The Oklahoma City Thunder won the draft. This was the first year in my Thunder fandom where I was nervous about the draft. This was going to be the make-or-break it for the rebuild.

2019 CBB Rankings: Week Fourteen
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.
Finally after several weeks at number one, Princeton finally fell to Yale. As traditional here, Yale is now the number one team in the country. Miye Oni led Yale to victory with a 35 point explosion to go along with 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Miye Oni's story is one of the most amazing in college sports and its only right that he leads Yale to a number one ranking.
The rest of college basketball also shook up our rankings with 13 total changes this week. Florida State jumped from unranked to third and Marquette moves all the way to 4th after defeating a resurgent Villanova team. South Carolina, Michigan, Texas, Providence, Michigan State, Iowa and Houston round out the list of previously unranked teams now in the top 25. Toledo and Akron also swapped spots after Toledo came away with an eleven point victory.
Tune in next week to see the new top 25.

Safe to say, the Bulls exceed expectations. Before the season, it was unclear how Lavine and Derozan would fit next to each other. They put those conversations to...
