11/19/2019

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.

Well, well, we have a new number 1 team in the country and they are the Evansville Purple Aces after their shocking upset of the Kentucky Wildcats in Kentucky. Evansville finished last season with a record of 11-21, but hey its a new season and rules are rules.
