NCAA Division I independent schools (basketball)
In 2013, there will likely be one independent member (New Jersey Institute of Technology) since the Great West Conference will fold on July 1, 2013, and NJIT has not yet found a new conference. This is most likely to happen because a conference must have at least six schools with men's basketball teams to remain a recognized basketball conference, and NJIT is the only Great West Conference member that has not announced a move to a new conference in 2013.
The University of New Orleans will join the Southland Conference in 2013. The school is also looking to add football around 2016. California State University, Bakersfield will join the Western Athletic Conference in 2013.
Below are the current institutions listed as Division I Independents in men's basketball:
|New Jersey Institute of Technology||Highlanders||Newark, New Jersey||1881||Public||9,944|
