It was determined Kentucky is the best at producing points guard and post defenders, and also really awesome at producing shooting guards, wings and interior scorers. In fact, Kentucky cracked the top five at all five spots on the floor:

Point Guards, First Sharpshooters, Third Wings, Third Interior Scorers, Second Post Defenders, First

However, Duke took the top ranking for all three of the other positions, which is unfortunate for our bragging rights. Lexington is still the proud home of "Point Guard U" though. [ESPN.com]
