INFOGRAPHIC: Which school has produced the most players on NBA Playoff rosters?

Apr 21, 2014, 10:23 AM EDT

Can you guess which school has produced the most players currently on an NBA team in the Playoffs?

Duke has eight. Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas all have six. Solid numbers from some of the most well-known basketball factories in the country, but the team that has sent the most alumni into this year’s NBA postseason is … Florida.

Nine former Gators, five of whom are starters, are currently trying to win an NBA title: Bradley Beal, Matt Bonner, Nick Calathes, Udonis Haslem, David Lee, Mike Miller, Joakim Noah, Chandler Parsons and Marreese Speights. That list doesn’t include Al Horford, either, who plays for the Atlanta Hawks and is out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle.

Here is the infographic from Reddit user uvabballfan with a complete list of which colleges have produced players on NBA Playoff rosters (click on the image to enlarge):

    Hmmm. Evidently, uvabballfan didn’t check his homework on this one. He’s got University of TN listed as having one player. That should be two – CJ Watson and Tobias Harris (Pacers and Magic, respectively). Each meets the GP and MPG criteria and each is currently on the roster of his respective team. Wonder how many of the others are incorrect?

      Hmmm. Maybe I should read the post more carefully next time. Forgot that Orlando isn’t in the playoffs. Doh!
