KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The UCLA men's basketball program's NCAA Championship team from 1963-64, along with two other iconic teams, will be honored on Jan. 27 during a special live National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2020 Induction Celebration presented by Nike.
 
UCLA's 1963-64 team and championship squads from Texas Western (1965-66) and Indiana (1975-76) are forming the Class of 2020. These three teams will officially be enshrined into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame during a virtual event, scheduled to 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 these three Class of 2020 teams have secured a unique place in college basketball history.
 
The Bruins' undefeated 1963-64 championship season began head coach John Wooden's dynasty that produced 10 national titles through 12 seasons. 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 with a perfect 32-0 record, winning the national title. That Hoosiers' team remains the most recent Division I men's team to complete an unbeaten season.
 
Three of college basketball's all-time iconic teams 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.
 
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.
