The UCLA dominance that brought the school nine titles between 1964 and 1975 was firmly in the rearview mirror when the school reached the tourney as an 8-seed in 1980. That middling ranking didn’t stop them from putting together an impressive run, knocking off top-seeded DePaul in the second round (77-72) before defeating Ohio State (72-68) and Clemson (85-74) to reach the Final Four. The Bruins then went to defeat another overachieving Purdue team by a score of 67-62, led by an efficient 24-point effort from Kiki Vandeweghe (9-of-12 shooting, 6-for-6 from the line). The fun was finally put to an end by tournament heavyweight Louisville, who beat UCLA in the final by a score of 59-54.
