1965 MEN'S BASKETBALL
Guard Gail Goodrich scored a school-record 42 points to lead the Bruins to a 91-80 victory over Michigan in the NCAA championship game in Portland, Oregon. Goodrich and Keith Erickson were the only returning starters from the team that won UCLA's first national title in 1964, and the Bruins were drubbed by Illinois in the season opener. But John Wooden's squad nearly was flawless after that, with only a loss to Iowa when Erickson was hurt marring the rest of the schedule. UCLA finished 28-2. Goodrich led the Bruins by averaging 24.6 points per game. Erickson averaged 12.9 points and perfected his role as the safety in the zone press. UCLA averaged an even 100 points in winning its four NCAA tournament games.
