03/18/2019

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 saw Cornell at number one and that continues this week despite not qualifying for the NCAA Tournament. Cornell technically has not lost a game because they did not qualify for the conference tournament and as a result remain at number one.

Conference tournament week saw a total of 17 changes in the top 25. Duke and Villanova both slide back into the top 5 after some weeks out. Michigan State and Wisconsin both jumped up the top 25 while Seton Hall fell 8 spots. 

Old Dominion and Bowling Green also join the top 25 for the first time this season. Perfect timing. 

Tomorrow, we give our NCAA tournament prediction as we did last year. Stay tuned.
