UNC? UCLA? Florida? What's happened to the hoops dynasties?

SI's Stewart Mandel asks what happened to all the hoop dynasties and takes readers though a discussion that includes Florida's back-to-back-titles to back-to-back NITs and our own crash this season.

Ben Howland's Bruins have also been victimized by a string of one-and-dones. While their 2006-'08 run revolved around several key veterans (Aaron Afflalo, Darren Collison, Josh Shipp, and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute all played at least three seasons), two stars from that last team, center Kevin Love and guard Russell Westbrook, bolted after their only seasons as starters, as did last year's star freshman, Jrue Holiday. This year, the bottom finally fell out.

"It has definitely been a challenge when you are starting over again," Howland said.
