Here’s a list of every single NCAA Championship winner by conference.
There has been so much conference jumping and evolution lately. These winners below are assigned to the conference of their championship years.
A different kind of example is the case of the Kansas Jayhawks. They won two as a member of the Big Eight Conference, which became the Big 12 in 1996-97 with the addition of four schools. After that, Kansas won its third.
For more information on each of the conference’s NCAA Tournament performances (schools, W-L, Final Fours, etc) click on the conference below.

USA Today and ESPN released their NCAA Basketball 2012-13 preseason rankings today. Indiana is favored to win it all. The Hoosiers are joined by the Louisville Cardinals and last year’s champions, the Kentucky Wildcats, as the only schools receiving first-place votes.
According to USA Today, this poll, the “Coaches’ Poll” is voted on by “The USA TODAY/ESPN Board of Coaches, made up of 31 head coaches at Division I institutions.”
The Associated Press (AP) will release it’s preseason rankings before the end of October (last year it was October 28th).
I can’t believe it’s time for college basketball again. Seems like I just posted last season’s AP preseason poll.
Below, take a look at this season’s rankings, along with how they finished up in 2011-12.
