State hotbed (per capita): Indiana
Indiana, home of Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird, and lovable-crazy Zach Randolph, truly is basketball's breadbasket. Kentucky, Mississippi, and Louisiana produce a lot of players as well, and Illinois and New York—two large states that almost always get cut down in per capita adjustments—come in fourth and sixth.
Metro hotbed (per capita): Muncie, Ind.
Small-city Indiana comes in strong again, with Muncie taking the top spot, and Terre Haute coming in fifth. (Anderson also cracked the top 10, at No. 8.) Mississippi also had two in the top 10, with Jackson at fourth and Meridian at ninth.
