ESPN researchers Nick Loucks, Harold Shelton and Chris Fallica revealed this week their new men’s college basketball prestige rankings. The duo analyzed 300 Division I men’s college basketball teams, weighing the thousands of regular-season and postseason wins and losses, the NBA draft picks, the All-Americans and the national titles to come up with a numerical point system to provide unbiased rankings of every college hoops program’s success since the start of the 1984-85 season. However, the rankings required teams to have 15-seasons minimum competing in Division-I, automatically eliminating the Belmont Bruins and 40 other current D-I teams from the list. However, of the schools that were eliminated because they didn’t have the minimum 15 D-I seasons, the school that would have finished the highest is Belmont (132).
