The “Best College Basketball Team” piece is the final result of conversations with the HERO Sports staff about dominance, dynasty, and what it means to be successful in college sports. Over 1,000 schools sponsor an NCAA men’s basketball team, but only 74 of them have won a National Championship. Only 30 have won multiple titles. Consistent success is an incredibly hard prospect, no matter the division.
HERO Sports came up with a scoring system that is based on a set of criteria and not just championships. The system takes into account recent and historical successes and ranks every team in the sport. HERO Sports’ system is relative to a team’s success within its own division.
Scores are based on the following criteria from HERO Sports:
· Winning Percentage (2010-2015) x 10
· NCAA Tournament Appearance (2000-2015): 0.5 points
· Final Four Appearance (1975-2015*): 1 point
· National Championship (1975-2015*): 2 points
· NABC Player of the Year Award (1982-2015**): 1 point
· NABC Coach of the Year Award (1975-2015*): 1 point
