The UNC basketball program has the most 25 winning seasons of any Division I basketball program in the nation. This is pure excellence at its finest.
With less than 40 days until the start of the 2022-23 basketball season, UNC Basketball shared that the Tar Heels have the most 25 winning seasons of any Division One program.
Carolina Basketball shared a very interesting stat yesterday on Twitter.
When it comes to consistency, excellence and a winning tradition, there are very few like the Carolina Way. In 112 seasons, the Tar Heels have an all-time record of 2,322-839. That’s an all-time winning percentage of .735. They have been conference champions 39 times and ACC tournament champions 26 times.
When it comes to the regular season, UNC leads all Division 1 teams with over 25 winning seasons. For some perspective, let’s just look at the past 20 years.
Since the 2002-2003 season, the Tar Heels have only had seven seasons with less than 25 wins. Of those seven, there are only 4 of those seasons that have had less than 20 wins. The lowest win total over the past 20 seasons is in 2019-20, when the Tar Heels won just 14 games. Many programs would be grateful for this kind of consistency.
The highest win total in the past 20 years was the 2007-08 season when the Tar Heels went 36-3. They lost in the national semi-final game that season.
Over the past 20 seasons, the Tar Heels have won three national championships. Their total wins in these seasons are as follows.
In the 2004-2005 run to a championship, their record was 33-4
In the 2008–09 run to a championship, their record was 34-4
In the 2016-17 run to a championship, their record was 33-7
Of all their league years, their worst record was 32 wins overall (1981–82).
Their all-time lowest all-season win total was 4 wins in the 1911–12 and 1912–13 seasons. Most recently their worst season was the 2001-2002 season with just 8 wins.
A pretty incredible run of excellence.
