It is time to throw away the American inferiority complex with its place in the sport, where many blindly claim that technique should come above all in choosing and developing the best prospects and that the U.S. is not an international power because it cares too much about athleticism.
2019 College Basketball Rankings: Opening Week
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.
Welcome to our inaugural week of the 2019-20 College Basketball Season. Last season saw us correctly predict the college basketball national champions but more importantly we crowned the first ICT Zone National Champions. The Marshall University Thundering Herd walked away with the inaugural ICT Zone National Championship. This season offers a new opportunity for a new National champion by the end of the season.
As always, our initial rankings are based on the AP Poll and from that point on chaos ensues. No matter a team's record, if they beat a higher ranked team then they automatically get that ranking.
With that said, Michigan State was at first to start the season but they swap spots with Kentucky after the loss to Kentucky. Same applies to Duke and Kansas. While Florida State, Washington and Texas all join as previously unranked teams. Slow start to the season but college basketball heats up fast on route to crowning our national champions on the last day of the season.
Tune in next week to see our new Top 25.
