AP All-Time Top 100 Basketball

AP Top 25 polls highlight Top 100 all-time in college hoops

It all started in 1949 with Saint Louis on top. And 68 years later, The Associated Press college basketball poll has ranked a total of 200 schools through more than 1,100 polls — 59 at No. 1.

There have been plenty of changes over the years to how teams are ranked, just as there have been broader changes in the sport itself as hoops evolved from an older style to the amazing performances of today's players, showcased through the flashy made-for-TV drama of the NCAA Tournament.
