third national championship in four years. One of the sophomores was center Lew Alcindor, who scored a school-record 56 points in his first varsity game and later had 61 in a victory over Washington State. Alcindor averaged 29.0 points per game and set an NCAA record by making 66.7 percent of his field-goal attempts. He earned the first of three consecutive player of the year awards. Guard Lucius Allen averaged 15.5 points per game and guard Mike Warren, the lone junior in the starting lineup, added 12.7. The Bruins outscored their four NCAA tournament opponents by 95 points. They easily handled upstart Dayton 79-64 in the championship game at Louisville, Kentucky.
