KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Three of college basketball’s all-time iconic teams – including the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers – will be honored on Wednesday, January 27 at 8:00 p.m. (ET) during a special live National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2020 Induction Celebration presented by Nike.
Joining the 1975-76 undefeated national champions in the 2020 Hall of Fame Class are the 1963-64 UCLA Bruins and the 1965-66 Texas Western Miners. The three teams will officially be enshrined into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame during the virtual event, which will air live on Twitter and halloffameweekend.com.
Hosted by CBS Sports’ Clark Kellogg and Andy Katz of Turner Sports, FOX Sports and the Big Ten Network, the induction celebration will feature commentary and footage of the three legendary teams, as well as interviews with former players.
Each of the three Class of 2020 teams owns a unique place in college basketball history.
UCLA’s undefeated 1963-64 championship season kickstarted John Wooden’s dynasty that would eventually produce 10 national titles. Texas Western’s 1965-66 squad became the first to win a national championship with an all-Black starting lineup, a keystone moment on and off the court. Indiana’s 1975-76 team finished a perfect 32-0 en route to winning the national title and remains the most recent Division I men’s team to complete an unbeaten season.
The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is located inside the College Basketball Experience (CBE), a world-class experiential entertainment facility adjacent to Kansas City’s T-Mobile Center. The Class of 2020 is the 15th induction class in the Hall of Fame’s history. The Hall of Fame and CBE are operated by the NABC Foundation.
