We’re one month away from March Madness, but the 2015 season has been a maddeningly upsetting for a couple of HBCU basketball teams. Three of the five worst squads in (Division I) college basketball hail from HBCUs, according to Lost Letterman.

Here is our list, including both D1 and D2 squads.

5. Mississippi Valley State (4-18): Valley filled its non-conference schedule with Money Games, and they made sure to give the big schools the most bang for their buck. They lose by an average of 20 points per game.

4. Miles (2-16): Miles should have known it was trouble when it started the season with a two-point win and a one-point loss against two NAIA squads. The team has 10 double-digit loss only other win came against Kentucky State last week.

3. Fort Valley State (1-17): The Wildcats have lost a dozen games by double-digits, and their only win came against Miles.

2. Grambling State (2-17): The once-proud Tiger basketball program has seen tough times as of late, and this year appears to be no different. Both Division II schools on this list have more wins against NCAA opponents than Grambling, whose only two wins came against NAIA squads. The Tigers are dead-last in D1 in scoring at just 49.9 points per game

1. FAMU (0-22): Just when fans didn’t think things could get any worse after football season,,, basketball season came along. Not only have the Rattlers lost all of their games, they haven’t even been close, as all losses have come by more than five points.

The last couple of years haven’t been great for HBCU basketball, but this really may be rock bottom.
