Winning the NCAA Division I Men's or Women's basketball tournament is one of the most difficult feats in all sports. Because of the single-elimination format, teams must win seven consecutive games in under a month to be crowned champion. The taxing nature of the tournament adds a bit of randomness that makes predicting games hard and winning consecutive championships almost impossible.

That being said, colleges have gone on incredible runs. UCLA leads the way with an incredible 11 championship – fueled mostly by John Wooden’s illustrious 10-title run from 1965-1975. The Bruins haven’t won it all since 1995, though. Duke won all five of their titles with Mike Krzyzewski between 1991-2015. And of course, the UConn women's team has won 11 championships since 1995 under head coach Geno Auriemma, including four consecutive titles between 2013-2016 and six undefeated seasons.
