The only West Coast team to become a national figure after John Wooden s dynasty of the 1960s and 1970s has been Lute Olsen s Wildcats. On his watch, Arizona has won a national title and reached the Final Four four times, not to mention claiming four Pac-10 tourney championships and 11 regular season titles and produced some impressive NBA talent. Olson s mini-dynasty isn t nearly as impressive as what Wooden achieved, but it s worth mentioning as one of the best runs in recent years. That has to irritate the Bruins program and its fans every time they face each other. And fittingly, the Bruins and Wildcats are atop the conference at this very moment.
