The 'best' basketball state is determined by the combined RPI/Kenpom ratings for all D1 schools in a given state based on the half-way point of a single season. What a joke. How about take the number of NCAA basketball titles hanging from the rafters? On men alone, Connecticut with UConn's 4 titles would come in at #5 behind California with 15, Kentucky with 11, North Carolina with 11, and Indiana with 5 and just ahead of Ohio, Kansas and Michigan who each have 3. Now combined the number of women's titles, Connecticut rises to #2 with 13 titles behind #1 Cal with 18 and just ahead of NC with 12.
