The undefeated 1975-76 Indiana University basketball team was inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame on Wednesday night during a virtual ceremony.
Quinn Buckner represented the team during the ceremony. Most of the Indiana coverage begins at around the 45 minute mark of the below video.
Indiana’s 1975-76 team finished a perfect 32-0 and remains the most recent Division I team to complete an undefeated season. The dominant Hoosiers – coached by Hall of Famer Bob Knight – won their five NCAA Tournament games by an average of 15.2 points, including an 86-68 rout of Michigan in the national championship game.
Indiana excelled in nearly every phase of the game that season, outscoring opponents by an average of 17.3 points while shooting over 50 percent from the field and forcing an average of 20.3 turnovers per game. Six players from that Hoosier squad would eventually reach the NBA, including Scott May, who won nearly every national player of the year award after averaging 23.5 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
