CBS Sports Network and CBSSports.com are preparing to unveil their list of the 16 greatest college basketball teams of all time, but first, they want to hear the opinion of the fans.

Surely, Big Blue Nation will have something to say.

With seven national championships in the storied history of Kentucky basketball, there are a handful of teams that can make a case.

How about Adolph Rupp, Alex Groza, Ralph Beard and the 1947-48 team that brought home UK's first title and went on to win an Olympic gold medal?

Or Cliff Hagan and the 1953-54 squad that finished the season a perfect 25-0?

You certainly can't forget about the 1995-96 team that featured nine future NBA players and defeated John Calipari's Massachusetts team on the way to UK's sixth national title.

CBSSports.com's panel of Gary Parrish, Jeff Goodman, Jeff Borzello and Matt Norlander has already cast its vote and two of the teams just mentioned made appearances. The 1995-96 team received two second-place votes, a fifth-place vote and a sixth-place vote. The 1953-54 squad came in at 13th on one ballot.

Before the official list is unveiled in a four-part series on March 19-20, fans have a chance to make their voices heard in one of three ways:

Twitter - Pick your best college basketball team of all time and tweet with the hashtag #CBS16.

Facebook - Go to CBSSports.com's Eye on College Basketball page and leave your thoughts.

CBSSports.com - Submit a comment on any article related to the "16" promotion like this one or this one.

During the CBS Sports Network broadcast of the four-part series, some of the best fan submissions will be incorporated.

Putting together a strong case for the team you pick should be easy. Choosing one, though, will be difficult.
