To kill time during the offseason, ESPN is ranking the overall "prestige" of 298 different college basketball programs since 1984-85, when the NCAA tournament expanded to 64 teams.

Princeton is #40 using ESPN's formula.

Penn shows up six slots higher as #34.

No other Ivy League school scored better than #225.
