The 2020-21 ICT Zone College Basketball Rankings
The College Basketball Season is finally back after the world was thrown into chaos by the pandemic. With the return of College Basketball comes the return of our elite ranking system.
Here at the ICT Zone, we rely on a satirical and unconventional ranking system. No analysis, no subjectivity, if a lower-ranked team defeats a higher-ranked team, then the two teams automatically switch rankings. After all, you're only as good as your last game.
With great power comes great responsibility, so with that ranking system, it means it is our duty to also award what we call the ICT Zone College Basketball National Championship.
Our National Champion is just whoever is in first place of our rankings come the end of the college basketball season.
We think it's time we start sending a banner to our National Champions, they need to know what they've accomplished is on par, if not arguably bigger than winning March Madness.
With that said, here is our first ranking of the season. Rhode Island, Virginia Tech, Richmond, and San Diego State are the big winners.
