2019 CBB Rankings: Week 20

03/26/2019

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 based solely on the week's results so if a lower ranked team defeats a higher ranked team, the two teams automatically swap rankings.

Last Week we gave you our NCAA Tournament favorites as we headed into the tournament with Cornell at number one. This week, the Presbyterian Blue Hose are your new number one team in the country. Robert Morris took down Cornell before falling to Presbyterian in the second round of the Collegeinsider tournament. This marks the first time a team from the Big South conference has led the rankings.

Our 2018 tournament favorites are back in the the top five with Purdue moving into fourth with a victory over Villanova. Overall, there were 13 total changes mostly fueled by the NCAA Tournament. Wofford are a welcome addition to the rankings, slotting in for the first time at number 16. 

Tune in next week to see how the post season tournament further shake up our rankings.
