The 1994–95 UCLA Bruins men's basketball team won the 1995 National Championship by beating Arkansas 89–78 for the school's 11th title. It was the first title since the 1975 Championship and since the retirement of head coach John Wooden.

The team featured seniors Charles O'Bannon; and a pair of freshmen in Toby Bailey and J. R. Henderson (now known as J. R. Sakuragi). Little-used reserve Bob Myers is now general manager of the NBA's Golden State Warriors.
