High ranks for Ohio BB programs

By Zac

The Basketball Times, a magazine and website that covers the sport you might think it covers, has released its latest, every-five-years ranking of the nation’s top college basketball programs.

This ranking isn’t just about winning, though. It’s based on five categories: winning percentage, NBA players, federal graduation rate, U.S. News and World Report academic reputation and program cleanliness.

Another way to say it: This is a good ranking to be a part of. In the newest ranking released this week, Ohio State came in at 14th and Xavier was 21st.

Xavier is one of only nine schools that have qualified for the rankings project every year it has been done (1997, 2002, 2007 and 2012). The other eight schools are Arizona, Connecticut, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Murray State, North Carolina and Syracuse.
