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.

Now, for the first time, the AP is using that data to go past the Top 25 of the moment and ask: what are the top 100 programs of all-time ? The schools at the top are a who's who of college basketball royalty, starting with Kentucky. Kentucky is the all-time No. 1 with appearances in three-fourths of all polls and 124 No. 1 rankings.

Xavier point guard Edmond Sumner entering NBA draft

CINCINNATI (AP) — Xavier point guard Edmond Sumner announced on Tuesday that he's entering the NBA draft even though he's still recovering from a significant knee injury.

The sophomore tore his left ACL on Jan. 29 and had surgery. He was still using crutches last week while the Musketeers reached the Elite Eight before losing to Gonzaga.
