Arkansas Razorbacks among all-time top 100 college basketball teams

The Associated Press released a list of the all-time top 100 college basketball programs Wednesday.

Arkansas has a solid basketball tradition, so it might surprise you where the Razorbacks stack up in the Associated Press' all-time top 100 college basketball teams released Wednesday.

Despite six Final Fours, a national championship in 1994 and two legendary coaches, Arkansas checks in at No. 31.

The ranking was not arbitrary. Instead, the AP determined the list using its rankings that began in January 1949. A team was awarded one point for every appearance in the AP's poll and two points for every No. 1 ranking.

Arkansas has been ranked No. 1 in 12 polls (all but one came during the 1990s), which is tied for the 21st most all-time. However, the Razorbacks have not been consistently ranked as much as other schools, resulting in only 289 points.

They are just behind fellow SEC schools Florida, Missouri and Alabama and just ahead of Virginia, Wake Forest and Oklahoma State. Arkansas' longtime SWC rival, Texas, is No. 36.

Not surprisingly, Kentucky is No. 1 with 1,111 points. North Carolina (1,098 points), Duke (1,032), UCLA (957) and Kansas (857) round out the top five.

Here is a look at where all SEC schools are ranked:

1. Kentucky - 1,111 points (124 weeks at No. 1)

t-27. Florida - 306 (14)

29. Missouri - 300 (6)
