2019 CBB Rankings: Week Sixteen

02/25/2019

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 Yale was at number one, this week we give you Harvard. Harvard is now our number one team in the country after defeating Yale courtesy of a buzzer beater by junior guard, Bryce Aiken.  We wonder how much longer Harvard can keep the number one spot.

Elsewhere, North Carolina slid into the top 3 after defeating Duke in a game that saw consensus number one pick, Zion Williamson go down after 30 seconds. Duke looked unstoppable at times and were led by senior forward, Luke Maye, who had one of the best individual games of the season with 30 points and 15 rebounds. 

In total, there were 16 changes among which were 11 newcomers to the top 25. The two Michigan powerhouses swapped spots after Michigan State took down Michigan. This college basketball season is extremely intriguing, there are no favorites. It's anyones ball game.

Tune in next week for an updated top 25.
