UCLA became the first school to win three consecutive NCAA national championship in 1969. The following season, the Bruins continued their winning ways, beating Jacksonville 80-69 in the 1970 title game behind a double-double from Sidney Wicks — the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

The Bruins possessed the most experience of any Final Four team in 1970 as this was UCLA's sixth championship in as many trips to the title game. Jacksonville reached the national final in its first-ever tournament appearance. Third- and fourth-place finishers New Mexico State and St. Bonaventure had previously made the NCAA tournament but were both playing their first national semifinal games.

The 1995 NCAA tournament bracket

The 1995 NCAA tournament saw UCLA win its 11th national title — and stop Arkansas from going back-to-back.

The Bruins' run to the title included Tyus Edney's game-winning score to beat Missouri in the second round. At the Final Four in Seattle, North Carolina and Oklahoma State joined UCLA and Arkansas.

Arkansas' run to the title game is notable for all the close games — the Razorbacks won games by one point, two in overtime, five in overtime, seven in the Elite Eight and then seven again in the Final Four.
