List Rules Vote up the Ivy League schools with the historically best basketball team.

All Ivy League basketball teams want to make a mark when competing against the other top college basketball programs. While the list of Ivy League schools typically is not associated with athletics, there have been a few great players who spent time on college basketball teams in the Ivy League. 

Future NBA stars like Jeremy Lin and Bill Bradley prove some Ivy League players can rise to the top, even if their schools may not top a list of the top NCAA basketball programs.

Vote for your best and check back to see which Ivy League basketball program reigns supreme.
