Blame AAU basketball, blame the one-and-done generation, blame whatever you want, but what cannot be argued is that there is an international wave taking over the NBA. Increasingly it seems like the best and most influential players in the NBA are from countries and regions outside of the U.S.
2019 CBB Rankings: Week Fourteen

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.

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.
