The 30 Most Influential NCAA MBB Teams of SLAM’s 30 Years: Full List

Since ‘94, SLAM has represented every corner of the game. From high school gyms and historic blacktops to professional arenas and college campuses, we’ve been there to cover, represent and amplify the names of the next generation. And there’s no bigger stage than March.

For the next 30 days—Monday through Friday—we’ll be spotlighting the 30 most influential men’s college teams from SLAM’s past 30 years. Stats, records and chips aren’t the main factor here, and if we’re being honest that’s never been our MO. Each historic team we mention in this list has stitched their own contribution to the game’s cultural fabric. Here at SLAM, that’s the end-all be-all metric. 

Stay tuned as we unveil the 30 most influential men’s college teams in our history. And if you’re feeling nostalgic like we are, make sure to check out our latest retro collegiate collection. Shop here.
