HARD WORK PAYS OFF: Choose wisely when picking your college in NBA 2K22

Remember to consider your MyPLAYER archetype before you choose the school, but we've picked the three best overall schools to choose from.

Florida Gators - Most well rounded

If you're looking for a school, but still aren't sure where your build is going to end up, you should choose the Florida Gators.

You won't get a lot of badge points in one area, but you'll encompass all four with this bonus:

Finishing +1
Shooting +1

Syracuse Orange - Good for shooters and playmakers

If your archetype focuses on shooting and playmaking, heading to Syracuse is your best bet.

You'll be missing out on Finishing and DEF/REB, but you'll make up for it with a boost to Playmaking and Shooting in MyCAREER.

Finishing +0

West Virginia Mountaineers - Best option for defenders

Out of the entire list, the West Virginia Mountaineers might be the only team you aren't familiar with. However, they've got some great MyPLAYER bonuses for defenders and a slight boost to finishing.

Sure, you could go to Texas Tech and get +4 to Def/Reb, but you'd be sacrificing all the other categories. That isn't the case with West Virginia.

Finishing +1
