John Wooden finally called it a career in 1975, but not before taking one last NCAA title into retirement with him.

The timing of his announcement was exquisite, coming immediately after UCLA's 75–74 overtime win against Louisville in the NCAA semifinal at San Diego. That was March 29. Two nights later, the Bruins won one more championship for the Wizard—beating Kentucky, 92–85, as Richard Washington and David Meyers combined for 52 points.

Wooden walked away with 10 NCAA titles, an overall record of 664–162, an NCAA tournament record of 47–10, and 19 different Coach of the Year awards over 29 seasons.

UCLA (AP) and Indiana (UPI) shared No.1 honors during the regular season, but the Hoosiers missed a trip to the Final Four when they lost to Kentucky in the Mideast Regional final.
