25 Best College Basketball Teams In America

College basketball is huge in the United States, just like football and baseball. They regularly attract large crowds, and many of the players wind up as NBA pro ball players. So, let’s have a look at the 25 best college basketball teams of the last 5 years.

Xavier Musketeers

Though they have no national titles, the Musketeers have missed only the NCAA Tournament twice in the past fifteen years. This is quite a remarkable achievement for a team outside of the Power-Five schools.



Georgetown Hoyas

Georgetown can count their peak as the 2007 season when coach John Thompson III guided them to a fourth-placed finish. Fortunes have been much more modest since, and the team have been unable to replicate this feat.


Marquette Golden Eagles

They may not have the best record, but they certainly have one of the best names! The Golden Eagles shocked the world in 2003 when they beat Kentucky to cement a semi-final appearance. They made 8 consecutive NCAA appearances between 2006-13.


Butler Bulldogs

With 2 final four appearances and a 2 Highest Coaches Poll Finishes of 2nd, the Bulldogs have enjoyed some moderate success.
