2019 CBB Rankings: Week 21

04/02/2019

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, Presbyterian topped the rankings for the very first time. This time we have a new debutant in Marshall, who defeated Presbyterian in the CIT Quarter finals. The other changes in the top 25 were fueled by the NCAA Tournament.

All four teams in the Final Four  are now in the top 5 with Auburn retaining their second ranking, Michigan State at 3, Virginia at 4 and Texas Tech rounding up the top 5 at fifth. Duke, Purdue, Houston and Oregon all stumbled down the standings as a result of their season ending losses.

Next week will see the champion crowned, along with the rest of the top 25. Tune in to see how the final week of college basketball shapes our standings.
