Under the guidance of legendary head coach Henry Iba, Oklahoma A&M became the first school in NCAA history to win back-to-back national championships in 1945 and 1946.

The Aggies made their first NCAA tournament appearance in 1945, beating Utah and Arkansas to advance to the title game. A&M defeated NYU 49-45 to win the national championship. Bob Kurland was named most outstanding player for his performance.

The 1946 Aggies went 31-2 en route to their second national championship. All five members of the Oklahoma A&M starting line-up were named to Missouri Valley all-conference first-team. The Aggies knocked off North Carolina, 43-40, in the championship game. Bob Kurland led the way with 23 points, earning him the most outstanding player award for the second-straight year.
