I think that one thing that is overlooked when choosing a college is location. If I was being highly recruited and alot of colleges wanted me, I would most likely choose the school that was closest, and was decent at the sport. If you go to a decent team and are already the go to guy, that helps you if you somehow make it to the NBA or NFL or whatever. In this case NBA. But being the go to guy and getting all the shots you wanted, would raise your stats and draw attention. It would also hurt if you lost, but thats where the "decent" school comes into play.
Alot of basketball stars came from small colleges and university's. It would suprise you.

I don't see how anyone could choose playing time as an answer. You goto college to get an education in academics. Basketball is a side note while you are there. The chances of you playing proffesionally are slim and none.
1) Academics 2) Prestige 3) Coaching Staff 4) Location 5) Playing time 3
