60 Moments: The UK Untouchables of 1996

The wildcats boast seven national titles. Now, these championship teams often have nicknames. In 1996, Rick Pitino took the commonwealth by storm with his squad known as the "untouchables."

Kentucky would also win the national championship in 1998 under Tubby Smith, making Lexington title town once again.
