University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers
Winning Streak:
14-0
Span:
July 10-September 18, 1993
Led by MVP Dennis Espino, the Aric del-Rosario-mentored Tigers swept their elimination round games in the first year of the UAAP's Final Four era. The 14-game sweep—highlighted by an average winning margin of 15 points—earned for the Espana-based squad an automatic championship, then the incentive for such feat. Aside from Espino, the '93 Tigers featured future PBA players Rey Evangelista, Bal David, Chris Cantonjos, Siot Tanquincen, and Patrick Fran.

Los Angeles Lakes
Winning Streak:
33-0
Span:
November 5, 1971-January 1972
Losers in their past seven Finals appearances, the aging 1971-1972 Lakers seemed destined for another playoff bust. They started the season at 6-3, but lost the great Elgin Baylor to a career-ending injury. But with Hall of Famers Jerry West, Gail Goodrich, and Wilt Chamberlain manning the fort, these Lakers went on a 33-0 tear en route to an explosive 69-13 season (The NBA record for most wins in a regular season until the Chicago Bulls broke it with its 72-10 win-loss card in 1996) and finally an NBA championship.

Martina Navratilova
Winning Streak: 74-0
Span: January 20-December 6, 1984
Considered the greatest female tennis player of all time, Navratilova won a combined 58 Grand Slam titles (singles, doubles, and mixed), which included a record six consecutive Wimbledon single titles from 1982 to 1987. Her greatest feat, though, would have to be her 74-match winning streak, the longest of any player in Tennis' Open era. The streak saw her win 13 titles in a row, including the French and US Opens and the Wimbledon. Just how good was she during the almost year-long streak? She only dropped seven sets of the 155 she played!

Brazil National Football Team
Winning Streak: 12-0
Span:
July 27, 1969-June 21, 1970
Widely remembered as the best football team ever assembled, Brazil's 1970 squad went unscathed in both the FIFA World Cup Qualifying Tournament and the World Cup. Football greats Pele, Rivelino, and Jairzinho scored the bulk of the team's 39 goals during the team's amazing run. Their World Cup victory also made Brazil the first three-time champion of the tournament, which earned them the right to keep the Jules Rimet trophy for good.
