Sixty players will have their names called on NBA Draft night on June 22. That’s good.

The bad news is, in addition to all draft-eligible college seniors, a total of 182 players are early entry candidates for this festivities. Twenty-six of those players are college freshmen.

Yes, the one-and-done player. He spends one year on a college campus biding time until he can go pro thanks to an NBA rule passed in time for the 2006 draft that mandated a draft-eligible player must be 19 years of age or one year out of high school.

In the 11 drafts in which the current rules have been in place, 96 college freshmen have been selected in either the first or second round.

Your Trivia Tuesday challenge this week is to identify the 33 schools that have produced these one-and-done players. If you don’t get the team that has produced the most, you will be severely penalized and ridiculed. Just kidding, but it’s pretty much a no-brainer.

You’ve got eight minutes on the clock…good luck!
