Update:
63. Iowa State
62. Wisconsin
61. Western Kentucky
60. NC State

BTW, I went to the Bucknell vs. NC State game 2-3 years ago. The NC State fans were very nice. The guys sitting next to me were surprised to hear that student athletes can go to college to get a good education in addition to playing basketball. They kept saying something like, 'Why aren't y'all's players at bigger schools? They can really play.'

I used to work with the chief counsel of a major US utility who later served as its chairman and CEO. He grew up in LA and had several D1 offers, a couple of them from major programs, IIRC. He ultimately elected to attend and play for Yale.

His boyhood friends were extremely disappointed in his choice as they were sure he could have "made something of himself" had he gone the major college route.

As an aside, his son graduated from Bucknell a few years ago.

Update:
55. Indiana
54. Georgia Tech
53. Dayton
52. Arizona State

As I was looking at this list, I was thinking that it might be fun to rank the conferences. Without putting a lot of thought into it, I would rank them:
1. ACC
2. Big East
3. Big 12
4. Big 10
5. SEC
6. Pac 12
7. A-10
8. AAC
9. WCC
10. MVC

I think that there could be an argument for moving WCC higher, but really, once you get past Gonzaga and St. Mary's, there is a big drop off to BYU, San Franciso, and Santa Clara.
