John Wooden's UCLA set standard for being No. 1 in AP poll

The programs that bleed blue have dominated when it comes to being No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll - though the shades of the color have varied.

UCLA has been the most frequent No. 1 in the AP ranking with 134 appearances at the top, mostly thanks to coach John Wooden's unmatched dynasty on the 1960s and `70s. Next come Duke (129), Kentucky (124), North Carolina (110) and Kansas (65).

The Associated Press has been ranking the best teams in college basketball since January 1949. Over 68 years and more than 1,100 polls, a total of 59 schools have been ranked No. 1, starting with Saint Louis. The Billikens wear blue. Maybe it was a sign of things to come.
