63. CCNY, 1950

Once upon a time, City College of New York was a legitimate basketball program, one capable of competing with the Kentuckys and Holy Crosses of the world on the Division I hoops stage. But that was before a 1951 point-shaving scandal uncovered that three stars of the 1950 CCNY Beavers had been involved with organized crime, just a few of the 32 players at various programs across the country (ranging from Kentucky to Bradley) implicated. CCNY de-emphasized its athletics programs as a result, dropped down to Division III and was never heard from on the hardwood again. --Eamonn Brennan
