All week long, we've unveiled what our scoring system has deemed the 50 most successful programs of the past 50 years.

But what about the few hundred other schools that have played Division I basketball over the past half-century? Who just missed the 50 in 50 cut? Where does your favorite team rank among its conference rivals? To find out, we crunched the numbers for everyone.

The teams are listed by the conference they will be playing in during the 2012-13 season. In order for a school to be ranked in the study, they must have 15 seasons as a full Division I member. Under that guideline, 309 programs qualified.

Without further ado, here are the league breakdowns:
