2019-20 College Basketball Rankings: Week 10
Here at the ICT Zone our rankings are molded after Ric Flair's famous quote, "to be the man, you gotta beat the man." The week's ranking are solely on the week's results so if a lower ranked team defeats a higher ranked team, the two teams automatically swap rankings.

Traditional powerhouses in Kentucky and Kansas also return to our top 25 after a few weeks off.
Tune in next week to see how the week develops.
