You'd think that if a program lost a guy like Oscar Robertson—like the Bearcats did in 1960—it'd completely fall off the map. Or, at the very least, fall off for a few years. Yet Cincy put together a mini-dynasty in the early '60s. Led by their All-American center Hogue, they won a 'chip in '61, another one in '62, and then made it all the way to the Final Four in '63. Not bad at all for a team who lost one of the greatest basketball players ever just a few years prior.
