The '95-96 UMass Minutemen clued in the nation on their secret at the beginning of the season when they defeated No. 1 Kentucky 92-82 to start a run of 26 consecutive wins. The secret? John Calipari's squad was really, really good. So was Marcus Camby. The junior center poured in 32 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and blocked 5 shots. It would remain a theme as the season went on with Camby leading the Minutemen to a No. 1 ranking, a 1-seed in the East Region of the NCAA Tournament.
Once there, the Minutemen survived a scare from Stanford to reach the Sweet 16 where they destroyed 12-seed Arkansas to set up an Elite 8 showdown with Allen Iverson and the 2-seed Georgetown Hoyas. As it turns out it was only a showdown on paper as UMass cruised to a 14-point win and a trip to the schools first Final Four. Camby won several National Player of the Year awards for averaging 21 points, 8 boards and nearly 4 blocks before declaring for the 1996 NBA Draft where he was selected 2nd overall.
