2019 CBB Rankings: Week Fifteen
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, Yale moved to number one and this week they remain in that spot. Kentucky moved up to number two, despite suffering a loss to LSU earlier in the week, Kentucky bounced back by defeating previous #2, Tennessee. In total there were 14 changes this week.
Spots number 10-14 were taken over by 5 new additions to the top 25 in Iowa State, Virginia, St. John's, Buffalo and UAB. The other three newcomers are LSU at 16, Illinois at 22 and Boston College at 24.
Tune in next week to see how the top 25 shakes up.
