The Top 100 Teams in the Rewards System (1950-2011)

 

About 35 of the 62 NCAA Tournament Champions appear in the top 100 below, along with 15 NCAA Tournament Runner-ups. UCLA has 9 teams in the top 100, followed by Kentucky with 8, though that # will drop to 7 (tying them with North Carolina) once another team forces #100 (the 1977 Wildcat team) from this list.
