Last week, Jake Adkins, a college basketball content creator, posted the Ultimate College Basketball Exam, a 40-question challenge aimed at testing even the most ardent college hoops fan’s knowledge of the sport, on his Twitter page.
If you consider yourself a college basketball buff, you should take it.
I do consider myself to be a college basketball buff, and I attempted the test. I scored 32/40.
Some of the questions are tricky, and to be honest, I’m still not sure why I got one of them wrong. But otherwise, it’s pretty straightforward. Your knowledge will absolutely be tested, and you probably won’t pull a perfect score. You will have fun racking your brain for answers, though, and it will take you back to previous days in college basketball.
Time to hit the books.
The Ultimate College Basketball Exam
What questions did you have the most issue answering correctly? Which ones are you surprised anyone who watches college basketball would possibly get wrong?
I loved taking this quiz as I enjoy putting my sports knowledge to the test. This is an official open statement: please send me any and all college basketball questions, and I will accept your challenge. I’m sure there are many people who know the sport and its history better than me, but I have never met someone in person who knows more than me. Please, let me look stupid and/or feed my ego. Try me.
Here are the stakes, though: if I fail your exam (worse than 70 percent), then I will give you a shout out to my 407, and counting, extremely loyal Twitter followers. If I pass your test, though, I am entitled to your first born.
These are the terms of the agreement. Now, do your best, or worst if you hate children.
