Every Monday at approximately 1 p.m ET, the Associated Press releases their weekly men’s college basketball rankings. Featured in the rankings, are 25 of the best college basketball teams in the nation. These teams possess, flash, promise and purpose. But have you ever wondered to yourself “Who are the WORST teams in college basketball?” Well, fear no more because I now present to you the 3 worst college basketball teams in the nation. 

 

3. Houston Baptist (3-17) 


Houston Baptist, out of the Southland conference started their season with a respectable 80-72 loss at Tulsa. They then went on to lose their next 9 games by a combined score of 932 to 694. That means, that in just 36 quarters of basketball, the Huskies of Houston Baptist managed to get outscored by 238 points.

That is seemingly impossible. But with a defense as bad as the Huskies, nothing seems to be impossible for an opposing offense. On the year, Houston Baptist is giving up 99.1 points a game, which ranks dead last in the country. During one point this season, the Huskies gave up 95 or more points during 14 straight games. If Houston Baptist wants to win another game this season, they are going to have to hope the other team doesn’t show up. 


2. Howard (2-21) 


Coming in 2nd place on our list are the Howard Bison out of the MEAC conference. Howard is currently in the midst of an 11 game losing streak and has not won a game since December 18th. The Bison have yet to win a conference game (0-8,) and are barely keeping their heads above water. The thing that is ironic about Howard, is that they are not losing their games by many points. During their last three contest, the Bison have only lost by a combined 17 points. If they keep pushing, hopefully, this struggling program can get find wins down the home stretch.  


1. Mississipi Valley State (1-19) 

 

 I now present to you the worst team in college basketball, the Mississipi Valley State Delta Devils. Miss Valley State is not only the worst team in college basketball this year, but may also be the worst team in the history of the sport. On November 8, 2019, Miss Valley St was defeated by Utah, 143-49.

This 94 point victory set a record for the highest margin of victory in division 1 history. Then, during the Miss Valley States next game, the Delta Devils were defeated by 56 points to Central Michigan, with the final score being 134-78. These inimical blowouts have continued throughout the year and as of today, the Delta Devils rank last in scoring margin, losing by an average of 25 points per game. 

 

The 1967- 1968 UCLA Bruins are widely considered to be the greatest college basketball team of all time. I think we are going to be saying the opposite about the 2019-2020 Delta Devils come seasons end.
