The UConn Huskies are once again national champions after taking down Zach Edey and Purdue in a display of utter dominance during Monday's NCAA tournament final showdown, winning 75–60.

The Huskies have now won back-to-back national championships, becoming the first program to do so since Florida in 2006 and '07.

Dan Hurley's squad breezed through this year's tournament, disposing of opponents with ease and scarcely facing more than a hiccup en route to the program's sixth championship in the last 25 years. UConn's 14-point win over Alabama in the Final Four was the team's smallest margin of victory throughout their tournament run. They became the first team in NCAA Tournament history to win six games by 14 or more points.

That level of preeminence didn't go unnoticed by college basketball fans, many of whom didn't hesitate to rank this Huskies team among the greatest college squads of all time. Fans voiced their admiration for Hurley's program on social media after it secured its second straight national title.
