Mecca of College Basketball

Geographically speaking, Cincinnati could call themselves the center of the Universe when it comes to basketball. Problem is, we all know most of the basketball lore from  The Queen City of the West is because an Indianapolis-native briefly provided his talent in the late 50s. The same man who the NCAA later named their Player of the Year trophy for: Oscar Robertson . Besides that, there's not much to say about Tri-State Hoops. Much of the success over past decades have been spread out to neighboring NCAA schools like Kentucky, IU, Michigan, Louisville, Michigan State... the list goes far beyond just bluebloods and powerhouses - Dayton was a top-5 school just as March Madness was about to begin, until the damn panic shut it down. Creighton was contending for a top-10 spot. Iowa & Illinois are also ranked in the top-10. I might be so bold as to say that in any given year, at least half the ranked teams are from the Midwest. Yep, that includes  NET , RPI , Sagarin , and  KenPom

Indy named in "21 Best Places to Go in '21"
