Indiana State Sycamores
The Sycamores' first season was 1896, making them the oldest basketball team in the NCAA along with Bucknell, Minnesota and Washington; however, the records from 1896-1899 no longer exist. The Sycamores boast 2 College Players of the Year, 14 All-Americans, 34 1,000-point scorers and 1,410+ victories. Their victory count places them in the Top 70 of all NCAA Division I programs.
In addition, the Sycamores have 25 Post-Season Appearances with 5 National Championship Appearances. Seven Sycamores were members of the 1951 Pan-American Games Gold Medal-winning team. The Sycamore's greatest season was 1978-79, when star Larry Bird led an undefeated team to its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. However, it lost the national title game versus the Magic Johnson-led Michigan State team; and ended the season with a record of 33–1. This is the deepest run by a first-time participant in the Division I tournament, and one of only three times that a first-time team has advanced as far as the Final Four. They would not have another postseason appearance of any sort until 2000.
