College Basketball Team Abbreviations

Name all the NCAA Division I college basketball teams based on their ESPN shortform
School name only, no mascots or nicknames
Given abbreviation will not be accepted as an answer for schools that frequently use both initials and full name
Schools whose predominantly used name is the same as their ESPN shortform do not need to be guessed
IUI, MHST, and UWG are not official ESPN shortforms for these teams. Each of these teams will begin play in the 2024-25 season (IUPUI will be split into separate IUI and PUI institutions; IUI is expected to retain IUPUI's athletic identity)
