With all of the options student athletes have for higher education today, it can be tough to choose which direction to take. One of our goals at College Factual is to give you as much information as we can - such as our Best Colleges for Division II Men's Basketball in Alabama ranking - to help you make that decision.

Our analysis looked at 6 schools in Alabama to determine which ones were the best for D2 Men's Basketball athletes in Alabama. Our ranking is based on several objective factors, including the school's overall quality and the athletic competitiveness of the school. We steer clear of subjective measures since they don't give a clear picture when determining how one school compares to another. So, even if a school has a great team, it won't place well if it is also considered a low quality college or university.
