Back in 1968, people were excited about this Houston team. How excited? Well, excited enough for their regular season game against UCLA—dubbed the "Game of the Century"—to be the first NCAA basketball game ever broadcast on primetime television. In that game, Hayes and the Cougars bested Lew Alcindor and UCLA in front of more than 50,000 people at the Astrodome in Houston. The Bruins did get the last laugh by beating Houston in the Final Four later on in the season. But you still can't deny that this is one of the best teams to ever lace 'em up in college basketball.
